Jewish Studies Courses Online: Torah High has become a focal point for Jewish learning nationwide. Founded in 2003 the school provides a safe, nurturing, fun environment where young Jewish students can become more familiar with Jewish philosophy, ethics, history and creativity while earning academic credits at either the high school or college level. Jewish Virtual High School (JVHS) is an offshoot of Torah High that seeks to fill the interactive learning void facing Jewish high school students by offering them online Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) compliant courses on everything from biology to Israel advocacy.
The goal of Torah High is to enrich the lives of young Jewish students by providing them courses that reinforce their heritage while allowing them to find their own place in the world. The Jewish Virtual High School picks up that baton and carries it to the Internet where Jewish high school students can cover some of the same Jewish studies courses online and earn OSSD credits in the process.
The JVHS exists to extend educational possibilities for Jewish high school students by offering standard high school and Jewish oriented full credit courses. JVHS is the first such online school to offer such courses and will be expanding the scope of our curriculum as we move forward confidently into the future. JVHS Jewish studies courses online are:
At JVHS we believe that while brick and mortar schools will continue to occupy an important place in the academic lives of young people they will increasingly be sharing that place with online educational resources that can deliver superior convenience, accessibility and value.
