Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim
Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim (TRY) is an international high school program offering sophomores, juniors, and seniors a semester (February-June) of general studies equivalent to those in their home communities and an intensive curriculum of Hebrew, as well as Jewish and Israel studies such as is possible only in Jerusalem and Israel. Students travel throughout the country and spend time in such settings as kibbutz and Gadna. TRY offers a unique opportunity through which the Israel experience becomes an integral part of the student's personal development. Graduates return to their home schools with a deepened understanding of their Jewishness and a more mature sense of self. TRY is based at the Israel Goldstein Youth Village in Jerusalem and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. Our high school department is also available to plan tailor-made academic programs for Jewish high schools.

TRY was the most amazing thing I have ever done in my life. I felt like such a changed person when i came home and it really helped me learn not only about Israel and Judaism, but also about myself.

I consider TRY/USY High to be brilliantly conceived and executed, and one of the most effective educational and spiritual experiences my son has encountered.
