USY High is an international high school program for juniors and seniors in high school who wish to spend two months learning and living in Israel (February-March). The program combines general studies equivalent to that in their home communities with 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. USY High 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. USY High is based at the Israel Goldstein Youth Village in Jerusalem and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. USY High is run in cooperation with United Synagogue Youth.

I have learned, felt, seen, tasted so much on this trip. I have been given a chance to individually develop and grow, while still following this structured setting. I have created friends and loves that are the most amazing ever!
