Academic Credit

Given the text study and informal education involved in the program, many high schools – public and private – throughout the U.S. and Canada offer high school credit for participating in Seminar.

Schools have granted from two to five academic credits, while schools that don’t offer credit will often list Seminar on official high school transcripts. While Ramah Seminar can’t award credits, we are authorized to issue an official course transcript in conjunction with Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim (TRY), the Ramah Jerusalem High School, which is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges.

If you choose to register for Seminar as a high school course through your school, it can be as a pass/fail class or for a letter grade that requires papers during and after Seminar, depending on the school’s requirements. For further information about Seminar credit, please contact our office.

It is also possible, by special request, to receive certification for community service hours, if applicable.

Further information and an application for credit will be found in your online Seminar application.
