The Play! Arlecchino and The City of Love 2018
Applications Are Open for the 2019 Bronfman Fellowship
Every year, twenty-six outstanding North American teenagers are selected as Bronfman Fellows. The highlight of the Fellowship is a free transformative and intellectually adventurous summer in Israel, where Fellows engage in thought-provoking study and conversation and make lifelong friends with a pluralistic group of peers. Our high-caliber educators focus on teaching a broad range of traditional and contemporary Jewish texts at a university level. Fellows encounter the land and people of Israel, study major issues in contemporary Jewish life, meet with some of today’s most influential figures, and learn about themselves and each other. The Fellowship year continues with monthly virtual meetings and a seminar in the spring. Fellows continue their association with the Fellowship through our extraordinarily active, 1200+ alumni community.
Applicants must be in 11th grade, self-identify as Jewish, and live in the U.S. or Canada. The deadline is November 30.
Contact Dr. Rogers for more info.
Wrestling begins on October 22nd!

From the College Counseling Office
A note from Dr. Rogers – I want to thank all of the students who have met with visiting college admissions counselors this year. Attendance is way up from last year, and students have been arriving prepared with good questions and ready to engage. Keep up the good work! We have many more visits planned for this fall, including Auburn, Alabama, Augusta University, Rhodes College, SMU, and more. Keep watching Acad Daily for more info.
Seniors applying for regular decision should submit their blue sheets to Dr. Reid and Dr. Rogers as soon as they can. All sheets must be submitted before Nov 9. Don’t forget to also complete a transcript request (available here). Even though both forms are necessary, it is the blue sheets that drive the process — and should therefore be submitted ASAP.
