5 Students Admitted to Honors Program

An unprecedented five MHA / FYOS students were admitted into Yeshiva University's prestigious Honors Program for 2011-2012.  Applicants must have at least a 90 cumulative average throughout high school and score at least a combined 1400 in the Math and Verbal sections of the SATs or a 32 on the ACT to even be considered for the program.  Together with their acceptance, each of the five students received a significant merit-based scholarship which together amounts to nearly $100,000 per year.

Students who enroll in the Honors Program at Yeshiva University select from special honors courses from offerings in the humanities, Jewish studies, natural sciences and social sciences, whose enrollment is capped at eleven students. In their final three semesters, honor students each complete a Senior Project under the individual guidance of a faculty mentor.  In addition, students in the program participate in a rich variety of extracurricular events focusing on the cultural resources of New York City as well as summer programs abroad.
