The YU School Partnership, supported by a grant from the Jim Joseph Foundation, is pleased to be accepting applications for the 4th year of the Online Certificate Programs for Jewish educators and our PD Modules.


Year-Long Certificate Programs

Each certificate program is made up of 3 courses lasting 10 weeks each. There is also a 1 week break in between each course, for a total length of approximately 50 weeks. The programs begin in September and run through June. The 3 courses in each program cannot be taken individually, but must be taken as a unit and in the correct order.

These programs are taught entirely online and asynchronously with weekly assignments, which can be completed at any time during the week. Our custom learning management system is created to ensure the best possible learning experience for our particpants.  Outstanding instructors will provide weekly feedback and practical take-aways to enhance the learning of students in the classroom.  Interact with peers from around the country and the world who are committed to their ongoing growth and improving the outcomes for their students.

Upon completion of the course, each participant will receive 7 CEU's for their work, an official transcript and a certificate of completion.

The cost of the program is $2,500. Scholarships are available and can be requested through the application process.
