What happens if there isn’t enough enrollment to launch an emerging Torah day school? What are the parents’ options when moving to a kiruv position that doesn’t have in-town chinuch for the older children? How can a community get a girls’ high school off the ground without major overhead costs?
Computer-based courses can be very useful as turn-key solutions replacing the need for specialized teachers providing frontal instruction in every subject. The computer-based lessons walk the student through the learning process, with interaction and practice, making learning fun. It’s like an instant school, ready to go!
Melamed Academy is an online Yeshiva day school offering flexible enrollment options, either as a full-time student or on a single course basis for kindergarten through twelfth grade. This innovative nonprofit school was designed to expand the current options of day schools and families while shrinking their expenses.
As a state-registered school in New Jersey, Melamed Academy provides students in any state with credits transferrable to a continuing high school. Alternatively, students can complete their high school diploma at Melamed Academy over 3-4 years.

Please advise if there is any human interaction between teacher and child and among the children. Can events/trips be arranged together?
Hello Julia, Your idea is great. Currently the teachers and students interact on the computer and by phone. Some students arrange informal visits among themselves. I’m sure they’d love attending a Melamed Academy student convention one day!
i like the idea of human interaction with the teachers at sometime in the year
It would be nice if students could meet their teachers in person. Is there any way it could be done?
CAN A KIDS WHO ALREADY ATTEND ON LINE SECULAR SCHOOL JOIN THE ACADEMY FOR HEBREW CHINUCH
Yes, many students attend for Torah Studies only
