Who can apply?

NYC Day School and Yeshiva General Studies teachers and principals are the primary candidates for the program. While other Day School personnel may apply, there is a cost differential.

There are spots for 20 candidates in this program per cohort.  Candidates must have a NYS recognized BA/BS degree, and be prepared to participate in a full 36-credit graduate school program.

In addition, you must take the GRE Exam. There is no minimum score requirement by the state.

When and where does the program take place?

This SBL cohort program meets for six semesters over the course of two years. Cohort participants will register for 6 credits per semester.


Class meeting dates will be scheduled for Tuesday evenings in the Fall and Spring semesters and Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Summer semesters.  Classes begin at 6pm. No classes will be scheduled on Jewish holidays.  All classes will take place at Brooklyn College.

What is the cost? 

This program is funded through the Federal NCLB Title IIA program. Pending continued funding, tuition will be paid in full for NYC Day School General Studies staff. All related fees, i.e. application, textbooks, travel, etc. will be the responsibility of the participant.  Other day school personnel will have to self-fund, keeping in mind that tuition rates are residency related.
