10th Grade Information

Chai School is all about your Jewish Life!

Chai School stands on three pillars:
Torah, Avodah, and Gemilut Chasidim.

Credit-based system:
Chai School completion is based on credits, rather than attendance. In this way if a student has (for example) basketball or theater during one season, he or she may elect to take the bulk of that year’s ‘credits’ during a different season. Students are also welcome to choose to participate without receiving credits.

A “complete year” in Chai School is 36 credits for 7-10th graders. You are encouraged to take enough credits to have a complete year, but the only year that is required is 10th grade if you participate in Confirmation. If you complete 11th and 12th grade you will graduate from Chai School and receive a special gift and certificate and a recommendation letter from Mount Zion for college and scholarships.

10th Grade: 36 Credits

10th grade is the year in which teens have the opportunity to take part in Confirmation, if they choose to do so. In order to participate in Confirmation, 10th Graders are required to attend the Confirmation Retreat and weekly classes Wednesday nights from 5:45-7:15 pm with Rabbi Spilker. Students must also fulfill their Shabbat service requirements and participate in the evening Confirmation Shavuot Service. Meeting Confirmation requirements will “complete” the 10th grade year.

10th Graders May Attend Other Classes whether or not they are choosing to participate in Confirmation. There are many classes, programs, and opportunities open to all 10th graders. As with 7-9th grades, 36 credits will complete a year for the purposes of Chai School.
