Posnack Virtual School Academic Program
At Posnack School we develop well-rounded scholars comfortable in the rigors of the classroom, the inspiration of the stage, and the hallowed spirituality of the house of prayer.
The Posnack Virtual School curriculum includes courses in both general studies and Judaic studies. Posnack School requires its students to take a rigorous course load of eight courses per semester. Posnack School offers 15 different AP courses for students in their sophomore, junior, and senior years. Moreover, even though AP Hebrew courses are unavailable from the College Board, many Posnack School students achieve sufficient proficiency in Hebrew to request language credits from their respective colleges. Posnack Virtual School students have access to a well-rounded list of course offerings that meet and exceed state and national standards in language arts, history, mathematics, science, and foreign language. In addition to the required courses, a number of electives are available to the students.
