LifePrep aims to provide Yeshiva high school students with a relevant and culturally sensitive secular education providing them with the knowledge and skills they may need to succeed in life.
Our goal is to equip students with the tools and skills necessary to advance in their education and chosen careers, promoting success as productive members of the community. With practical and engaging curricula customized to and compatible with the core Jewish values of our respective member high schools taught by world-class instructors, LifePrep is equipped to implement and track the successful execution of its mission.
We Design it Together
We Teach it Together
We Run it Together
In just its 3rd year, LifePrep is fully servicing
13 Yeshivos with 45 instructors.
LifePrep has designed an interactive and highly relevant curriculum tailored to the students of our generation, focusing on life skills. Utilizing module-based instruction, each class includes an eye-catching PowerPoint presentation and hands-on coursework, and presents true-to-life, realistic scenarios.
Even core competencies, while taught in the context of everyday life, are designed to meet the requirements for core competencies (Math, History, Science and Language Arts) while being taught in an engaging manner. For example, Anatomy and Physiology becomes “Your Body, Your Health, Your Life.” Economics is “Personal Finance & Budgeting.” Language Arts becomes “Persuasive Writing“ and “Public Speaking.“
LifePrep’s unique curriculum attracts top-notch talent, providing the Yeshivos with prominent professionals and specialists to teach each course. Instructors bring their real-world expertise into the classroom instead of presenting dry information “by the book”—eliciting energy and enthusiasm from the students.
Paramedics and health professionals teach “Your Body, Your Health, Your Life.” Mayors, politicians, and attorneys teach Government & Law. Accountants, financial advisers, and businessmen teach Financial Literacy and Budgeting.
Before the school year, LifePrep collaborates with the principal to design a program in line with his Yeshiva’s specifications. Having designed a curriculum, and provided the staffing to implement it, LifePrep continues to support the principal throughout the year, by monitoring and ensuring continued compliance. Available options for principals include grading, report cards, student attendance records (emailed monthly to parents), orientation, and PTA meetings.
Modular classes enable instructors to teach more material in less time, so the periods allocated are utilized to their fullest. Excited to learn material that provides tangible real-life skills, students begin to appreciate and enjoy their studies. They come to class with a positive mindset and respect for their teachers, whom they know have already “made it” in their fields. The result is less student apathy, less teacher frustration, and fewer discipline problems.
While there will always be some students who act out, the principal’s job of maintaining discipline is made far easier by having a structured, stimulating program, taught by professionals, which is overseen, monitored, and tracked by LifePrep.
