Curriculum Highlights:

LEARN in a classroom without walls. LIVE 4,000 years of history. LOVE an adventure unlike any other. Grow in ways you could not have imagined. Build life long friendships. At AMHSI students plunge into a chronological study of Jewish history, beginning with the Biblical period and ending with the modern Middle East. AMHSI offers the unique opportunity for students to take their 'sequential' high school classes in addition to the core program, so that they don't fall behind regular school work. AMHSI is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and participants may receive full high school credit and six college credits.
