The MTA Freshman Experience
In an effort to ensure that freshmen have a smooth high school transition, MTA proudly offers an enhanced Freshman Experience, including fun events, guidance sessions, and team-building workshops, which enable talmidim to bond cohesively as a grade and interact with boys with whom they may not share classes. On Wednesday, November 18, freshmen had an amazing time bonding with their friends and rebbeim at Top Golf! They can’t wait for their next exciting event, a special late-night extravaganza at MTA, coming up in just two weeks!
Central Offers Stern College Courses
Central seniors are privileged to have the opportunity to learn at Stern College this year on Zoom and earn college credit while learning with preeminent Judaic scholars. Nine students spend Monday and Wednesday mornings in “Personalities in Shmuel” with Mrs. Moriah Rosensweig, “Challenging Situations in Tanach” with Dr. Gila Schwerd, “Medical Ethics” with Rabbi Saul Berman, and “Nachmanidies” with Rabbi Mordechai Cohen. Central students are held to the expectations of regular college students, including a midterm and a final. Senior Gabriella Steinberg says, “I am really enjoying the experience of learning on such a high level with like-minded girls who also want to challenge themselves. You can’t get this in any other high school! I am hoping to go to Stern College after my year in Israel.”
Central Virtual Open House
The first-ever Central Virtual Open House was held this past motzaei Shabbat! In order to add a personal touch, before the event even began, Central faculty, parents, and students formed a “pizza brigade,” and personally delivered a pie of pizza to the home of each prospective student. Then the program began, featuring addresses from senior Shira Ebbin, G.O. president; Rabbi Joshua Goller, masgiach ruchani; senior Rebecca Mermelstein; and Head of School Ms. Bracha Rutner.
A student panel, which allowed students to share their various Central experiences, was moderated by Associate Principal Ms. Leah Moskovich. After the conclusion of the formal event, an email was sent out with additional links to classroom lessons, a virtual tour, a parent video, and a virtual Club Fair, so that prospective parents and students could continue their exploration of Central. It was a wonderful evening with an amazing turnout, including many current students and faculty! Tremendous thanks and kol ha’kavod to the admissions team, Mrs. Aliza Gewirtz and Ms. Kymmie Baker, on a job well done!
