SAR High School Hosts Open House

On Sunday morning, October 14, SAR High School held its annual Open House recruitment event for prospective ninth grade students and their parents. Over 825 students and their parents visited the campus for an introduction to the SAR High School experience. The two-part program was designed to give attendees a taste of the unique SAR experience. Rabbi Harcsztark opened the program by articulating the educational goals and values that make SAR a truly unique, mission-driven Modern Orthodox high school. Rabbi Harcsztark introduced Rabbi Jonathan Kroll who will be joining SAR HS as co-principal with Rabbi Harcsztark beginning next year. Prospective students and families then heard from Eliana Schochet, a member of SAR High School’s Class of 2019, who shared her thoughts on SAR with a virtual tour of the building through her eyes. The program then continued with a school video followed by Ms. Lerea’s welcome remarks and explanation of the admission process.

The second part of the program gave students and families the opportunity to attend teacher presentations and student panels. This allowed prospective students and parents to experience firsthand the creative talents of our faculty and to ask questions of current SAR students. Lastly, attendees convened in the gymnasium for refreshments and “A Taste of SAR,” a bazaar of co-curricular, academic and chesed opportunities available to students at SAR High School. Some of the groups represented included Torah Bowl, College Bowl, Model UN, Israel activism, health and medical awareness, investment club, Mock Trial, Cookies for a Cause, math and science activities, and media and sports clubs.

The morning’s program was a huge success and SAR looks forward to a very busy admissions season ahead!
