4 Frequently Asked Questions
How is the new Out-of-town Student Program (OSP) different from previous boarder programs?
The OSP is focused on attracting students from out-of-town who will contribute positively to the religious, academic, and social atmosphere of YGW. To that end the former Vaad HaChinuch, now integrated into the Rabbinic Governance Board, established seven core criteria for the student and their family to be considered for the program. Full admissions criteria are detailed in the OSP Admissions Policy. This Admissions Policy is a component of the new policies, procedures, and the various agreements to be adhered to by the student and their family for acceptance and continued participation in the OSP. All of these materials are accessible on this OSP webpage.

The Host Family Program was also revamped to identify local families who are equipped to provide the participating students with stability, guidance and social support in a Torah-observant household in addition to appropriate housing and meal accommodations. YGW will maintain an active partnership with the host families including training, site visits and on-going communication. Full host family policies can be viewed below.

Finally, YGW will have a multi-layered approach to monitoring the students in the program. In addition to our teachers who interact with the students every school day, and the host families, each division will have an OSP Manager and madrichim or madrichos whose tasks will be to interact with the students on a regular basis, identify potential problems, and support the students when they’re not in class. Full job descriptions can be viewed on this OSP page.

What “Additional Oversight” has been put in place?
1.The establishment of an “Enrollment Review Committee”. This committee, composed of three members or designates of the Rabbinic Governance Board (RGB) who receive no financial benefits from the school, will review that the process has been followed for each Menahel-recommended admission to the program.
2.The establishment of an “OSP Committee” of the Board of Directors that will oversee the program and meet regularly with the staff-leadership of the school.
3.The RGB will monitor all incident reports in order to be aware of egregious or persistent issues, with the full authority to intervene at any time.

Are there scholarships available for the OSP?
YGW has very limited funds for scholarships for out-of-town students. On average, YGW cannot extend scholarships beyond 25% of Tuition. There is no scholarship for housing, fees, or travel expenses.
 
What is the current fee for Room & Board?
The fee for the year is $5000. Payable as 10 - $500 payments.
