Welcome to the online home of the Hebrew Charter School Center (HCSC), a nonprofit organization created by the Areivim Philanthropic Group in 2009 to help advance the Hebrew language charter school movement. HCSC joins a growing movement to develop public educational opportunities for young people to learn within a dual language environment. These programs are a proven way of getting students more engaged in their studies, building literacy, raising academic achievement and preparing children to live and thrive in a global, interdependent environment.
HCSC works with planning teams and existing charter schools across the country to:
- Build and increase the capacity for designing new, high quality Hebrew language charter schools;
- Provide resources for established schools;
- Grow a field of educators prepared to lead Hebrew language charter schools and the movement;
- Promote and support a network of high quality Hebrew language charter schools;
- Support local communities to develop Hebrew language charter schools and to maximally benefit from their impact on children and families.
