We opened in the Fall of 2019 with a Freshman class. We added an incoming class of Freshmen in each successive year, so that we will serve the full range of 9th-12th grade in the 2022-2023 school year and graduate our first class in the Spring of 2023.
For now, we only have a boys division. Over time, however, if there is sufficient demand, we would open a girls division as well.
Typically, students are admitted to the Yeshiva on the basis of a completed application, letters of recommendation from previous Rabbeim and teachers, and an interview. YMC’s professional staff are able to meet the needs of a broad range of students. However, we are not equipped to support (and, therefore, cannot accept) students with significant academic or behavioral difficulties.
Needs-based scholarships are available. Applications for financial aid are reviewed by a confidential committee and awards are decided on a case-by-case basis. The details of the financial aid application process are available upon request.
Our Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Elie Tuchman, is the rabbinic leader of the school. In addition, HaRav Hershel Schachter, שליט”א, has agreed to serve as our posek and will be available to Rabbi Tuchman for any questions that arise.
Boys should wear solid colored full length pants (not cargo pants or jeans) in navy, grey, black, or khaki. Shirts may be long or short sleeved, but must have a collar (either polo or button-down) and may be any solid color. No insignia or logos are permitted with the exception of YMC logo-wear (not yet available). Of course, Tzitzit and Kippah must be worn at all times.
We will have a broad range of extra-curricular activities in which our students can participate. To a certain extent, the activities that we offer in a particular year are dependent on what the students are interested in, so we cannot provide a definitive list of what activities will be offered in a given year. We will pursue any activity (which is practical to implement and Yeshiva appropriate) in which a reasonable number of students plan to participate.
