Upon completion students receive an Israeli high school diploma and matriculation certificate, recognized by top universities worldwide. The program is fully funded and supervised by the Israeli Ministry of Education, and students receive a generous package of benefits that includes flights, full room & board, tours of Israel, and much more. With over 17,000 alumni, 28 schools and 1,900 students currently in their schools - this is with no doubt a success story.
