Israel Programs Admissions Director, AMHSI and JNF, Mid-Atlantic
Alexander Muss High School in Israel, a proud partner of Jewish National Fund (JNF) and known as HSI or AMHSI, delivers a transformative experience for teens through its semester and summer abroad programs in Israel. Unlike any other program, we are the only pluralist, non-denominational, fully accredited international study abroad program in Israel for high school students – one in which Israel becomes a living classroom. Students spend part of the academic school year or summer in Israel during the sophomore, junior or senior year of high school on an academic and fun adventure, earning high school and college credit. Students enjoy college-prep and college living in a high school environment while exploring 4,000 years of fascinating history, experiencing the land, culture and people of Israel. AMHSI students return home with a heightened level of maturity and responsibility, along with strong bonds to new friends and a deeper connection to the State of Israel that lasts a lifetime.
