Dear Parents and Applicants,

Thank you for your interest in Tzohar Seminary. 2024-25 applications are now open. 

We review each application in its entirety using a holistic review process to determine to the best of our ability whether a student will thrive at Tzohar Seminary. Since not all students showcase their abilities in the same way, each application is given careful consideration before an admission decision is reached. Tzohar seeks students who are committed to and actively observant of Torah Mitzvot, serious about learning, and interested and talented in the arts and looking to integrate creativity into an authentic seminary experience.

The following items will be required to submit an application for admissions. There will be upload slots in the application process for items 1-3. If you need to save and return to your application later, an email will be sent to you with the saved form information for you to continue editing. When you submit your application you will be redirected to the payment link for your application fee. Your high school will be automatically emailed with a transcript request upon submitting your application. 

  1. An essay

  2. Two letters of recommendation + two additional (non-family) references to call

  3. Photograph of student

  4. $100 application fee

  5. Email address at your high school for requesting official high school transcripts​​

After receiving the above items, including transcripts from our high school, applicants will be contacted regarding an interview. Feel free to bring a portfolio (samples of art, writing, performances, etc.) to your interview.

**Please note that Tzohar Seminary does not provide visas or legal paperwork for non-U.S. citizens.
