At UCanachieve, we know that nothing is more precious than your child.
We understand how painful and frightening than feeling it can be when your teenager or young adult is losing his or her way and disconnecting from your family, your values, or even his or her own “self”.
We are here to help.
The UCanachieve Learning Alternatives program offers you, the Jewish family, an authentic, Jewish alternative to your child’s needs.
The educators at out Jewish boarding school are a group of creative, talented and dedicated professionals who have spent two decades helping Jewish teens realize their inherent potential.
Boarding with Families
Students live with staff families who are dedicated to providing a home environment for young people in search of their identity. Shabbat and holidays are spent with the family, as well as meals throughout the week.
At our Jewish boarding school we house our students in small clusters in different communities. This allows each student to have a nucleus of a social group within his particular living arrangement. On the other hand, the intimacy of the group prevents the living setting from deteriorating into an institutional dormitory.
We believe that the experience of family living is essential to the therapeutic process and is a necessary bridge for having the student reintegrate into his own family.
Students with relatives in Israel, who are interested in spending holiday time with their families, are able to do so as long as prior arrangements are made with our staff.
Friday and Saturday (Shabbat) constitute the Israeli weekend. Friday is a time for each student to reflect upon his weekly achievements and plan a course of action for the following week. In conjunction with our Guidance Counselor, the student determines the most important life areas that need to be strengthened.
In addition, Friday is a time where each student pursues an area of specialized individual interest ranging from painting to physical fitness.
On Friday each student is also given a service (chesed) assignment. This involves various acts of giving, such as spending time with the elderly, helping young families, or delivering food packages to the poor.
Shabbat is a day for spiritual regeneration. The boys spend Shabbat at the homes of our staff members. We observe the Shabbat as a day of physical and spiritual rest and renewal.
