Children are admitted to BJEP on a first-come, first-served basis. If BJEP does not have enough space for all applicants, children are admitted in the following order: siblings of BJEP students or of BJEP graduates; children and grandchildren of current Brandeis faculty members, administrators and staff members; children and grandchildren of Brandeis alumni, fellows, trustees or others tangibly linked to the university; and children of families with no Brandeis or BJEP affiliation.
All admissions into BJEP at the third grade level or higher are conditional upon Hebrew language skills. The family must agree to provide tutoring if deemed necessary by the director.
Parents of children with learning, behavioral or other challenges should contact the director to discuss their child’s situation. A special education coordinator is available to provide guidance and ongoing support.
