Pre-Collegiate Learning Center of New Jersey (PCLC), Awareness Campaign for Innovative Jewish Day School, East Brunswick, New Jersey
Targum Shlishi undertook an awareness and fundraising effort to help support the Pre-Collegiate Learning Center of New Jersey (PCLC), an innovative Jewish high school in East Brunswick, New Jersey that created a groundbreaking approach to Jewish and general education, providing an extremely high level of education while keeping costs down. “The idea itself is not revolutionary, but the execution is. PCLC has come up with an approach that is highly individualized for each student through blended learning, which mixes onsite and online instruction,” said Aryeh Rubin, director of Targum Shlishi. At the same time, it pursued a restructuring of an approach to the teaching model by relying heavily on part-time teachers and subject specialists, much in the way that medical and business schools deliver education. Unfortunately, the school was facing severe financial difficulties and was not able to continue.
