At Neve Sarah Herzog, the goal is enabling each student to reach her highest academic potential while simultaneously building a strong Jewish foundation. Neve Sarah Herzog also recognizes that the pursuit of excellence can take various forms and so a student can pursue a regular high school core curriculum or she can choose a specialized program. Those girls whose special abilities and talents can choose one of the special programs offered by Neve Sarah Herzog: art, film and new media, graphic design, dance, biomedical engineering and biology. These programs are designed not only to challenge and motivate program participants but to provide them with practical paths to further study or to the choice of a profession.
Neve Sarah offers accommodation to over 180 students. Today, most of these students are Ethiopian immigrants. Many arrive at the school lacking language skills and cultural customs and come from under-privileged families and poor neighborhoods around the country. The staff, teachers, professional workers and counselors make every effort to acclimate the students, filling in the gaps as necessary.

The Marilyn Cole and Francie Zusman-Sina Torah and Arts High School is a unique high school for girls in Jerusalem. Here, for the first time, talented, religious young women in Israel have an opportunity to seriously pursue their art within the framework of a Torah environment. The school has attained a nationwide reputation for excellence.
In 1992, Emunah launched a unique and outstanding program of academic and artistic excellence, the Torah and Arts High School. The high school pioneered an educational curriculum that offered arts education for talented girls within a Torah environment.
The school combines Judaic studies with a full academic program in the sciences and humanities, and a curriculum in the arts which encompass dance, film, music, theater and the visual arts. The educational goal is to produce well-rounded, forward-looking young women, who are sophisticated in their creativity and capable of contributing to the development of Jewish cultural expression within Israeli society.
