The CBS Religious School Experience produces spiritually and socially aware young people who leave better prepared to take on the challenges and responsibilities of a Jewish life, both here in the United States or in Israel. Although CBS is considered to be on the smaller scale in terms of actual size, the impact that our graduates have made has typically far exceeded their numbers. Members of CBS USY regularly hold Far West Regional Leadership positions. And many of our graduates have gone on to counselor positions at Jewish Summer Camps like Camp Ramah in Ojai and Alonim in Simi Valley.
Several of our students have served in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) in support and combat roles. Our record for college acceptances finds many CBS religious School graduates starting their freshman year at prestigious universities around the country including Northwestern, UCLA, University of Arizona and others.
Some of our grads choose a year of maturation and adventure after High School. Gap Year programs in Israel such as Nativ, Seminary, and Yeshiva allow students to continue their Jewish experience, an extension of the education they received at CBS.
