Boys Town Jerusalem is a residential school, known locally as Kiryat Noar based in Bayit Vegan Jerusalem, encompassing grades 7-12 (age 12-18) and a two-year College of Applied Engineering. More than 75% of the students come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and the vast majority require financial assistance in order to receive a first-class secular education, broad Jewish curriculum, full residential boarding facilities, three freshly-prepared meals each day, dedicated counselling & special needs services, one-to-one tutoring support, & extra-curricular programme and communal activities.
Boys Town Jerusalem has transformed the lives of thousands of young Israelis, giving them and the State of Israel a brighter future. Today, 950 boys attend this remarkable school. Academic results for the school significantly exceed the national average, with a 90% pass rate in Israel’s Bagrut exams compared to the national average of 66%.
Our charity, British Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem raises money, within the UK, to support the school. The charity has 2 employees (1 full-time, 1 part-time), and raised a total income of £300k in the last financial year.
