As the product of a (non-boarding) prep school education, I’ve always been fascinated by the American Hebrew Academy’s experiment (“A Visit To The ‘Jewish Exeter’” Between The Lines, Dec. 7). I fully respect their vision and believe it a fully worthwhile effort.

Somehow, however, I always end up feeling that if it were closer to the northeast, it would be more successful in attracting students. Perhaps New Jersey and New York parents would have less trepidation at sending their Sammys and Mayas to Connecticut or Western Massachusetts than to Greensboro, N.C.

While I respect your opinion.... perhaps it is BECAUSE it is farther from the "Jewish Northeast" that it works so well!
It is not competing with a huge Jewish Community, but complementing the small, hamish Jewish community of Greensboro, NC.
Beautiful surroundings (warm), multiple varieties of worship, Jewish studies, Hebrew, college-prep classes (of all types), great student/teacher ratio, high-tech classrooms -- WIN, WIN!
