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.

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.
