Salem Academy Offers Admission to Female Students Enrolled at Recently Closed American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro

Friday, June 14, 2019

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (June 14, 2019) – Salem Academy has announced that it is offering admission to enrolled female students from the American Hebrew Academy (AHA) in Greensboro at the same financial agreement the students had with AHA. Earlier this week, AHA announced that it was closing effective immediately due to financial concerns.

“We were saddened to hear that the American Hebrew Academy has closed,” said Carol Killebrew, the Head of Salem Academy. “AHA was a highly respected partner among the Triad Independent Schools, and Salem Academy is committed to providing a superior education to the girls who had planned to enroll there in the Fall. I have been in contact with American Hebrew Academy administrators and have informed them that we are offering admission to their female students with the same financial agreement that was agreed upon prior to the AHA closing. Salem Academy looks forward to the opportunities afforded in both the classroom and in extra-curricular activities with these remarkable young women joining our community.”

AHA students and parents wishing to find out more about this offer should contact Carol Killebrew at (336) 917-5510 or carol.killebrew@salem.edu or Emily Demarest at 336-721-2643 or Emily.Demarest@salem.edu.

Founded in 1772, Salem Academy and College is the oldest educational institution for girls and women in the United States. Ranked among the best private high schools in the state of North Carolina, Salem Academy offers inspiring academics, holistic leadership development, and comprehensive college preparation. Salem is a welcoming and inclusive environment where girls discover their voice and explore where it can lead them in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

As the only day and boarding school in the Triad, Salem Academy has a diverse student body from around the world. In 2018-2019, students came from 10 countries and 9 states.

Small class sizes and low student-to-faculty ratios mean girls receive individualized attention and personalized academic experiences. Salem tuition includes dual-enrollment access, so students can earn college credit on the adjacent campus of Salem College. They can also choose from a variety of Advanced Placement classes in English, history, math, science, art, and world languages.

As usual, 100 percent of Salem Academy’s 2019 graduating class were accepted to college including numerous top tier schools. This year’s 38 graduates earned more than $5.6 million in college scholarships including two full academic scholarships: the NC State Park Scholarship and the Wake Forest University Stamps Scholarship.
