High School

The Judaic curriculum at TTI can be capsulized in two words ? Mussar and Iyun. Mussar, the code of Jewish ethics and morals, is the foundation for true Jewish growth ? to adopt the Torah not just as a book of law, but as a way of life. To emulate the attributes of Hashem ? kindness, morality, honesty ? and to absorb them into the fiber of our beings ? this is mussar. Iyun is the rigorous in-depth analysis of the Torah. Each student must develop his own critical thinking skills, learn how to dissect a problem, to attack it from every angle until clarity is achieved. A Gemara shiur is not just a dry lecture, but an interactive experience.

All of the Judaic courses are designed to gives the students a full breadth of knowledge and understanding of Torah. Among the topics covered are Halacha, Mussar, Gemara B?iyun, Bekius, Chumash, Hashkafa, and the weekly parsha. The curriculum is taught at various levels to accommodate the varied needs and capabilities of the students. Additionally, all students are required to attend weekly ethical discourses (shmuezin) focusing on character development, psychology, relationships and human nature, all based on Torah sources and texts, with practical applications for daily life.

The General Studies curriculum at TTI is outstanding, uncompromising and very well respected by both parents and educators alike. The TTI administration, under the guidance of Mr. Fred Wagner, M.Ed, our Academic Dean, has assembled an exemplary staff of caring, experienced and motivated teachers who are dedicated to helping our young men achieve their academic goals.

The comprehensive, fully accredited curriculum covers all required high school subjects with a minimum requirement of an ?honors? level diploma by TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) standards. State-of-the-art computer and science labs complement the curriculum for hands on learning, and special attention is given to preparation for PSAT and SAT exams in both English and math. Additionally, dual enrollment college credit courses are offered in conjunction with Texas Tech University and Richland Community College.

The TTI high school experience is greatly enhanced by extracurricular activities and programming, varsity and JV Basketball teams, field trips, Shabbatonim and guest lectures. Our athletic program plays a particularly crucial role in the boys? development from both a physical/health-related standpoint and an emotional/psychological one.


Beis Medrash

One of the highlights of TTI, and a true asset to our high school, is our Beis Medrash Program. This group of post-high school students pursue their full time Torah study in our Bais Medrash, providing some of the highest-level Torah and Jewish textual learning in the Southwestern United States. Additionally, both directly and indirectly, they serve as mature mentors, tutors, counselors and role models to our high school students, providing guidance and friendship that is so crucial in these developmental years. The Bais Medrash students learn Gemara for three sedorim a day, in addition to Halacha, Mussar, and Shemiras Haloshon sedorim and two weekly mussar shmuezin.


Community Enrichment Program

TTI provides community programming, classes, and one-on-one study sessions to anyone who wants to study Torah. Our Beis Medrash students run study sessions for the community one evening a week, and the rabbinic staff give classes and workshops. Currently, TTI staff members provide community Torah learning opportunities every day of the week. Through this programming, the Yeshiva has established itself as a focal point for Torah study and Jewish growth for adults.
