Interested in studying at the Kinneret Academic College?
Walking around our gorgeous campus, situated on the southern shore of the Sea of Galilee, one sees three main buildings:
The Alperin Family Building, constructed in October 1974, was originally a two-story building with a third story added in August 1990. It currently houses classrooms, a small auditorium (220 people capacity) and most of the college administration offices. The building is named after the Alperin Family of Rhode Island, USA.
The Triguboff Building above was built in 1998 as the Science and Technology Center. It features 3,700 square meters and houses most of the computer laboratories, the engineering labs, the science labs, the Communication Arts Center and the present cafeteria. The building is named after Harry Triguboff of Australia.
The Robert and Yadelle Sklare Family Library opened in October 2010. This state-of-the-art facility of more than 2,700 square meters houses 130 computer work stations, space for 200,000 books in open stacks, seminar rooms, multimedia rooms and a niche area for study. The library also serves as a valuable resource for the neighboring communities in the Jordan Valley and Beit Shean. The building is named after the Sklare Family of Chicago, USA.
Prospective and current students at the college are invited to apply for one of the many scholarships offered through our Dean of Students office. The scholarships and grants are provided from the college’s own finances and from external sources such as the Jewish Agency and the Partnership 2000 Program, the Rashi and “Shutafim La’Chinuch” Foundations, and many more.
Once awarded a scholarship, all recipients are required to fulfill community service hours in the region. These include coaching young children from disadvantaged circumstances during their school years, operating leisure activities for youth at high risk (from drug-taking to criminal abuse), and highly-praised programs for volunteer work in prisons, hospitals and mental institutions.
