The planned expansion program will include a Rambam Torah Institute, with a four-year high school curriculum; and provision to make the West Coast Division a fully accredited college, granting Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees, in addition to Bachelor of Hebrew Letters and Bachelor of Religious Education for completion of Hebraic and religious studies.
