It was known for its emphasis on regional studies and literature, and for its secular religious studies courses. The school served students from was over the world, and especially homeschoolers.

Academics[edit]

Starting in 2015, the curriculum is titled "World Civilisations" and is composed of 3 years of study (9 semesters of 14 weeks). The curriculum requires students to take a workshop in Critical Thinking, introductory classes in religion and social sciences, a reading workshop in social inequalities, and a foreign language class before joining the full programme. After completing the preparatory semester, the students move to the next phase: the Combined Core Programme in World Civilisations.

The new core programme includes 108 semester hours taken over 2 years (16 semester hours per semester).

Disabilities office[edit]

Harari College Worldwide has launched in February 2013 a centre to make their entire course catalog accessible for various types of disabilities, ranging from audio disabilities to autism. In June 2014 they are expected to submit autistic, blind and deaf students to the Israeli Bagrut exam.

Beyond the Screen[edit]

In 2014 the students and staff of Harari College Worldwide met in Berlin for a 7-day seminar of travel and intensive studies. The students arrived from all over the world to meet the people that they are spending a lot of time studying with but never met them in person. The seminar was a success thus became a Harari tradition. In 2015 the seminar was planned to take place in Madrid, but was canceled in favor of a trip around Eastern Europe in 2016, although this remains unconfirmed.
