Some examples of circumstances that impact the tuition assistance decision include:

  • Additional children in preschool or other Jewish day schools
  • Significant, unreimbursed medical expenses or special needs support costs
  • Eldercare responsibilities
  • Change in income or employment status
  • Significant savings, investment properties, or trust funds
  • Parents who have chosen not to work (and are neither disabled nor caring for small children or other dependents)
  • Receiving significant gifts or support from relatives or others

The tuition assistance program was not designed to underwrite:

  • Cost of Senior Trip (Separate assistance is available for the trip)
  • Lifestyle choices that make paying tuition difficult, like homes, cars, vacations, and summer camps that are above standard allowances
  • College costs (in limited circumstances, certain factors may be included in the decision)

We welcome conversations with current and prospective parents about their unique financial situations. Please contact to schedule a phone call or personal meeting.
