Considering How to Apply for Help with Tuition?

We have an exciting new financial accessibility option:­ Open Door.
Open Door offers your family the opportunity to easily determine your per student tuition based on your adjusted gross income and number of children attending a tuition-based Jewish school. If you like the results from this process, there is no need to complete the longer application for traditional financial aid. We invite you to learn more about eligibility and how the plan works.

Traditional Financial Aid works for many families to determine their tuition costs for all children in schools that charge tuition.

Whether this is your first application or your ninth, we encourage you to get started. Please go to to begin your application for the 2019-2020 school year. Getting started is the key to a smooth process. The deadline to submit your application is February 8. The deadline to upload your 2017 and 2018 taxes is February 25.

Both programs:

Each accessibility program makes an allowance for some portion of membership dues to a temple, havurah, or independent minyan, Jewish summer camp, and fees in the year of B'nei Mitzvah. Please note them on your application.

Families awarded traditional financial aid through SSS or the Open Door tuition option may receive up to 50% in additional aid for after school, transportation, middle school trip fees, and certain other incidentals. Details will be included in your award.
