Critical Minds, Compassionate Hearts
A Rashi education is an investment in your child's future.  Research has shown that the learning environment and the quality of teaching children receive during their elementary school years up through early adolescence are critical factors for long-term development and overall success.  At Rashi, experienced faculty guide their students and help them develop a strong sense of personal identity, the confidence to try new things, a commitment to social justice, and values that apply to every area of their lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Eligibility

List of 2 items.

  • How do I know if I am eligible for financial aid?

    The financial aid process looks at many different variables to determine eligibility. The process measures the Total Family Financial Capacity by looking at income (earned and unearned, taxed and untaxed), assets, extraordinary and unusual expenses in addition to many other factors, like the size of your family and the age of parents. The only way to know for certain if you qualify is to apply.
  • Who can apply for financial aid at Rashi?

    Any student enrolled at Rashi or applying for admission to Rashi may apply.

Factors Affecting Financial Aid

List of 6 items.

  • Does applying for financial aid affect admission?

    No, the financial aid process is separate from the admissions process and only the financial aid applications of admitted students are reviewed by the financial aid committee.
  • How does financial aid work for separated, divorced, or never-married parents?

    Both custodial and non-custodial parents must apply for financial aid. Applications may be entirely separate or completed jointly. The information is collected to determine the ability, not the willingness, of all parties to financially support the education of their children. The school considers the financial resources of all living parents, step-parents, and domestic partners, and
    requires the cooperation of all parties before financial aid awards are determined. No financial information will be viewable to another parent online, nor will the school share any financial information submitted by another parent.

    The school is not bound by any disclaimers of financial responsibility or legal arrangements that may bind either parent.

    The school does not act as an intermediary between parents and asks that all parties involved communicate directly with each other regarding the education of their children.
  • Is tuition for children at other schools considered in calculating financial aid?

    Yes. The school considers tuition commitments with other institutions from preschool through high school.
  • What happens if I don’t get my taxes in by deadline?

    A tax return is part of a fully complete application which is due February 8, 2019. Late applicants run the risk of being placed on a financial aid wait list. We will consider fully completed applications first.
  • What happens if I miss the deadline for filing my application?

    Late applicants run the risk of being placed on a financial aid wait list. We will consider fully completed applications first.
  • What happens if I put my tax return on an extension?

    If you file an application for extension of your filing, you will need to provide the extension application to the school along with W-2s and 1099s and a draft of your return. Depending on the completeness of the tax return, the school may make a provisional award. You will be required to provide the final filed tax return by October 31, 2019. There may be a revision to your award as a result.
