STUDENTS RECEIVE FINANCIAL AID

You may be thinking, “we aren’t the right fit for financial aid” or “I think I make too much to qualify.” The fact is, your family may be eligible for assistance through our Traditional Financial Aid process or Clergy Incentive. Rashi Director of Finance & Operations Barbara Burnim Day would be pleased to speak with you about affordability options.

It is during the Kindergarten through Grade 8 years that children develop the foundational academic preparation, critical thinking skills, social-emotional intelligence, intrinsic values, and relationship with Judaism that will determine their success not only in their next schools but as individuals and members of society. Choosing Rashi now means a lifetime of benefits.

Financial Aid Options

The Rashi School has one of the most generous financial aid programs in the country. Cost of living, temple membership, Jewish summer camp, and family expenses during the b’nei mitzvah year are just a few of the factors that are taken into consideration when calculating your aid package.
