A nonrefundable application fee of $100 per student must be submitted along with the application for new students. A $500 per family non-refundable deposit will be required for returning students. This payment will be applied toward the student's tuition charges. For returning families receiving tuition assistance, a deposit of 10% of the student's tuition will be required, not to exceed $500.
A $400 per student facility fee will be charged to all students in K-8th grade. A $450 security fee is assessed for all students K-12. Please note that tuition assistance may not be applied toward these per student fees.
All incoming 9th graders will have an additional $600 Israel immersion fee. The fee can either be paid out in full during the student's first year or payable over four years ($150 a year.) If a student withdraws, this fee must be paid in full.
As a Jewish school we believe strongly that every Jewish child deserves an excellent Jewish education. We do our utmost to provide tuition assistance for qualified families in need while recognizing that lost tuition revenue dramatically impacts our budget and increases our fundraising needs. Funds from the DAT Tuition Assistance Program are distributed only to families that truly qualify for assistance, as every dollar we give to families in need must be raised dollar-for-dollar through fundraising from generous donors. Therefore, Tuition Assistance is awarded only after thoughtful and meaningful examination of each family’s specific financial circumstances.
All families receiving tuition assistance will be required to volunteer at the school in a way that is substantial and substantive. Tuition assistance is preferentially provided to families who demonstrate that our school is a valued priority as reflected by volunteerism and a positive attitude about the school. Volunteer opportunities include activities within the classroom or front office, coordinating CVA programs, or volunteering for our Annual Dinner. We have multiple opportunities for parents who work as well as those with daytime availability.
Award sizes vary based on family need and extenuating circumstances. Families requiring the greatest amount of assistance must pay a minimum of $1,620 per child for K through 5th grade in addition to fees. The tuition minimum for students in 6th- 8th grade is $2,500 per student in addition to fees. The tuition minimum for 9th-12th grade is $5,000 per student per year in addition to fees. Tuition awards at this level are extremely limited and are only awarded to families demonstrating the greatest level of need.
