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 and a $450 per student security fee will be charged to all students in K-12th grade. In addition, there is a $150 activity fee for students in K-12. Please note that tuition assistance may not be applied toward these per-student fees.

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. We value all of our families and our students regardless of ability to pay. The tuition assistance process is built on mutual trust and an understanding that we all are committed to our children and our school.
The Board of Trustees of the Denver Academy of Torah has allocated a maximum of $750,000 to be awarded to families in need. 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 from generous donors.
Tuition Assistance is granted through a methodical, transparent and systematic process taking into consideration each family’s specific financial circumstances. Award sizes vary based on family need and extenuating circumstances. Families requiring the greatest amount of assistance must pay a minimum of $1,670 per child for K through 5th grade in addition to fees. The tuition minimum for students in 6th- 8th grade is $2,575 per student in addition to fees. The tuition minimum for 9th-12th grade is $5,150 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, typically qualifying for the free or reduced lunch poverty standard.
