Tuition & Affordability

The cost of tuition and fees are carefully considered so we can provide students with the highest quality educational program. We work hard to attract and retain the best faculty for our school, and to implement best practices across all curriculums. Our graduates, parents and current students know a Jewish education is a gift of a lifetime that provides priceless and life-changing returns.

This chart reflects need-based scholarships/grants that students in grades 1-8 are eligible to receive to assist with the cost of tuition. Some of our students receive additional external assistance. While the cost of a Jewish Day School can seem overwhelming, the average family at Torah Academy pay $100/mo per child towards tuition (excludes fees).
