Financial Assistance – Help When You Need It

We recognize that paying for a day school education can be challenging and we want to help families meet that challenge. David Posnack Jewish Day School is committed to educating Jewish children regardless of a family’s ability to pay the full cost of tuition. The application details the required information you should gather and have available as you enter information into the financial aid application. A processing fee of $50 will be paid directly to school. Once your application is complete, David Posnack Jewish Day School’s Financial Aid Committee will review the family financial information provided by you and then determine a financial aid award. David Posnack Jewish Day School provides financial aid on the basis of demonstrated financial need and availability of funds without regard to race, ethnic origin, or disability. All application forms, tax information, and other related paperwork is held in the strictest confidence. We feel that the success of our financial aid program depends on the confidentiality of financial information. We also expect that families will keep their financial award confidential. Awards may be withdrawn for failure to comply with this request. To begin the Financial Assistance process, please follow the instructions below.
