Tuition and

Financial Aid

Each year we have conversations with prospective parents who say, “Oh, we cannot afford the Day School.” When we mention our generous tuition assistance program, they say, “Yes, but we assume we would not qualify for aid.” Often, these parents find they are mistaken.

Tuition is subsidized through Birmingham Jewish Federation allocations, the Birmingham Jewish Foundation, fundraisers, and the generosity of community-wide donations.
