Tuition and Financial Assistance

 

Tuition for the 2017-2018 academic school year is $20,000. Additional fees may be applied for activities. This fee does not include the cost of transportation, books and activities. Please call JHSC to find out more about our Grant Incentive for Tuition.

Financial Assistance

In the spirit of the Jewish tradition, JHSC seeks to help parents and students fulfill their desire for Talmud Torah (learning and teaching) through a process that reflects the highest possible levels of discretion, confidentiality and sensitivity. When family financial circumstances might prevent students from attending the Jewish High School of Connecticut (JHSC), families are strongly encouraged to apply for tuition assistance. When making admissions decisions, JHSC does not consider a family’s ability to pay. A student must earn admission to JHSC in order to receive tuition assistance.

JHSC strongly recommends that you submit your request as early as possible since tuition assistance will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Tuition assistance will be considered for late applicants only if funds are still available.

How to request Tuition Assistance at JHSC

Requests for tuition assistance at JHSC will be made online through FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) administered by Independent Schools Management (ISM), one of the leading support organizations for private schools in the United States. FAST provides an easy and accessible online process for applying for tuition assistance along with 24/7 customer support. To access the online tuition assistance form, click here. Should you have any questions, please call 203.357.0850 or send an email to admissions@jhsct.org.

Tuition assistance will be considered and awarded on the basis of the parents’ personal financial statements and the Report of Family Contribution as produced from FAST.  All tuition assistance awards are based on a review by the Tuition Assistance Committee.  Requests for tuition assistance will be considered once a student submits a complete application for admission and the family completes the JHSC request for tuition assistance administered through FAST.  Tuition assistance will be considered for late applicants only after JHSC considers all requests received by the priority deadlines and if funds are still available.

JHSC will strive to consider requests for tuition assistance and make awards consistent with the best practices of the National Association of Independent Schools. After the JHSC considers and processes a request for tuition assistance, a tuition counselor from the staff at JHSC will personally contact each family with a response. The goal at JHSC is to handle requests for tuition assistance with the highest level of confidentiality, efficiency and sensitivity.
