Tuition Assistance & the Preschool Jewish Continuity Scholarship

You CAN afford to give your child a Jewish education
at Soille Hebrew Day School

The leadership of our school remains committed to ensuring that the Jewish education at Soille Hebrew Day School is available to every Jewish child, regardless of their family’s economic standing. We recognize that some families will need Tuition Assistance or a Scholarship to bring tuition within their means. Therefore, we are grateful to our many donors who make it possible for us to offer Tuition Assistance to qualifying day school families and the Preschool Jewish Continuity Scholarship to qualifying preschool families. 

We take great care to ensure that our Tuition Assistance/Scholarship application process is completely confidential. The Finance Committee is comprised of discreet Board members and volunteers whose decisions are not shared with anyone outside of the committee. The Finance Committee makes a concerted effort to responsibly evaluate each Tuition Assistance/ Scholarship application and allocate the limited funds in an equitable manner.

Tuition Assistance
Tuition Assistance is available to qualifying day school families, who have at least one child in our day school (K-8th), and are able to establish 
financial need through our Tuition Assistance/Scholarship application process (outlined below).

Preschool Jewish Continuity Scholarship
Our donors have established the
Preschool Jewish Continuity Scholarship to assist qualifying preschool families, whose oldest child is of preschool age (6 weeks-5 years), are able to establish financial need through our Tuition Assistance/Scholarship application process (outlined below) AND are committed to keeping their child(ren) at Soille Hebrew Day school through at least 1st grade.

TUITION ASSISTANCE AND SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED ONCE THE FAMILY HAS APPLIED FOR ADMISSION OR RE-REGISTRATION AND PAID THEIR TUITION DEPOSIT.
