Tuition and Fees

for the 2024 – 2025 school year

We aim to make a Gross Schechter education accessible to all who wish to provide their children with an unparalleled Jewish day school experience. Thanks to the generosity of organizations, families and individuals, we are able to offer tuition rates at only 50% of the total cost of a Schechter education. We are grateful for the support we receive that enables so many families to access Schechter.

Tuition is set annually by the Board of Directors, and is posted on this site each January for the following academic year.
