FINANCIAL AID - KINDERGARTEN - 8TH GRADE
Financing a Jewish school education is a major investment in a child's future. We are committed to supplementing families who demonstrate a financial need.
The actual cost of educating each student exceeds the cost of our tuition and fees, every Akiba student, in effect, receives aid — the difference between the tuition and fees and the actual cost of an Akiba education.
Our substantial financial aid budget comes entirely from families who pay the full price of tuition. We award financial aid to many middle-income families, families with more than one child in school, and those whose financial circumstances qualify them for a greater assistance. Even if you are not sure you would qualify for financial aid, we encourage you to apply.
Applying for financial aid has absolutely no effect on a student’s application for admission. Admission decisions are based on a student’s qualifications and the likelihood that he/she will contribute to the life of the school.
Families apply for Financial Aid by going to the SSS website (sss.force.com/familyportal). The application must be completed by February 5, 2017. Your 2016 tax returns (including all schedules) and W-2/1099 must be uploaded into the SSS website by March 5, 2017. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Financial Aid is unavailable for the Early Childhood Program students. If a family needs assistance for their Early Childhood Program student they may apply for a Jewish Education Incentive (JEI) discount. You can find more information here.
