Tuition Assistance Program

This is an exciting year as Akiba and Yavneh have become one school.  We are pleased to announce that those enrolling and requesting Tuition Assistance will benefit from a newly streamlined and fully integrated process; each family will be asked to submit just one Tuition Assistance application for all students in Early Childhood through High School.

 

Please carefully read the information below which includes instructions and deadlines to apply. 

 

The price of tuition only covers the cost to educate your Akiba Yavneh student. Any shortfall in tuition revenue must be made up by generous donors. We ask that you carefully consider your financial prioritization, resources and spending, and use Tuition Assistance as a last resort. 

 

The Tuition Assistance dollars are precious and finite; therefore, it is vital for each applicant to treat this process with integrity.  

 

The Business Office has recently implemented a new accounting, enrollment and admissions software, which encompasses a new Tuition Assistance application, called “Smart Aid”. 

 

Please be reminded of the following policies and procedures:

 

    • Students will not be eligible to receive Tuition Assistance without a completed application, no exceptions.
    • Applications will be completed using the new online Smart Aid application.
      • Smart School ID: 14562
    • To receive aid, applications must be completed and submitted on or before February 4, 2020.
      • The Tuition Assistance budget will be set and distributed on a first to apply basis; late applications will not be eligible for assistance except in cases of unforeseen circumstances.
      • Our strict adherence to this policy is intended to support optimal financial management for our school.
    • Upload the most recent tax returns completed:
      • If you have not filed your 2019 tax returns, provide your 2018 tax returns.
      • If employed, upload your most recent paystub.
      • If employed, upload your most recent W-2 or Form 1099.

 

Detailed instructions for completing the application process can be found below (Smart Aid Application Guide.) If you need assistance with the application process, please contact Smart Aid at (888) 868-8828.
