Funding Your Child’s Education

Epstein Hillel School is committed to making an exceptional Jewish independent school education accessible to as many families as possible.

In recognition that funding an independent school education can be challenging for many families, a variety of tuition assistance options are available to make this opportunity attainable for your children.

The CJP Discover Day School (DDS) Program

The CJP Discover Day School (DDS) Program is available for K-8 students entering a Jewish day school for the first time. Only the first child in a family to attend a Jewish day school is eligible. This grant program offers qualifying families the lesser of $6,000 or 25% of day school tuition per year for up to three years. DDS is administered by Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and is subject to its eligibility requirements. Eligible families must have a family adjusted gross income between $100,000 and $299,000. Visit discoverdayschool.org for more information and eligibility.

Discover Epstein Hillel School (DEHS)

Discover Epstein Hillel School (DEHS) is available for families participating in the DDS program with a second child attending Epstein Hillel. Eligible families may qualify for a grant of 25% of tuition up to $6,000 per year for their second child, for an award period of up to three years. DEHS grant recipients will be notified in April, coinciding with DDS notification period.

The Needs-Based Assistance Program

The Needs-Based Assistance Program is an annual grant program for families who cannot meet the full tuition obligation. The needs-based grant application process is managed by a confidential online third-party, FACTS.

As part of the tuition assistance process, the school requires families to complete the tuition assistance application through FACTS. The school utilizes the reports from FACTS along with any additional information provided by the family to determine the amount of the tuition assistance award.  

Returning families must be current in their tuition obligation to apply for the next year’s tuition assistance. Tuition assistance applications, including all required tax documents, must be completed within the designated timeline that is found on our site under Funding Your Child’s Education.
