Funding Your Child’s Education

Epstein Hillel School recognizes that the cost of independent school tuition is a significant investment in a child’s future. In an effort to make the school accessible to as many students as possible, the school offers a generous tuition assistance program, as well as payment plans. Using a professional third party vendor, FACTS, the school seeks guidance to assess a fair tuition assessment consistent with the needs of the family and the school’s budget.

To participate in the tuition assistance process, the school requires families to complete a FACTS application. Awards are determined on a need-based assessment. The school utilizes the reports generated by FACTS, along with additional information provided by the family, to determine a tuition assessment that is consistent with EHS tuition assistance policies.

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 below, and on our site under Funding Your Child’s Education.

Tuition for 2022-2023
    • Kindergarten – Grade 2………… $21,875
    • Grade 3 – Grade 5 …………………… $24,745

Tuition Assistance Information

Epstein Hillel School is offering several new affordability programs for the 2022-2023 school year. EHS recognizes that the cost of independent school tuition may seem out of reach for some families, and that every family situation is unique. We invite parents to explore this process with individualized support through our Business Office. 

  1. DISCOVER:  The Discover Program is available for kindergarten or first grade students entering EHS for the first time in 2022-2023. This grant program offers qualifying families a flat tuition rate of $13,000 for the first year. In subsequent years, families can apply for the Leap or Reach Programs. Eligible families must have a family adjusted gross income below $350,000 and need only submit their 2021 W2 form(s) and tax returns from 2020 to confirm their AGI. This incentive is intended to help our newest families afford an EHS education, while at the same time streamlining the overall financial aid process.

  2. LEAP: The Leap Program is available for all current and prospective students. This grant program offers qualifying families a flat tuition rate of $16,000 for each year with a maximum annual increase correlated with Board approved tuition increases in any year, until graduation. Eligible families must have a family adjusted gross income below $350,000 and need only submit their 2021 W2 form(s) and tax returns from 2020 to confirm their AGI. This tuition program will be guaranteed for the duration of your student(s)’ time at EHS as long as family AGI remains below the threshold. This incentive is for families who seek to lock in the cost of an EHS education up front, while at the same time streamlining the overall financial aid process.  

  3. REACH– The Reach Program is an annual grant which offsets the cost of tuition to make an EHS education within reach for all families. This program is for families who feel that the above two programs will not meet their needs. This program requires a more comprehensive evaluation of a family’s financial situation. Families may qualify for up to 80% tuition reduction. 

Tuition insurance is now being required for all families every year. Families that pay their student(s)’ tuition in full by September 1 are exempt from paying for the Tuition Refund Plan (2.7% of net tuition).

Technology and Activity Fee: With the rising cost of technology and educational platforms, EHS has implemented a $360 technology and activity fee per year, per student. This fee will be required regardless of financial aid programs.

Discounts are available for families with multiple children paying full tuition. 

Discounts are also available for full-time Jewish community workers.

 

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.
