A Commitment to Affordability

We understand that a Solomon Schechter Day School education is both an extraordinary gift for your child, and a significant investment for your family. We continually strive to balance affordability with the costs of implementing our outstanding educational program.

Our school provides convenient payment options for those who are able to pay Full Tuition (see tuition for Ginsburg ECC and Sager School (K-8) below). We also recognize that paying the full cost of a Schechter education is not possible for all families. We are proud to offer Flexible Tuition to Sager School families that is consistent with their financial means. 

2019-2020 Sager School (K-8) Tuition & Fees

  • K-4th Grade -- $24,200
  • 5-8th Grade -- $25,250
Sager Solomon Schechter Day School families also pay a family financial obligation of $1,200. Kosher hot lunch program, student transportation, and after school programs are available for additional fees.

Flexible Tuition

More than 61% of current Sager students – coming from families with a wide income range – benefit from Flexible Tuition. To apply, simply click here to reach Smart Aid, an independent, confidential resource. You will be asked to set up an account to begin the short application process. Please include our school code of 14023. Directions and additional assistance are available here.

Flexible Tuition is made possible through the generosity of our supporters, with special thanks to the Saffir Family, Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago, The Crown Family, and the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation Seventh Grade Scholarship Program.
