Tuition is set by the Board of Directors annually and is based on the cost of educating a child. If full tuition is a barrier for your family, we encourage you to explore our Flexible Tuition Program.
Flexible Tuition: A Customized Approach
Flexible Tuition is a robust and innovative program that allows families to pay for their child’s education based on their financial ability. More than 75% of our students, from families with a wide range of income, benefit from Flexible Tuition.
How is Flexible Tuition determined?
We consider your family’s full financial picture with the help of an independent third party. Factors include family size, adjusted gross income, existing child care costs, and other family expenses.
Sager Solomon Schechter Day School (K-8) families also pay a per family fee of $1,200 each year. A Kosher hot lunch, student transportation, afterschool programs, and other activities are also available.
Flexible Tuition is made possible through the generosity of our supporters, with special thanks to the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago, The Saffir Family, The Crown Family, The Etta Jonas Scholarship Endowment, the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation, The Jordan A. Feldman Scholarship Fund, Big Shoulders, and Empower Illinois.
