WDS offers an income-based tuition cap program. We are very proud of this program, which has allowed about 70% of WDS families who receive tuition assistance to do so in a streamlined manner without completing a scholarship application. The only required documentation is a Form 1040. Since we implemented this program in 2019, Jewish day schools around the country have reached out to us for assistance setting up similar programs. For families that require greater assistance, we also offer a traditional scholarship application process.
If your adjusted gross income (AGI) is $250,000 or less, you pay a flat, all-inclusive fee for each enrolled child, according to the following schedule.
Ganon (Tot's tastic, 3's and 4's)
2nd & 3rd Grade
4th & 5th Grade
6th, 7th & 8th Grade
If your AGI is over $250,000, our proven formula caps your total day school tuition obligation as a percentage of your AGI (up to a 40% discount) We take into account high school tuitions as well, and your obligation to WDS is a pro rata share of the capped amount. Use our online tuition calculator to determine your WDS obligation based on your AGI, the grades of your children enrolled at WDS, and any yeshiva high school obligations you have.
The reductions are subject to review and confirmation by WDS’s Executive Director and/or Scholarship Committee. Absent an unusual circumstance, the obligation is confirmed promptly, usually within a day or two.
There is no separate security fee for those with AGI of $250,000 or less. The tuition schedule in this income range is all-inclusive. There is a $1,250 per family security fee for those with AGI over $250,000.
