Financial aid is determined each year based on the number of applicants and available funds. The goal of the program is to close the gap between the total cost of a Perelman education and what a family can afford. Each application is carefully reviewed and considered based on needs and circumstances. Applications for Financial Aid must be made through FACTS Management, our third party Tuition Assistance management provider and can be accessed here.
EITC: As part of the financial aid process, families may qualify to have their financial aid funded through the Educational Improvement Tax Credit / Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (EITC/OSTC) tuition assistance program, managed by the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools. Qualifying families may be asked to submit additional documentation.
The Perelman Jewish Day School Affordability Program offers fixed scholarships based on the number of children families have enrolled at Perelman for families with incomes between $175,000 - $350,000. These scholarships are in effect for every year your child or children are at Perelman, from Ganon to Grade 5, making it easier to plan what your tuition costs will be in the future as your family grows.
The Tuition Affordability Grid shows the amount of the grant you would receive based on the number of children that your family enrolls each year.
Applications for the Tuition Affordability Program must be made through FACTS Management, our third party Tuition Assistance management provider, and can be accessed here.
Thanks to the generosity and philanthropic vision of Sandy and Steve Cozen, the Cozen Scholars Program offers a $5,000 incentive to new families during their first year that they enroll their children at Perelman. Qualifying families are those whose total income is between $175,000-$350,000 and are new to the school.
