Donna Klein Jewish Academy is committed to serving Jewish families from all economic backgrounds.  Families applying for tuition assistance will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. The Enrollment Contract and reservation deposit must be submitted in order for your tuition assistance application to be considered. Applicants can apply online at www.factstuitionaid.com. As tuition assistance is awarded on a fund available basis, it is recommended to submit all documentation when it becomes available to you.
 
DKJA considers the FACTS recommendation in addition to overall need and our overall tuition assistance budget when determining awards. All tuition assistance requests are treated with the utmost confidentiality. Discussion of tuition assistance status may result in revocation of tuition assistance award.

The Enrollment Contract and reservation deposit must be submitted in order for your tuition assistance application to be considered. Notification of a tuition assistance award will be sent at a later date. You will then have ten (10) days from the date of the award notification letter to decline your tuition assistance amount. If you decide to withdraw at that time, you will not forfeit the reservation deposit provided your cancellation/withdrawal is emailed to businessoffice@dkja.net and is received within the ten (10) days of the acceptance period. To be eligible for this option, you must have completed the portion in section two (2) of the Tuition Assistance Application that requests the estimated amount you can pay toward your child’s tuition.
