Donna Klein Jewish Academy is committed to serving Jewish families from all economic backgrounds.

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for Donna Klein Jewish Academy for the upcoming 2019-20 academic year. 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. It is important that tuition assistance applicants and recipients maintain that confidentiality as well. Discussion of tuition assistance status may result in revocation of tuition assistance award.

Families applying for tuition assistance will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Applicants can apply online at As tuition assistance is awarded on a fund available basis, it is recommended to submit all documentation when it becomes available to you.

All families applying for tuition assistance must first determine whether their household income qualifies them for Step Up For Students, a scholarship program created to help families whose educational choices are limited by household income. Families who qualify for Step Up For Students, must apply for a Step Up For Students scholarship in addition to tuition assistance.
