No family should be deterred from sending their child(ren) to Hillel because of the cost of tuition. Hillel Day School is committed to the principle that all families who wish to give their child(ren) a Jewish Day School education should be able to do so. An important hallmark of our school has been our ability to make the school financially accessible to all families who are doing their utmost and are still unable to handle paying the full cost of tuition. Thanks to the generous financial support funded by our annual fundraising campaigns, The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit, the Shiffman Family Day School Tuition Assistance Fund, the Goldman-Hermelin Education Fund, The Davidson Foundation, and an anonymous donor Hillel is able to offer tuition assistance to families who have incomes of up to approximately $220,000.
Families with one child in the school with incomes less than approximately $160,000 and families with two or more children in the school with incomes less than approximately $220,000 may qualify for tuition assistance.
Families are strongly encouraged to apply for financial assistance and begin the financial assistance process as soon as possible. While every family is expected to pay some portion of tuition, the school will provide assistance to all qualified families. Families must apply for financial aid online at the link below before January 31. Applying online expedites the process. Please know this process is completely confidential.
No financial assistance is available for the ECC. We do, however, offer subsidized rates for those families affiliated with a temple, synagogue, or shul.
To apply for tuition assistance, visit the FAST
website and complete an application as soon as possible, but in any event before January 31st
