Tuition Grant Program*:
Hillel is offering a grant that lowers the effective cost of tuition each year of your child’s enrollment. Thanks to the extraordinary support of an anonymous donor, all entering first graders are eligible to receive $36,000 in credit towards their child’s 8 years of tuition: $1,000 in credit that grows by an additional $1,000 for each year of enrollment. That’s an $8,000 tuition credit by eighth grade! And not just newly enrolled students benefit: all currently enrolled students and new lateral entry students are eligible to receive a $1,000 credit against the cost of tuition next year, with an additional $1,000 credit earned for each year of enrollment through 8th grade. For a newly enrolled 1st grade student, the total annual tuition you’ll pay through graduation will actually decrease over 8 years as a result of this grant.

There’s no income test to participate in this program. For families that need more significant support to make Hillel Day School affordable, our current sliding-scale flexible tuition assistance program will still provide generous subsidies.

Financial Assistance
Hillel Day School is committed to the principle that all qualifying families who wish to give their child(ren) a Jewish Day School education should be able to do so.  While the primary responsibility for a child’s education rests with the family, an important hallmark of our school has been our ability to make the school financially accessible to 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, and the Goldman-Hermelin Education Fund, Hillel may be able to offer tuition assistance to families who have incomes up to $220,000.

Families with one child in the school with incomes less than $160,000 and families with two or more children in the school with incomes less than $220,000 may qualify for tuition assistance.

Those families in need 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 qualified families.  Families must apply for financial aid online at the link below.  Applying online expedites the process.  Please know this process is completely confidential.
No financial assistance is available for the ECC.  We do 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.

Thank you for your interest.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
