Every Jewish Child is Entitled to a Jewish Education
We have been blessed with a fantastic first half of our 2008-2009 school year. Our students� academic progress continues to skyrocket. Our quarterly academic assessments are up 137%, on average, when compared to surrounding school districts. Plus, the campus is abuzz with positive spirit and camaraderie.
At CHA, we believe strongly in our commitment to educate our children for a better future. This is truly the greatest gift we can give as parents.
We are proud to open the 2009-2010 CHA academic year priority enrollment by committing to continued academic excellence and growth in our educational program.
As we have been preparing for re-enrollment season, we have been working diligently with our school board and administration on one particular question. How can we best assist our families in obtaining a top quality CHA education amid the financial difficulties we each face during these tough times?
No family should feel embarrassed to request tuition assistance at CHA. The process is anonymous and fully confidential. All families are treated equally and with dignity. Those who legitimately need assistance will receive priority access to financial aid funds while funds last. It is our schools mission to provide a meaningful Jewish foundation and a superb education for every Jewish child regardless of financial ability.
The Chabad Hebrew Academy has a Financial Aid Program to ensure that all students have the benefit of a Jewish private school education. We are pleased to offer our re-enrolling families currently benefiting from CHA�s Tuition Assistance Program a guaranteed comparable grant to that of this past year. To qualify, one must submit the completed PSAS form and complete the enrollment requirements. Verification by PSAS of comparable need to that of last year is required to receive guaranteed comparable funds. After the February 7th Tuition Assistance Enrollment Deadline, any remaining tuition assistance program funds will be made available to the public on a first come first serve basis.
The program uses defined guidelines to make grants on an equitable basis to qualified families. The guidelines take into consideration the family's income and available net assets. The program operates on the principal that families with the same number of children in the School and similar levels of income should receive the same level of financial assistance. Special consideration may be given to unusual circumstances such as special needs of children, unusual medical expenses, care of elderly parents, and other unique situations.
Financial Aid is granted on an annual basis. Applications are routinely provided to families currently receiving assistance. Families applying for the first time may obtain an application by calling the Business Office or downloading a form below.
The School's Financial Aid Committee oversees the School's Financial Aid Program. All applications and financial information are handled with high standards of confidentiality. Confidentiality on the part of both the School and the parents is a key element of the program.
