Families Awarded Grants Will Pay Tuition of Only $15K Per Year for Three Years

Jewish families with girls and non-binary/gender nonconforming children who are in second grade this year and will enter third grade in the fall of 2021 have a unique educational opportunity—the chance to send their child to Hannah Senesh Community Day School at a significant discount on tuition. 

A grant has been established to create equitable gender representation for the class of 2027. Decisions about these grants will be made by the financial aid committee and will be granted based on all facts and circumstances. Families who receive the grant will only pay $15,000 per year in tuition for the next three years.

Hannah Senesh provides an incredible educational experience with supportive teachers, small classes, and a warm, welcoming community of parents. Senesh is a highly respected Jewish day school that values gender equality in all areas of religious and secular education.
