Tuition and Financial Aid

שכר הלימוד

We are committed to maintaining an affordable tuition schedule. However, like most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of educating each child, and therefore we close this gap with annual contributions from friends and outside foundations. Please do not hesitate to apply if affordability is your biggest concern. Hannah Senesh provides tuition assistance to more than 50% of our students.

Tuition Schedule 

Tuition for Kindergarten through 8th grade is $38,200 (School Year 2022-23)

Additional fees:

  • Materials and trip fee of $500 per student in K-4 grades (this includes the cost of books, field trips and classroom material).
  • There is an additional cost for overnight trips, which take place in the Middle School.
  • Scholarship Fund Gift of $1000 per student. This is acknowledged as a charitable donation to the school.
  • Optional after school and lunch programs are not included in tuition and costs extra.

Tuition Payment Options:

Plan A- A nonrefundable tuition deposit is returned to the school with the contract. The remaining balance is paid on May 1.

Plan B- A nonrefundable tuition deposit is returned to the school with the contract. 50% of what is owed after the deposit payment is due on May 1, the remaining 50% is due on November 1. The remaining payments are done through Smart Tuition.

Plan C- A nonrefundable tuition deposit is returned to the school with the contract. 10 equal payments which are each 10% of what is owed after the deposit is made are made through Smart Tuition from May 1 through February 1.

Payment plans are available. Further information will be provided to you during the enrollment process.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance is available for students from Kindergarten through the 8th grade and is granted on the basis of need, consistent with the school’s commitment to diversity.  Admissions decisions and financial aid decisions are made independently. Due to limited funds, an acceptance by the Admissions Office does not guarantee an award even if need is demonstrated.

The School utilizes the services of TADS to process Tuition Assistance or Financial Aid. Apply for Tuition Assistance by creating an account in TADS and clicking on Financial Aid Assessment. If you are applying for financial aid for the 2022-23 school year, applications for current Senesh families were due on December 3. Tuition Assistance applications for new applicant families were due  January 2. We will continue taking applications for families that apply late as long as funds are available.

We will notify you of any financial aid determinations in the school contract. If you have questions, please email tuitionassistance@hannahsenesh.org.
