As a Jewish school we believe strongly that every Jewish child deserves an excellent Jewish education. We do our utmost to provide tuition assistance for qualified families, while also recognizing that lost tuition revenue dramatically impacts our budget and increases our fundraising needs. We value all of our families and our students regardless of their ability to pay. The tuition assistance process is built on mutual trust and an understanding that we all are committed to our children and our school.
Denver Academy of Torah typically allocates approximately $700,000/per year to be awarded to families in need. Funds from the DAT Tuition Assistance Program are distributed only to families that truly qualify for assistance, as every dollar we give to families in need must be raised dollar-for-dollar from generous donors.
Award sizes vary based on family need and extenuating circumstances.
Here are some additional details about minimums for families requiring the greatest amount of assistance:
The tuition minimum is $2,000 per student per year per student in addition to applicable fees.
The tuition minimum is $3,000 per student per year in addition to applicable fees.
The tuition minimum is $5,500 per student per year in addition to applicable fees.
Awards are granted through a methodical, transparent, and systematic process that takes into consideration each family’s specific financial circumstances. Tuition awards at the maximum level are extremely limited and are only awarded to families demonstrating the greatest level of need (i.e., typically those qualifying for the free or reduced lunch poverty standard).
