Affording BT

A Beth Tfiloh education is an investment in your child’s success, and our community’s future.
We are committed to providing a rigorous, inclusive Jewish day school education to as many students as possible. Our student body comprises academically qualified students from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds, regardless of their family’s economic circumstances.

The tuition and fees charged for each student cover less than 80 percent of the actual annual cost of a Beth Tfiloh education. The remaining funds are provided thanks to the generous philanthropic support of our school parents and other community members.

Our Commitment

Generous financial assistance is available, making a Beth Tfiloh Dahan education affordable for a broad range of families. Our financial assistance application process is strictly confidential and user-friendly, and takes into account the unique personal circumstances of each family applying for assistance to make the experience as comfortable and transparent as possible. To ensure that our students can complete their studies at Beth Tfiloh, financial aid is renewable each year, and typically allocated at a similar level to the previous year, unless there is a significant change in financial circumstances.

    To help our families meet their financial obligations, Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School uses the services of FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Program for financial aid (grades K-12). FACTS Management provides private schools with financial aid assessment via a secure web-based interface.  FACTS collects all the necessary data from families who apply for financial aid for the individual schools to review to make award decisions.  
    FACTS will conduct the financial need analysis for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. To ensure receiving a decision about your grant by Friday, February 22, 2022 with your child/ren’s admission decision(s), families new to Beth Tfiloh will need to complete a FACTS application and submit the necessary supporting documentation, by January 21, 2022.
