Tuition & Financial Accessibility

We welcome families from a wide spectrum of economic backgrounds, and enhancing financial accessibility to our school is a priority. Financial circumstances should not prevent you from applying. 

We understand that affording a Jewish high school education can be difficult. To respond to this challenge, we have established our own tuition assistance program which is made possible only with ongoing and robust fundraising through our Powering TanenbaumCHAT annual campaign.

The TanenbaumCHAT Tuition Accessibility Program (TTAP) will take effect for the 2022-23 school year. It was developed to provide tuition relief for families who earn between $150,000-$350,000 and who have one or more children attending our school. Please click here for more information about TTAP and a confidential anonymous calculator to determine your eligibility.  Once you apply, your application will be reviewed on a confidential basis and your eligibility confirmed by the school’s Tuition Assistance department.  

Substantial support is also available through the UJA Federation’s Community Scholarships (JCAP) to families who qualify. Families can apply at the end of April once an offer of a place at the school has been accepted. The process is confidential and administered by the school through the Tuition Assistance committee in accordance with UJA Federation guidelines. More information is available here

Please note that all families automatically receive tuition assistance forms. For further information about tuition assistance at TanenbaumCHAT, please contact Angela Buslovich at
