Affordability, Tuition & Fees

In 2017, TanenbaumCHAT was the recipient of a combined $14-million through gifts from the Jesin-Neuberger Foundation and the Granovsky family, facilitated by UJA Federation of Greater Toronto. Along with energetic fundraising for the TanenbaumCHAT Annual Fund, we were able to respond to the challenge of rising tuition. Thanks to philanthropy, beginning in the 2017-18 school year, a dramatically reduced level of tuition was secured for a five-year duration (2017-18 to 2021-22). 

Greater financial accessibility is considered a priority by TanenbaumCHAT and UJA. To that end, the school has introduced a new initiative, the TanenbaumCHAT Tuition Accessibility Program (TTAP), which will take effect in the 2022-23 school year.

Tuition & Other Fees:

  • Tuition for the 2021-22 school year is $18,999.
  • Please do not allow financial circumstances to prevent you from applying to our school. 
  • A portion of the tuition fee may be eligible for a Canadian charitable tax receipt.

Tuition Assistance:

  • We are a community school and we welcome families from a wide spectrum of economic backgrounds. In addition to our current lower tuition and the upcoming launch of TTAP (see above), UJA also provides substantial support to families who qualify. The process is confidential and administered within UJA Federation guidelines.
  • When determining fair subsidies, we take into account a family’s total financial profile and, where applicable, tuition assistance history from other Jewish day schools. If a family needs tuition assistance at more than one school, a shared “Family Tuition Fee” is determined. Parents can apply online for Tuition Assistance once their child is accepted and an Offer of Acceptance is returned.
  • For further information regarding tuition assistance, please contact Angela Buslovich at 416-636-5984 ext. 234.

Other Costs:

  • Families may be eligible for assistance for many costs in addition to tuition. No student should be prevented from participating in any school activity for financial reasons.
  • Mandatory charges for materials and activities that are part of the curriculum may add up to $500 (in Grade 9). Textbooks – new or used – typically cost $300-$700 annually. Other charges depend on course and extracurricular choices.
