Affordability, Tuition & Fees

TanenbaumCHAT and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto are excited to announce a total of $15 million in gifts – from two exceptionally generous donors – that will help ensure the affordability of TanenbaumCHAT and enhance the future of Jewish education in the GTA for the next generation.

The donations, comprised of a $10 million Jesin-Neuberger Foundation gift; and a $5 million gift from an anonymous family (of which $1 million has been earmarked to strengthen Jewish education in York Region); together with additional fundraising, will result in a dramatic reduction in tuition from nearly $28,000 to $18,500 beginning in the 2017-18 school year and will maintain tuition under $19,000 for each of the next four years. This tuition reduction plan is an audacious step forward in realizing UJA’s strategic plan for Jewish day school affordability, and is a joint initiative of TanenbaumCHAT and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.

Tuition & Other Fees:

  • Tuition for the 2020-2021 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. The Tuition Assistance program, substantially supported by the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, is completely confidential. The program is administered within the 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.

  • 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.
