Affording Scheck Hillel

Financial Aid Application Process: 2024-2025

Scheck Hillel Community School makes financial aid available to all students who attend the school. The Financial Aid assistance is determined based on financial need subsequent to the evaluation of the financial aid application and supporting documents. 
Scheck Hillel awards financial aid based on demonstrated need to families of accepted students in grades K through 12, and assists families of qualified students who would benefit from the school’s program, but who otherwise would not be able to afford to attend. The student’s admission process is separate from the financial aid application so that the student is guaranteed consideration on his own merits, not on the family’s ability to pay tuition.
Awards are not intended to cover 100% of the cost of attending Scheck Hillel and are given for one year.
