The tuition at Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy is closely linked to the Academy Access Program, an imaginative approach to school funding and family involvement. The Access Program was instituted to reduce the high cost of living Jewishly, empower HBHA families to increase their tzedakah (charitable giving), and dramatically reshape how we fund the school.
Access has enabled the school to meet expenses through a combination of generous community funding, tuition, and parents’, family members’ and friends’ voluntary contributions. We thank parents and community donors for helping us establish the Access Program. While tuition has decreased, our cost to provide this top-quality education (currently averaging approximately $17,500 per child, per year) continues to rise. As a result of the community’s vision and ongoing generosity, tuition for the 2017-18 school year remains below our peer institutions. Even with these lower tuition rates, HBHA remains committed to making our school accessible for all Jewish children. We will continue to do our best to accommodate all HBHA families eligible for need-based assistance.
Tuition is determined in December by the HBHA Board of Trustees for the following school year.
