PAYMENT:

Once registration has been completed and returned to us with your registration fee, a Tuition Contract will be sent to you. After you have received your Tuition Contract, all parents must submit 10 post-dated checks, payable from August 1, 2019 through May 1, 2020. Admittedly, post-dated checks may be inconvenient for some families; however, it greatly eases the functioning of the Yeshiva Business Office and, as such, will be insisted upon.
No child will be permitted into class without proof of immunization pursuant to the NJ State Immunization Law.
NO FAMILY IS EXEMPT FROM FEES AND NO SCHOLARSHIP IS AVAILABLE FOR FEES.

FEES:

FAMILY ASSESSMENT: $750 per family, to be paid in full by January 1, 2020.

BOOKS, TECHNOLOGY & SUPPLIES FEE: Pre1A – 8th Grade – $500 per child. The book fee is due by August 1, 2018. Children in Nursery and Kindergarten are exempt from the Book, Technology & Supplies fee.

FACILITIES MANAGEMENT FUND: $750 per family, to be paid in two installments of $375 each due October 15, 2019 and February 15, 2020. Children in Nursery and Kindergarten are exempt from the Facilities Management fund.

SECURITY FEE: The Secure Schools for All Children Act was signed into law this past September. It establishes a State aid program for the provision of security services and/or equipment to help ensure a safe and secure environment for students attending nonpublic schools. As a result, Yeshiva Shaarei Tzion is happy to eliminate this fee from its Tuition Fee Schedule..

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: It is our goal to have a fair policy with regard to financial assistance. Such a policy must be fair to both the parents and to the Yeshiva. As the Yeshiva’s budget would not be covered even by all parents paying full tuition, it is imperative that all families carry their share of the load to the best of their abilities. Parents seeking financial assistance should request a scholarship application from the Business Office at (732) 777-0029, to be submitted no later than May 30, 1019 to insure timely processing. Applications received after May 30th WILL NOT be processed unless accompanied by a non-refundable $250 processing fee. No scholarship applications will be accepted after June 27th.

THERE IS NO TUITION ASSISTANCE FOR NURSERY, KINDERGARTEN OR FAMILY FEES.
