2020-2021 School Tuition & Community Membership

School Year: September 2020 May 2021 (9 Months)

Annual Community Membership: September 2020 – August 2021 (12 Months)

SPECIAL NOTICE:

Due to the unusual and unpredictable circumstances this year, payments for the Sholem School will be made on a monthly subscription basis only.

The tuition prices listed below will apply as long as we are using a virtual teaching system. They are reduced from last year’s prices by approximately 25%, reflecting our lowered expenses that are due to not having to pay rent for our school facilities. When we do return to in-person instruction, the monthly price will be increased to cover our additional costs.

Community Membership:

Sholem Community Membership is included automatically with School Tuition. This reflects our philosophy that your child’s Sholem School experience is both about learning and about your family’s participation in our community.

Please also note, with a Sholem Community Membership your family will obtain discounted prices to many Sholem activities including our kol nidre observance.

Pricing

  • If you are able to pay your way, select Bracket A and pay this year’s reduced rates.

  • If you are able to lift up others, please donate additionally to increase to last year’s rates or fund a scholarship for another student in need.
    (these donations are fully tax deductible).

PAYMENT OPTIONS

Remember that your entire family automatically receives Annual Community Membership with any School Tuition purchased.

IMPORTANT

Please remember your Bracket (A, B or C) from above when selecting the payment option.

REFUND POLICY

Before December 1: Those seeking refunds have a choice of 50% of the annual tuition, or a credit to apply 75% of your current year’s tuition to the following year’s tuition.

After December 1: We reduce the amount that can be refunded by 10% per month. So, for example, after February 1, we will refund 30% of the full tuition. Alternatively, we can provide a credit toward the next year’s tuition. The amount of the credit is reduced by 15% per month. So, for example, after February 1 we will provide a credit to apply 45% the current year’s tuition to the next year’s tuition.

For refunds on a monthly auto pay plan, we will reduce the amounts of the remaining payments so that the sum of all payments is less than the tuition amount minus the refund amount.
