2017-2018 School Tuition & Community Membership

School Year: September 2017 – June 2018 (10 Months)

Annual Community Membership: September 2017 – August 2018 (12 Months)

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.

For tax purposes, members paying full tuition may claim as deductions $600.

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

PRICING

Our rates are affordable and tailored to community needs. Our sliding-scale tuition rates are based on your ability to pay. We try to accommodate people who request financial aid.

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.
