The Board of Trustees of New Community Jewish High School is committed to providing a tuition assistance program to our families. We are proud that this program enables many students to attend NCJHS when they might not otherwise be able to do so. In addition, tuition assistance helps to increase the socioeconomic diversity represented in the school community. Applicants wishing to apply for Tuition Assistance should check the appropriate box on the back page of the Application for Admission.
In addition to the school’s own tuition assistance awards that come from a variety of sources, including The Jewish Federation, BJE, and individual donors, there are a limited number of awards for middle income families. These grants, which are made possible through the generosity of the Jim Joseph Foundation, are renewable each year based upon continuing need over a student’s four years at NCJHS. Please visit http://bjejjfgrant.org for more information.
