Tuition Assistance

The Board of Trustees is committed to providing a tuition assistance program to our families. This program enables many students to attend NCJHS who might not otherwise be able to do so.  Tuition assistance awards come from a variety of sources including NCJHS, individual donors, and The Jewish Federation.
