Tuition Assistance Program

Akiba Yavneh Academy (AYA) recognizes the educational value of a school that infuses Judaic and general studies learning for the students, we welcome all Jewish children to attend AYA. Our financial aid program supports those families who need financial assistance.


AYA’s tuition assistance program is designed to support families who demonstrate financial need. This is done in accordance with the principles and practices recommended by Independent School Management (ISM), National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), and the Jewish day school network Prizmah.  Akiba Yavneh Academy employs “Blackbaud Financial Aid Management”, a third-party independent company to help evaluate and determine a family’s level of need so the school can ensure a fair, consistent, and equitable assessment of each family’s financial situation and ability to pay educational expenses.


In 2021-2022, AYA awarded over $2.6 million in tuition assistance to approximately 40% of the student body. Here at AYA, we know the true value of this stellar dual-curricular program that instills values, skills, knowledge and inspires our children to lead. We are proud that our tuition assistance program enables all who seek the opportunity of an outstanding Jewish education to receive one. Those who apply are required to provide all relevant information in their applications so that the committee can best consider each request and their need for assistance.


Please know that AYA tuition is the cost to educate your Akiba Yavneh student. Any shortfall in tuition revenue must be made up by generous donors each year. We ask that you carefully consider your financial prioritization, resources, and spending before completing your Tuition Assistance application.


Our commitment at AYA, in turn, is to treat all our families with respect, dignity, and clarity throughout the Tuition Assistance process and to that end, please rest assured that all personal information shared in the application process is held in strict confidence.
