Tuition 2017-2018*


At Kohelet Yeshiva Lab School and Kohelet Yeshiva Middle School, our tuition model is based on three core principles. First and foremost, we believe that a high quality Jewish education should be within reach of every family regardless of a family’s income level. Second, we believe that children learn best when there is a strong relationship between home and school and that all successful relationships are built on trust. Third, we believe that tzedakah is an obligation incumbent upon all of us and that few causes are more worthy than Jewish education. Therefore, KYLS and KYMS are experimenting with Jewish education’s first trust- based tuition model. And, to ensure the long-term sustainability of our school and to set an example for our children, we believe that all parents, regardless of income level, should be donors to Kohelet Yeshiva as well. As such, please see the chart below to determine your family’s tuition rate as well as your suggested annual donation. During the registration process all families will be asked to indicate their income bracket and will be taken on their word to do so honestly.
