Educational Scholarships

Day School Per-Capita Pool

Jewish Federation provides need-based scholarship funding to students at Abrams Hebrew Academy, Cheder Chabad, Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy, Kohelet Yeshiva High School, Politz Hebrew Academy, Raymond and Ruth Perelman Jewish Day School, Kosloff Torah Academy Girl’s High School, Torah Academy, and the OROT special needs program. Funds are distributed through a weighted, per-capita formula that accounts for the number of students enrolled at each school, the grade level of the students and the capacity of the school to meet the total scholarship needs of its student body.
