Tuition Assistance

Columbus Jewish Day School believes that our unique, integrated Jewish and general education should be available to all families. Our tuition assistance program reflects this commitment to the Jewish community. Our goal is to welcome and support a diverse group of qualified students, including those who would not otherwise be able to attend CJDS.

Families apply for financial aid through the NAIS School and Student Services (SSS), a confidential and unbiased third party. Applications, including tax documentation, are submitted online, directly to SSS. Families are required to reapply for financial assistance each year and awards are based on a reevaluation of the family’s financial situation and demonstrated continued need. Instructions to apply online can be found here. The CJDS school code is 1445.

CJDS also accepts EdChoice scholarships. The Ohio EdChoice program provides scholarships to eligible students to attend participating private schools, based on either where they live or their family income (the 2017-2018 academic year scholarship was $4,650 per student). To check your eligibility for EdChoice, visit: www.edchoice.ohio.gov.

We appreciate your interest in our school and hope that you will consider our community regardless of your financial situation. Please let us know how we can help you.
