INNOVATIVE PILOT PROJECT TO CAP THE COST OF JEWISH EDUCATION

March 18, 2014 CSumerlus

As a school at the forefront of academic innovation and an abiding commitment to community, Robbins Hebrew Academy is joining the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and The AVI CHAI Foundation to provide a major breakthrough in continuing to make Jewish education accessible and affordable to all.
iCAP Tuition, a ground-breaking initiative that will be offered at Robbins Hebrew Academy, will ensure that eligible families with three or more children at RHA and with a total gross income between $200,000 and $300,000 will have their tuition capped at 15% of their income for Jewish education at RHA.
iCAP Tuition – applicable for students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 – augments UJA Federation’s current Tuition Assistance Program which provides financial relief to parents with a gross income of less than $200,000.
“We are excited to team up with Robbins Hebrew Academy and AVI CHAI Foundation on this exciting pilot, one that complements UJA Federation’s ongoing efforts to provide as many of our young people with a first-rate Jewish education,” says Ed Segalowitz, Executive Director, UJA Federation’s Julia and Henry Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Education.
“Every Jewish child deserves the opportunity for the very best Jewish and secular education within the warmest of school communities, that’s what we offer here, at Robbins Hebrew Academy and it’s why we are making sure that Jewish families no matter their financial background, can have their children educated with us” says Claire Sumerlus, Head of School, Robbins Hebrew Academy.
The iCAP Tuition program will begin in September, 2014 at Robbins Hebrew Academy. For more information please contact Michele Viner, Director of Admissions, mviner@rhacademy.ca or 416 224-7653 x 137.
