Tuition Assistance Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

1. What are the Tuition Assistance (TA) deadlines?

Families may apply for Tuition Assistance between January 15th through April 15th, 2024.  All applications must be submitted during this 3 month period to be eligible and considered for Tuition Assistance. TA Awards are issued within 4 – 5 weeks after a full application is received (including supporting documentation). We highly encourage families to apply early to maximize their award potential.
For any new family that enrolls at RMBA between April 15 and August 1, the TA Committee will review those applications as they are received. 

2. Is there Tuition Assistance for the Learning Specialist or Resource Room?

There is Tuition Assistance available for these special educational services. Once your principal has informed you that your child requires special educational services you should meet with the Business Manager to discuss paying for the services.

3. How does a family know if they qualify for Tuition Assistance?

Tuition Assistance takes many factors into consideration, such as income, assets, and various family circumstances. Tuition Assistance is a confidential process and is offered as a family award. RMBA is committed to paving a path towards affordable Jewish education.

For families moving to our school from another Jewish Day School, we will review their past year's Tuition Award when making our Tuition Assistance decisions. Be sure to include this documentation when you submit your application.
