Tuition and Financial Aid
We are committed to maintaining socio-economic diversity in our community by helping families afford a CCJDS education. CCJDS has a deep commitment to tuition affordability. We recognize that families have different abilities to pay for private school. Financial assistance, in the form of flexible tuition, is a cornerstone of our mission. CCJDS makes substantial funds available for financial assistance to qualifying families. The school’s goal is to help as many families requiring assistance as possible.
Tuition for 2021-2022
Kindergarten – 5th grades: $20,750
6th – 8th grades: $24,000
Sibling discounts for full paying families:
$1,500 for the 2nd child
$2,250 for the 3rd child
CCJDS recognizes that tuition is a barrier for a range of income levels. Families with combined incomes of $0-$300,000 have qualified for tuition support depending on their particular situation including numbers of children, assets/debts, and other financial considerations.
Applying for Flexible Tuition
Note: The online application is designed for applications for fall, 2022, and requires year-end data for 2021. If you are a transfer applicant during the 2021-22 school year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance.
If you are interested in applying for financial assistance for 2022-23, please complete and submit the Online Flexible Tuition Form. Note: You will need to submit the form in January, 2022, so that you can include year-end data. After completing and submitting your Online Flexible Tuition Form, please provide a copy of your 2021 Federal Tax Return to our Business Office. You may send it by email to email@example.com or by US Mail to CCJDS, Attn: Business Manager, 955 Risa Road, Lafayette, CA 94549. If your 2021 Tax Return is not yet available, please provide copies of your 2020 Federal Tax Return and either your 2021 W2, if available, or your 2021 year-end pay stub. In this case, your 2021 Tax Return must be submitted by April 15, 2022 and the flexible tuition amount is subject to change based on the tax return information.
We encourage families that have concerns about their ability to meet our tuition requirements to go through the financial assistance application process.
All disclosures of information will remain confidential. The Flexible Tuition Committee will produce a tuition package recommendation after financial information has been submitted.
If you have any questions regarding the process, please contact our business office or Head of School.
Financial assistance is partially funded by generous donors, including the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund, the Aaron and Marie Blackman Foundation, and hundreds of individuals in our community.
