The Hebrew Day School of Ann Arbor is committed to providing a day school education to all who seek it. In keeping with this commitment, we deploy a variable tuition model, which is to say, we calibrate the level of tuition for each family according to its particular circumstances. Interested families submit an application to an independent third-party organization and have an opportunity to provide further information that helps the Variable Tuition Committee determine the appropriate level of tuition for that family. The HDS Variable Tuition Committee is charged with carrying out our school’s commitment to making day school education accessible. The Committee holds all information in strict confidence. In order for the Committee to make variable tuition decisions fairly and efficiently, applicants must follow the process and timetable listed below.
Parents submit financial information to an online service used by independent schools throughout the country. The Committee then reviews recommendations from this service along with other documents that have been submitted. To preserve the privacy of the applying families, the Committee does not include any current HDS parents and all proceedings are kept confidential.
Early application is encouraged.
