Tuition Assistance

SPHDS is committed to offering an exemplary Jewish education to all families. Awards of tuition assistance are subject to the availability of funds, therefore the school cannot guarantee aid or the level of aid repeated in subsequent years. SPHDS strives to provide assistance to the widest range of families.

All scholarship offered by SPHDS are moral scholarships if granted a scholarship, the recipient has a future moral obligation to support the SPHDS Scholarship Fund to the best of their ability. If one's financial circumstances allow, the recipient will repay the amount of any scholarship received.

The overwhelming majority of SPHDS’ expenses and obligations are incurred on an annual basis, financial commitments for our school’s services are made based upon anticipated enrollment, and the educational operating expenses of the school do not diminish with the departure of some students over the course of the school year.


For the 2021-2022 school year, the number of spots in each classroom is also limited due to COVID restrictions.


Due to these considerations, the school will not provide any refunds of tuition if a student is withdrawn, either voluntarily or involuntarily, after 5:00 pm on October 31, 2021. The school will provide partial refunds of tuition for voluntary or involuntary withdrawals that take place prior to 5:00 pm on October 31, 2021, as set forth below.


The tuition deposit is nonrefundable once it is paid in all circumstances, no matter when a child is withdrawn or the reason for the withdrawal. If parents provide written notice of withdrawal to the school on or before 5:00 pm on June 30, 2021, parents will receive a refund of 100% of any prepaid tuition (exclusive of the tuition deposit), and will not be obligated to make the tuition and fee payments set forth in the Enrollment Agreement.


If parents provide written notice of withdrawal to the school on or before 5:00 pm on October 31, 2021, parents will be liable for 50% of the annual tuition for the 2021-2022 School Year (exclusive of the tuition deposit).
