2017-18 Financial Aid for New Families

The process for applying for financial aid for the 2017-18 school year consists of completing an online application and submitting the required documentation, including copies of your filed 2016 federal and state tax returns. For 2017-18 Maimonides will be using Independent School Management's FAST™ (Financial Aid for School Tuition) program to process financial aid applications.

For Further Assistance

We strive to make the financial aid process as accessible and user-friendly as possible. Please contact Arline Tannenbaum, Tuition and Financial Aid Administrator, at (617) 232-4452 x425 or at any time with your questions.

NOTE: Families enrolling a child in a Jewish day school for the first time may wish to investigate CJP's Discover Day School grant program (for 2017-18, only entering kindergarten through 8th grade students are eligible). You may apply for school-based financial aid and for Discover Day School simultaneously, but must choose between accepting school-based financial aid (for any children in your family) and using a CJP Discover Day School Check. However, you may combine the Discover Day School Check with our MAI (Maimonides Affordability Initiative) Program. Click here to see if you qualify for Discover Day School.
