Tuition & Financial Aid

2019-2020 Tuition and Fees

IMG_5570At Yeshiva University High Schools, we recognize that choosing a yeshiva high school is a major financial decision for families. For that reason, we are committed to helping families finance their children’s tuition costs at YUHS and assisting you every step of the way. We offer both need-based and merit-based awards. Need-based awards are based on the demonstrated financial need of our families which is determined through a financial aid application process. Academic scholarships can be awarded to incoming 9th-grade students (for the duration of the high school career) for those students that apply and are determined to meet the criteria for the merit award. For more details please contact the admissions office.

Within the limitations of our budget, and according to our financial aid policies, YUHS uses the services of the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) recommendations as a guideline in determining individual awards.

Families are required to apply each year and awards are reviewed annually. For questions about our financial aid process, contact Jennifer Gallegos in the Office of Student Finance at Jennifer.Gallegos@yu.edu or 212-960-5400, x5277.

Applying for Financial Assistance:

Families who would like to be considered for financial assistance must complete the application process by May 1st of the prior academic year. Applications will not be reviewed without an enrollment form and registration fee.

  1. Fill out the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) by going to sss.nais.org/parents. Follow the instructions to complete the PFS for Families online. The school code for Yeshiva University High Schools is 2461. There is a fee for the application which should be paid by credit card upon completion of the online application.
  2. Complete the supplemental form which is found on the PFS application. It should be uploaded at the end of the PFS form.
  3. We will not be able to review any application without the completed supplemental form and your most recent 1040 tax return uploaded to the PFS website.

Guidelines for awarding Financial Assistance:

  1. High School Academic Scholarships are awarded by the Head of School to superior academic students as they enter 9th grade. These scholarships will continue as long as the student maintains the high level of achievement expected of an Academic Scholarship recipient.
  2. High School Grants are awarded to incoming and continuing students who show financial need as determined by the Parent Financial Statement and yeshivaaid application. Awards will be announced to individual families over the summer.
  3. The Financial Aid process must be completed each year in order to receive assistance. Grants are subject to change based on fund availability and new information as it becomes available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition payments cover the basic cost of education at Central. Central charges additional fees for various student activity events and trips. Busing is not included in the tuition and may be requested at an additional fee. Please contact the YUHS business office for more information and rates.

Typically, financial aid applications are due in the middle of the second semester. Families will receive a reply mid-May. Families have the option to appeal the decision made by our committee by writing a letter or sending an email with additional information. Increased aid will be based on the availability of funds.  

Families receiving financial aid need to reapply for aid each year that their child is enrolled at YUHS. If a family’s financial situation does not change significantly, their award will remain comparable with awards from previous years.

All financial aid files are kept in strict confidence. Only financial aid officers and the YUHS Tuition Assistance Committee view and analyze financial information. Faculty and students do not know which families are receiving financial aid awards.

If a parent or guardian loses their job or otherwise experiences a significant loss of income, the family must notify the YUHS Business Office of Financial Aid. Depending on the circumstances, YUHS may be able to increase the family’s award. If this occurs, we will expect the family to participate in quarterly reviews to demonstrate a continued job search. Alternatively, we do expect families to notify us of a change in employment of significant salary increase (10% or more).  Failure to do so may cause termination of your aid package.  

Employees of Yeshiva University receive a discount on tuition for children that are in Yeshiva University high schools, undergraduate, or graduate programs. For more information, employees should contact the Human Resources department. Students eligible for University employee benefits are not eligible for any additional institutional scholarships – merit or need-based. Students of YU employees are encouraged to apply for the distinguished merit scholarship and will be awarded an honorary scholarship should they qualify.
