Donna Klein Jewish Academy is committed to serving Jewish families from all economic backgrounds.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for Donna Klein Jewish Academy for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year. DKJA considers the FACTS recommendation in addition to overall need and our overall tuition assistance budget when determining awards. All tuition assistance requests are treated with the utmost confidentiality. It is important that tuition assistance applicants and recipients maintain that confidentiality as well.
Discussion of tuition assistance status may result in revocation of tuition assistance award. Families applying for tuition assistance will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Applicants can apply online at www.factstuitionaid.com. As Tuition Assistance is awarded on a fund available basis, it is recommended to submit all documentation when it becomes available to you.
Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process:
· 2015 Individual and Business tax returns, along with all supporting schedules – must be sent at time of application
· 2016 W-2 form(s), 1099 form(s) and K-1 form(s) - when available but no later than February 15, 2017

Notification of a tuition assistance award will be sent at a later date. You will then have ten (10) days from the date of the award notification letter to accept your tuition assistance amount. If you decide to withdraw at that time, you will not forfeit the reservation deposit provided your cancellation/withdrawal is in writing and is received within the ten (10) days of the acceptance period. To be eligible for this option, you must have completed the portion in section 2 of the Tuition Assistance Application that requests the estimated amount you can pay toward your child’s tuition.
