Financial Philosophy
Ohr Chadash Academy is committed to providing an excellent Jewish Day School education to dedicated families who view their children’s education as one of their highest priorities and primary responsibilities. Without sacrificing educational quality, OCA works to alleviate, where necessary, the financial burden on parents as much as possible. In addition, OCA strives to assist qualified families with financial constraints to meet their tuition requirements through a variety of incentive programs, subject to availability, financial need, and other criteria.

Financial Aid Awards
OCA offers a Financial Assistance program for Grades K through 8, benefiting approximately 30% percent of our current students, with nearly $330,000 in awards distributed annually.

While we work hard to raise money for our Scholarship Fund, financial aid funds are limited. Families are encouraged to apply as early as feasible each year, as grants are awarded on a rolling basis, subject to availability and application deadlines. The goal in the financial aid application process is to keep information strictly confidential and carefully consider the personal circumstances of each family applying. Awards are decided on a case-by-case basis. To be eligible for consideration, financial aid applications must be completed, along with all requested documentation, prior to the financial aid deadline communicated each year. 

Applications are reviewed by a confidential committee, and award offers are contingent upon ongoing adherence to specified terms and obligations.
