Paying for FJA

Frankel Jewish Academy offers generous tuition assistance as well as merit scholarships for exceptional students.  

Merit Scholarship

Frankel Jewish Academy is excited to announce the creation of the Frankel Merit Scholarship Program - a four-year merit-based scholarship that will be available for the 2020-2021 school year.

FJA will offer $20,000 scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition for no more than 15 new and deserving students beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. The scholarship will be awarded for each students' entire tenure at FJA for a total of up to $80,000 in scholarship money per student. Eligible students should be exceptional leaders in academics, athletics, arts or in the Jewish community.

Eligible recipients can be from any grade level, Jewish background or school as long as they are a new student to FJA. These scholarships will enable Jewish students to experience an exceptional Jewish and General Studies education.  Additionally, Frankel Scholars will receive Jewish values based leadership training throughout their time at FJA.

Students wishing to be considered for the Frankel Merit Scholarship must submit a completed application (including all recommendation documents and transcripts) by February 14, 2020.  

Frankel Merit Scholars will be announced on March 15, 2020.
