Shorashim Day School Affordability Grant

The Shorashim Day School Affordability Grant was created to provide Jewish teens in Metro Detroit with increased access to Frankel Jewish Academy's exceptional education.

This grant is an opportunity for current and incoming families to opt-in to reduce the cost of tuition. The grant is available at $2,500, $5,000, or $10,000. Families will choose the amount that fits their needs.

The goal of the Shorashim Day School Affordability Grant is to increase the number of Jewish teens who have access to Frankel Jewish Academy’s exceptional education. We know that there are thousands of Jewish teens in metro Detroit who could attend FJA, and cost should not be a limiting factor in their choice to attend. In addition to the grant, Frankel Jewish Academy will also continue to offer generous tuition assistance.

You may opt in as part of your enrollment contract. No application or income information is required. 

Not all families need the full amount of $10,000. Giving families the choice to select their grant is a way to help them find an annual tuition amount that feels most appropriate for each family.

Every student is eligible to receive the Shorashim Day School Affordability Grant every year they attend FJA. 

The funding for this grant is coming from a restricted gift and the school is not able to use it for anything other than the Shorashim Day School Affordability Grant.

Yes. Your student is still eligible to receive the grant. You would simply select your grant amount of $2,500, $5,000 or $10,000 and that amount will then be prorated and applied to your prorated tuition.

The Shorashim Day School Affordability Grant will be available to current and incoming FJA families and is guaranteed throughout their tenure at FJA. We will evaluate these grants over the next few years to determine their effectiveness. 

FJA’s tuition will continue to have moderate increases every year as it normally does. The grant will apply to whatever the tuition is for a particular year. 

You may not donate the grant itself back to FJA, but we always accept donations to FJA's Annual Campaign. If you choose to make a donation to Frankel Jewish Academy, that will be your choice, and it will be treated like any other donation to FJA.  We appreciate contributions of any level.  If you would like more information about making a donation to FJA, please contact Jackie Yashinsky [email protected]
