Tuition and Registration: 2016-2017

 

Sholem Sunday school classes for the 2016-2017 year will begin Sunday, September 11, 2016. Students are welcome to join at any time during the year.

Sholem Community membership is included with tuition fees. This reflects our philosophy that your child’s Sholem School experience is both about learning and about your family’s participation in our community. For tax purposes, members paying full tuition may claim as deductions $600.

Our sliding-scale tuition rates are based on your ability to pay. We try to accommodate people who request financial assistance. To figure out your tuition fees, please review a table showing Los Angeles-area median income categories and note your category.

Refund Policy

Before December 1: Those seeking refunds have a choice of 50% of the annual tuition, or a credit to apply 75% of your current year’s tuition to the following year’s tuition.

After December 1: We reduce the amount that can be refunded by 10% per month. So, for example, after February 1, we will refund 30% of the full tuition. Alternatively, we can provide a credit toward the next year’s tuition. The amount of the credit is reduced by 15% per month. So, for example, after February 1 we will provide a credit to apply 45% the current year’s tuition to the next year’s tuition.

For refunds on a monthly auto pay plan, we will reduce the amounts of the remaining payments so that the sum of all payments is less than the tuition amount minus the refund amount.
