MetroWest Jewish Day School is committed to making a Jewish day school education affordable to middle class families. Through generous donor support, MWJDS provides financial aid to most families who request it. The Financial Aid program is administered by a small committee of the school in concert with the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) in Princeton, New Jersey. They work together to assess each family’s level of need. The committee considers the unique financial situation of each family and they evaluate each application using a fair and confidential process to make their awards. MWJDS is committed to helping families who are ready to contribute toward the cost of a Jewish day school education but are unable to afford full tuition.
