A comment on a different posting said "you can always choose a yeshiva that is 5% cheaper." But how would you know that? Maybe our conversations about school tuition could benefit from actually knowing some of the numbers. I would imagine that some schools count on the fact that parents DON'T know precisely how much other yeshivas are charging. A lot of parents assume that other yeshivas of the type that they are using for their kids charge about the same. So, let's get a list together.
Here's the info needed: Name of yeshiva, approximate number of students, if known, full tuition cost, including variants by grade (less for some, more for others), elementary or high school, location of school by geographic area (Flatbush, Teaneck, Miami etc.). Please leave the info in a comment or send me an email at email@example.com. After we get some numbers I'll put them into a posting so we can see the numbers side by side. And please, ask people you know for information as well. I think we would benefit from seeing just what yeshiva tuition is in different yeshivas, and in different locations.
the email should clarify if the tuition quote is all inclusive (building fund, security fee, etc.)
That would be excellent.
This would be a tremendous resource. It's kinda unbelievable that we've let these yeshivas get away with such low levels of transparency that we don't even know what they reall charge...
Agree that this would be a great resource, but I suggest that you also would need to know 1--how long the school day is in hours and how many days a week and also 2--how many hours of Jewish studies and how many hours of secular studies. If you're comparison shopping that's info you would need to know.
Some MO day schools have websites. And some even have their price list on their website.
LOZ - the email should clarify if the tuition quote is all inclusive (building fund, security fee, etc.)Oh, lots of "etc" here in many places. Application fee, testing fee, give/get minimum contribution.
I like this idea -- I can give you this past/current year's numbers now, or next years numbers in a month or so -- which would you rather?
Both sets of figures would be useful, particularly if they don't remain identical. If they do remain identical then the figures from next month please. And thanks for helping.
Some schools have the info on their websites:
