Tuition Subsidy

The Mesopotamians built ziggurats. The Egyptians built pyramids. The Greeks built the Parthenon. The Romans built the Colosseum. Jews built schools. That’s why we’re still here, still strong, and still young while all those super powers in their day have been consigned to history.

Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks



Thanks to the vision and generosity of Ann and Jeremy Pava, New England Jewish Academy now offers a transformative subsidized tuition for all students from kindergarten – 12th Grade.

The subsidized tuition will provide an opportunity for students throughout the area to benefit from a Jewish day school that combines the highest quality education with an environment that nurtures the Jewish soul of each child.

“We genuinely believe that sending children to a Jewish day school is the most important decision parents can make,” said Ann and Jeremy Pava. “We know that day schools immerse entire families in exploring our tradition and sacred values and enables a knowledge and understanding of Judaism that can never be replicated anywhere.”

“We hope this gift will encourage enrollment by making day school tuition affordable and accessible to a broader range of families while also ensuring that our school provides an academic program of the highest quality.”

Grades K-1: $5000 (subsidy of $10,000 off the regular $15,000 tuition)
