Financial Assistance


Paying for a private school is a concern for many families, and we want to help you with your concerns.  The Jacksonville Jewish Center Preschool is committed to giving Jewish children a Jewish Preschool experience regardless of a family’s ability to pay the full cost of the tuition.  Financial Assistance is available for students in preschool, not including VPK, based on a family’s demonstrated need.  A family may apply for Tuition Assistance once an enrollment contract has been submitted to the Preschool.  Please understand that in the event a family does not receive the assistance they requested to send their child to the JJC Preschool, the registration deposit will be returned.
