Financial Aid

Barkai offers Financial Aid to families who have a demonstrated need. Each family's level of assistance is based on their individual need and Barkai's available tuition assistance funds. Barkai utilizes two tools to determine a family's need. The FACTS Grant and Aid Management online platform and The Fund For Jewish Education (FJE) Universal Tuition Assistance Application. All families applying for Financial Aid should fill out all the requisite information both online on the FACTS website as well as on the FJE form (which can be downloaded by clicking on the document on this page). Applications for Financial Aid will not be evaluated if supporting documentation for both forms is not provided. All information provided will be kept strictly confidential. Please note that we do not offer Financial Aid for students in Orot or Ganon.
