ADMISSIONS

Thank you for your interest in Beit Rabban Day School! We’re so glad you’re here.

 

The admissions process is a critical moment in the life of your family. School is a place of achievement and growth, but it is also a place to call home. Throughout the year, we offer many opportunities for prospective families to deepen their understanding of our school through a hybrid of in-person and virtual programming – and we hope to welcome you to Beit Rabban in the near future. Please email or call with questions or to schedule an introductory conversation. You can also gain insight into our school by following us on social media and subscribing to our weekly newsletter.

 

We know the application process can at times feel overwhelming, particularly in New York, and we are eager to help your family navigate that process at Beit Rabban. 

Looking forward to getting to know you!

We get to know all families new to Beit Rabban via Zoom, prior to scheduling an in-person tour. The introductory conversation allows you to learn more about Beit Rabban and ask initial questions prior to submitting an application, and will give us a chance to get to know your family before you come in for a tour.

Our individualized tours generally take place at (or close to) 9AM, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We hope you’ll join us for a visit.

DECISIONS

 

TUITION 2022-2023

Like all things, we consider financing a Jewish day school education to be a partnership between our school and your family.  Day school is an expensive proposition — our costs per child exceed the price of tuition. We also recognize that tuition is a challenge for many families. We address this challenge by offering families three tuition options: Full Tuition, The Affordability Initiative, and Scholarship Support.
