Religious School 2018-2019 Registration

Dear Parent(s),

It’s time to register your child(ren) for Religious School for the 2018-2019 school year.

We’ve made the registration process easier because we understand how busy you and your family are these days. We also know that you and your family are involved in many activities throughout the year and you acknowledge the importance of a Jewish education.  The time that you set aside for your child’s Jewish and secular formal education, will define just what kind of a person he/she will become and the contributions he/she will make in the world.  We feel blessed that you have selected Congregation Shaarey Zedek as the partner for your child(ren)’s Jewish education.

Congregation Shaarey Zedek works hard to provide meaningful experiences for your child, opportunities to learn and grow, and to make lasting friendships. Did you know that the cost of educating one child in our Religious School is approximately $3,000.00 per year?  We know that this level of support may not be practical for your family and our tuition rates reflect this.  Our tuition rates for the upcoming school year will remain at the same level as the previous year.








PRE-K $100.00 $200.00
KINDERGARTEN $225.00 $450.00
GRADE 1 $500.00 $950.00
GRADE 2 $600.00 $1,200.00
