Returning Students

Welcome Back!

We are delighted that your daughter is attending Derech Emunah. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you in providing an outstanding Torah and general education. It is now the time of the year when we start the re-enrollment process.

The Derech Emunah Finance Committee and the Board of Trustees have carefully considered the various factors in determining tuition and the re-enrollment process for the coming year.

We appreciate the financial investment made by the Derech Emunah families. Our tuition for the 2019-2020 academic year is set for $17,250. There is also a $150 re-enrollment fee for each student. The re-enrollment process is outlined below.

If you intend to pay the full tuition of $17,250, please submit the $150 per student re-enrollment fee to the Derech Emunah office by Friday, February 8th, 2019. Please note that the re-enrollment fee goes up to $250 per student if received after February 8th.

If you intend to apply for tuition assistance, please submit the $150 per student re-enrollment fee to the Derech Emunah office and have your online tuition assistance application received by March 1st, 2019. We will once again be utilizing the online service of FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) to process the applications. Detailed instructions on how to apply through FAST are provided on the last page of this letter.

FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by the Tuition Assistance Committee who makes the tuition aid determination.

Tuition contracts will be sent out by March 22nd, 2019.  There will be a two-week opportunity to appeal the tuition assessment to the Tuition Assistance Committee.  

Signed tuition contracts must be returned by May 1st, 2019.

Tuition payments will begin July 1, 2019.

Derech Emunah offers three payment options:

  1. Pay in full by check
  2. Twelve equal credit card payments.  Please provide your credit card details to Derech Emunah's front office to utilize this option. This option includes a 3% surcharge.
  3. Twelve automatic dedications from your bank account.  To use this option, please provide a voided check to the Derech Emunah’s front office.   

If you have any questions or encounter any difficulty in the application process, please contact Michael Friend at
