Supporting the Advancement of Jewish Education (SAJE)

Supporting the Advancement of Jewish Education (SAJE) is an exciting initiative that significantly reduces Milwaukee Jewish Day School tuition for families who work full-time (minimum of 32 hours per week) for a Jewish communal partner agency or synagogue.

For new SAJE families, starting tuition is $4,800 per child per year, which is a significant reduction from full tuition rates. After the first year, SAJE tuition rises at the same percentage rate as full tuition. SAJE applies to tuition only - fees, fundraisers, after-school programming and grade-level programs are separate.
