At MJDS, we are committed to providing personalized, values-based education that meets the needs of each student and family. We also believe we have a social obligation to the same commitment to the affordability of an MJDS education. We will work with every family who chooses MJDS so that a fair tuition is possible.

We do this with donor and community support and commitment through the Affordable Customized Tuition (ACT) Program.

Affordable Customized Tuition

The following ranges provide a general picture of the assistance available. Actual tuition is based on each family’s unique financial circumstances and will be set in partnership with Business Administrator Christy Horn. To start a conversation or receive the necessary application to complete, contact Christy at or 414-967-8309.

Please note that our admissions process is independent from the financial process, and admissions decisions are made without regard to a family’s ability to pay tuition.

The confidentiality of your family's personal and financial information is important to us. The forms and supplemental materials shared with us for the purposes of the Affordable Customized Tuition Program are held in strict confidence by our Business Administrator, Christy Horn.

Contact Business Administrator Christy Horn at or 414-967-8309. Christy will determine a unique, customized plan for each family.


FAQ regarding the Affordable Customized Tuition Program

Supporting the Advancement of Jewish Education (SAJE)

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.

The 2024-25 SAJE tuition is $6,300 per child. SAJE applies to tuition only - fees, fundraisers, after-school programming and grade-level programs are separate.

Learn more about SAJE by contacting Business Administrator Christy Horn at 414-967-8309 or
