Welcome


Welcome and thank you for your interest in Milwaukee Jewish Day School.

We are now enrolling for 2018-2019 school year!

Choosing the right school for your child can be an exciting as well as an overwhelming process. You are looking for answers to important questions such as: What will be the best education experience for my child? What outcomes should I expect from a high quality education? Where will my son or daughter maximize his or her potential? Where will my son or daughter be the happiest? What impact will a Jewish day school have for my child and my family?

The best way to explore the answers to these and many other questions is by taking a tour of our school. There are many exciting programs for our children and their families that you just have to see for yourself. It is a great opportunity to spend time in the classrooms seeing how interdisciplinary learning and Jewish values take place. You will also meet the students, teachers and staff who make MJDS a wonderful learning community and have the opportunity to learn about our enrollment process, including our new Affordable Customized Tuition Program.

MJDS provides personalized, focused education that meets the needs of each student and family and we believe we have a social responsibility to the same in terms of the accessibility and affordability of an MJDS education for all who choose to attend.

With donor and community support and commitment, we are able to launch a new Affordable Customized Tuition Program beginning with the 2018-19 school year and continuing into the future. The Affordable Customized Tuition Program is designed to meet families where they’re at. We started with what was previously called our Tuition Affordability Guide and made modifications to:

  • Simplify the application process for many families
  • Significantly increase the modified household income levels that qualify
  • Provide additional adjustments to adjusted gross income to take into consideration each family’s unique circumstances (such as child care, camp, college tuition, etc.)
  • Set tuition for siblings as a consistent declining percentage of tuition for the first child

We greatly value the confidentiality of your financial information. The items you share will be viewed solely by our Business Administrator Christy Horn, who maintains strict confidentiality.

Learn more about MJDS' exceptional education by exploring our website. I also invite you to schedule a tour to learn what MJDS is all about. If you have a question, click here; or if you are ready to apply click here to download the application.

Please give me a call at 414-967-8308. I look forward to meeting you!
