Tuition Information & Calculator

Families who send their children to Schechter Manhattan make a significant commitment, including a financial commitment. The combination of tuition and charitable gifts enable the school to provide an inspired and rigorous education. Close to a third of our school’s costs are covered by charitable gifts — including gifts from almost all of our families, both those who are paying the full tuition and the many families who are paying reduced tuition.

Schechter Manhattan is committed to making its education accessible to all families, at all grade levels. Families may apply to pay reduced tuition in either of two ways:


  •  A traditional financial aid application. Tuition is set on a sliding scale based on parents’ demonstrated ability to afford its cost. Schechter Manhattan uses the Independent School Management Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to provide a need-based financial aid analysis which ensures that our process for establishing financial need adheres to nationally established standards of best practice. You can find more information about applying for Financial Aid with FAST here.
  •  A middle-income tuition calculator. This simpler system lets families who need a relatively smaller amount of tuition relief — up to an 18% reduction in their family’s total — check their eligibility anonymously, and if desired, apply quickly and easily. You can explore this system further here.


Our community is committed to ensuring that all business office work, including both tuition payments and financial aid applications, take place in fair, dignified, timely, and appreciative ways.  


Financial Aid applications are due by December 1, 2017.


December 15, 2017 is the final deadline for accepting an award using the Tuition Calculator for the 2018-19 school year.


If you have questions about these processes, or about your family’s situation, at any time, please contact the Business Office by phone at (212) 427-9500 or by email at
