Tuition & Fees

/ Admissions / Tuition & Fees

The cost of tuition and fees are carefully considered so we can provide students with the highest quality educational program. We work hard to attract and retain the best faculty for our school, and to implement best practices across all curriculums. Our graduates, parents and current students know a Jewish education is a gift of a lifetime that provides priceless and life-changing returns.

Kehillah Fund and Jewish Federation

Every Hillel Torah family is expected to contribute to both the Kehillah Fund and JUF. While there is no minimum donation, we encourage our families to be as generous as possible to these organizations and help them to provide much-needed support to our school.

Please Note: Tuition reflects a significant subsidy through the generosity of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago and the Kehillah Fund
