KJDS Tuition
The Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School (KJDS) is a mission driven school. Our mission is to provide students with a rigorous academic program, in a joyous atmosphere, rooted in core Jewish values. We recognize that a KJDS education represents a large investment by you. The leadership of KJDS remains committed to both the affordability and financial stability of this school.

Tuition is determined by the board in January for the following school year. Tuition for 2017-2018 is: Grades K-5 $10,090.00

There are additional fees for afterschool, class trips, and Israeli lunch.

Paying for a KJDS Education
There are three payment options for paying tuition.

  1. Payment in full due by August 1, 2017
  2. Three payments due by Aug. 1, 2017, Oct. 1, 2017 and Jan. 1, 2018.
  3. Ten payments due on the 1st of each month, (August, 2017 - May, 2018).

Financial Aid
To ensure that all Jewish families in Knoxville and surrounding areas have access to the KJDS education, those families for whom full tuition would be an undue hardship are invited to inquire into the possibilities of financial aid. KJDS financial aid is distributed based on need. We partner with TADS Financial Aid Assessment to ensure accuracy in our allocations.
