Access and Affordability at Akiva
Tuition Assistance has evolved! Akiva’s A+A@A program and Federation CJA’s Generations Fund CAPS program (CAPS) have both been structured to support families across a range of income levels, ensuring that all Jewish families in Montreal can have access to a Jewish education for their child(ren).
Both programs are complementary to each other, with families receiving subsidies from only one program at at time. For more information on our A+A@A program and how it relates to CAPS, please see our FAQs or download our AAA & CAPS information flyer.
Akiva School believes that all students across the spectrum of the community have the right to a Jewish education. The Access and Affordability at Akiva (A+A@A) Tuition Assistance Program makes it possible for qualified families who are unable to pay full tuition to send their children to the school.
Akiva uses a third party company called Apple Financial Services to make the preliminary evaluation of your file. Apple financial services now offers an online service. Please see below the steps to follow to apply for financial assistance.
