Tuition Affordability Program

Introduction

The Jewish Academy of Orlando Tuition Affordability Program (TAP) is designed to make tuition affordable for middle class families, allowing parents to quickly determine the cost of tuition based on their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI), all within the privacy of their own home.

Upon completion of this self evaluation form, parents can submit their request for approval. Requests are reviewed on a first come basis, and are usually approved in 1-2 days. If approved, the student(s) tuition fees for the school year are guaranteed subject to verification of the information you provided.

Student(s) approved for the TAP program must still enroll in the JAO admissions process.

Program requisites

  • You can only participate in the program if you have filed your taxes for 2020 (preferably) or 2019.
