Fees and YBR CAPS Fee Initiative
We are committed to ensuring that every Jewish child has the opportunity to access a quality Jewish education
Making Jewish Education Accessible – CAPS Fee Program
Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah aims to ensure every Jewish child can enjoy a quality Jewish education.
What is “CAPS”?
YBR CAPS (Creating Access, Promoting Success) is a revolutionary initiative, capping school fees at Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah Colleges to make outstanding Jewish (and General!) education accessible to all.
For eligible families, a total annual fee for all children at the school will be calculated (excluding Pre-School). Your fees will only change if your income changes. CAPS fees are assessed each year based on a yearly CAPS application submitted to the school.
How does CAPS work?
Simply put, fees are calculated as a percentage of combined family income, thereby maintaining affordability at all times and into the future. This fee is regardless of the number of children attending the school.
The less a family earns, the lower the school fees charged. The percentage of fees you pay is guaranteed not to exceed between 8% and 18% of household income for eligible families depending on your income. And of course, parents are charged the lower of full fees or CAPS fees, whichever is less in their particular circumstance.
Who is eligible for CAPS?
Parents who have:
1. A combined household income of less than $350,000 per annum (for divorced parents, this includes any child support received)
2. Maximum of $350,000 equity in investments, such as an investment property, share portfolio etc. The primary family residence is excluded from the investment calculation.
