Affordability, Financial Assistance, TuitionMAX

Art Class


At Gottesman RTW Academy, we believe that every Jewish child should have the gift of a day school education. In today's world, critical thinking and creativity are the building blocks of academic success. GRTWA gives students the tools to challenge themselves and learn in a way that is personal and individualized and puts them on a path to achievement. To foster a child's academic success, the social and emotional well-being of the child must be at the forefront of our educational program.

All GRTWA teachers are fully invested in discovering who their students are as learners and how to personalize the learning process for each student so he or she can achieve optimal growth in the classroom and beyond. We aim to teach the whole child in a nurturing and secure environment by constructing an individualized program that is guided by the students' academic indicators and their social and emotional needs. Jewish life is embraced and celebrated every day and is the moral and ethical fabric of our school.

We want every Jewish family to be able to give their child(ren) a Gottesman Academy education.

Grade A School

How do we accomplish that?

GRTWA is the fortunate recipient of a significant multi-year grant (called 2G) specifically aimed at improving, sustaining, and expanding our affordability programs. In addition, we have a tuition structure that is designed to be simple and affordable for your family.

What will your tuition look like?

Tuition Initiative

Our tuition schedule includes the following:

  • A simplified approach to tuition that eliminates all fees and discounts (i.e. registration, security, building fund, and sibling discounts)
  • A Gottesman Grant for each full-time, full-paying student, resulting in lower tuition at every full-time level


The K-8 TuitionMAX financial assistance program places a cap on a family's obligation at no more than 10% of the family's adjusted gross income (AGI), no matter the number of children enrolled. This includes ECC siblings of K-8 students. Click Here to view the chart of the AGI schedule. Families on existing financial assistance programs can stay with their current program or move to the new TuitionMAX program if it is more beneficial to them. 

Tuition Assistance

We offer a generous assistance program for lower-income families with children in K-8. Applications are strictly confidential and handled with great dignity and compassion. The Tuition The Assistance Program is supported through the school's annual fundraising, including the Shomrei Torah Annual Campaign, the Gala dinner, the Auction and the school's Memorial Tree.

  • To qualify for tuition assistance, parents are required to enroll or register their children and provide financial information before the Tuition Assistance Committee will consider their request
  • Assistance is based upon need and available funds.
  • Early Childhood Center families who need financial assistance can apply for partial scholarships through several small funds.

Greater MetroWest (GMW) Right Start
