Financial Information

Gateways is committed to making every reasonable effort to prevent cost from being an insurmountable obstacle for a family who wishes to participate in our Jewish Education Programs.  Payment plans are available to all families with children who are enrolled in programs or who receive services through Gateways.  Financial aid is also available based on demonstrated need (see below).  Please note that all financial arrangements must be completed before services can begin.

The Jewish Education Programs' fees are set each spring for the following school year.

2020-2021 Fees and Policies

Payment Plan Information

FACTS logoAll installment plans are handled through FACTS Tuition Management. Please return your Jewish Education Program contract with your initial payment, indicating your preferred payment schedule.

If you have already enrolled in FACTS through Gateways in the previous year, do not enroll again.  Once you have sent in your paperwork and payment, we will re-enroll your account and you will receive a confirmation letter from FACTS detailing the steps to set up an online account to view your new payment plan.

To enroll for the first time, please use this Gateways-specific link.

Your payment options are:

  • Pay Gateways in full when returning your enrollment contract (no fee)
  • Pay Gateways for the first semester and defer the second semester payment to January
  • Pay Gateways for the first quarter and pay FACTS on a quarterly basis ($41 FACTS fee, less $20 reimbursement from Gateways deducted from your first FACTS payment)
  • Pay a 20% deposit then pay FACTS on a monthly basis ($41 FACTS fee)

If you have any questions about a payment plan, please email Deirdre Munley at

Financial Aid Information

Financial aid is available for qualified families based on demonstrated need.

FAST logoGateways is now using FAST, a financial aid processing service that several of the day schools also use.  If you have already completed a FAST application for another school, you should have received an email with instructions for applying to multiple schools. If you do not have this email, please contact FAST directly. If you do not have an existing FAST application, please follow this link to begin an application.

Financial aid applications for new students are due with enrollment, and for returning students by a deadline communicated the previous school year. All others are handled on a case-by-case basis and must be discussed with the business office. If, after completing your FAST application, you wish to communicate special circumstances that you believe have not been captured, you may include that information in an email to the financial aid committee c/o Deirdre Munley,
