In order to ensure a strong school for years to come, Heschel will put concerted effort into balancing enrollment growth with affordability. We will use current strengths to ensure long term financial strength and attend responsibly to lowering financial barriers to a Heschel education.
Our goals are to:
Continue to provide an excellent innovative integrated Jewish education
Retain and hire excellent educators and support them with advanced professional development and fair competitive remuneration
Enrolling two full classes per grade (20 students per class)
Fundraising to ensure:
Continued enhancement of our innovative, integrated education
Support for the retention and development of educators
Lowering of tuition barriers
Creating a tuition model that makes Heschel education affordable to all
Develop the school’s brand in such a way as to strengthen loyalty among our students, parents and alumni, and secure steady enrolment and a broad/deep donor base.
Further explore different tuition and subsidy models
Prioritize school initiatives to support enrolment and fundraising
The school senior leadership and Board will regularly review this priority area to ensure goals are being met, and to ensure the school is positioned to enhance its financial sustainability.
