Tuition & Value

We believe that JCDSRI offers tremendous value to our families. Our graduates go on to become engineers, artists, entrepreneurs, scientists, writers, and philanthropists. Their foundation in concepts such as design thinking, critical inquiry, collaboration, tzedakah, and tikkun olam informs and shapes their lives. If this is the future you want for your child, we are committed to helping your family make it a reality.

Your JCDSRI tuition includes a family membership to the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island and Dwares JCC. This tremendous benefit provides access to the Early Childhood Center, the Fitness Center (including the pool and fitness classes), and discounted rates for the J-Space Afterschool program, enrichment classes and summer camps.

Every family is different and tuition assistance is considered, case by case, based on a number of factors including income, expenses and household debt. Our tuition assistance committee is anonymous, and it is composed of community stakeholders who are longtime supporters of JCDSRI. There are no current parents or board members on the committee.

JCDSRI contracts with FACTS Management to administer our tuition assistance application process.  Start your application here.
