Affording JCHS

JCHS offers a flexible tuition program designed to help keep a JCHS education accessible to families from a variety of economic backgrounds.
As a community school, it is a priority for JCHS to make this quality education as accessible as possible for the widest range of mission-appropriate students. We consider every family's individual situation carefully. While each family is asked to contribute financially toward their student's education, we encourage anyone sincerely interested in attending JCHS to apply to our Flexible Tuition Program, even if you have concerns about your family's capacity to afford full tuition.

Our admissions process operates separately from decisions about the Flexible Tuition program. Consequently, and because our resources are limited, some applicants may be admitted to JCHS, but placed on our Flexible Tuition program waitlist. 

To learn more about the Flexible Tuition Program at JCHS, please join us at our Flexible Tuition workshop with our Director of Finance. This workshop is for any family applying to JCHS, and you may register by contacting the Admissions Office.
