    Private education has become cost prohibitive to many parents especially those with 2 or more children at school. Yeshivah Beth Rivkah Colleges (YBR), one of Victoria’s most academically successful schools, with quality Jewish and General education and outstanding VCE and NAPLAN results, has developed an innovative capped fee scheme. This scheme recognises the current financial pressures on families trying to provide their children with an excellent Jewish education.

    With current enrolments of over 1,300 students and growing, YBR delivers a comprehensive educational programme designed to empower students with the necessary academic and life skills to achieve success in contemporary society.

    Rabbi Smukler, Principal of YBR says; “Our unique CAPS programme will give eligible parents certainty about the maximum annual school fees they will pay for all their school age children at YBR based on a percentage of their total Household Income. For example, a family with a total household income of $130,000 per annum will be charged 10% of their income in fees being $13,000 per annum, regardless of how many children they enrol in the school. The balance of the fees will be written off with the exception of some charges and levies, which relate specifically to the child’s enrolment such as subject and security levies and camp fees.

    “Dependent upon their income, eligible parents will pay between 8-18% of their total annual household income in school fees for all their children in school and importantly, YBR guarantees not to increase the proportion of income new parents need pay for six years unless the parent’s financial circumstances change.

    “At YBR we have long been concerned that private education has not been readily affordable. It is our strong belief that every Jewish child deserves to have a Jewish education therefore we were determined not to let the cost of learning stand in the way of providing that strong educational foundation for all Jewish children.

    “We were also determined to enhance the dignity of those requiring fee remissions and remove the associated stigma for families needing financial assistance by having a simple and transparent online application process.

    “YBR are committed to providing quality education where children feel proud of their Jewish identity. We cater for the individual and for children from a wide range of backgrounds. Our philosophy is to engender Jewish and Australian values imbued with the inclusive Chabad philosophy – qualities of caring for others, compassion, self-motivation and an appreciation for Jewish life. YBR provides a nurturing environment with happy kids who are truly loved and cared for by their teachers. Emphasis is placed on the entire spectrum of personal development – mental, emotional, spiritual, academic, social and physical.

    “Determining if the CAPS scheme works for you involves a simple, non-intrusive and quick process. Prospective parents can work out their indicative fee level on an anonymous ground-breaking online tool found at www.ybrcaps.com or make an appointment with the school admissions officer.”
