A continuing student is defined as any Tehiyah student or sibling of a Tehiyah student who has attended and paid tuition at Tehiyah at any time since July 1, 2015. This means that newly-enrolled siblings of current students are also eligible for the discount.


Continuing family discounts are not based on financial need and require no application. The only requirement will be to return your Enrollment Agreement by the deadline indicated on each individual contract. When you receive your Enrollment Agreement for next year, please read the letter and accompanying instructions carefully.

We are grateful for your continued support of Tehiyah and for your shared excitement in the changes we are making. We hope this new tuition structure is one more way that we have responded to your needs and acted on them in a way that is both fair to you and helps Tehiyah thrive in the years to come.

 
 
Additional Fees for Optional Services
 
ZUM TRANSPORTATION SERVICE
Bus service to and from Tehiyah is available to families living in Berkeley, Oakland, Piedmont and points south. This year, we are partnering with ZUM, a rideshare company specializing in transporting children. Zum works with several other area schools and their drivers are subject to the same background checks as our teachers. They will use vans, a small school bus or cars and their drivers have teaching or childcare experience. For more information, click this link.    https://ridezum.com/schools/tehiyah/
 
 

Tehiyah After-school Program (TAP)

Tehiyah offers an excellent after-school program that emphasizes student choice, encourages creativity, and facilitates healthy relationship-building in a safe, nurturing, multi-age environment.  TAP is available every school day until 6:00pm daily. TAP is also offered during parent-teacher conferences, professional development trainings, and several other days when classes are not in session; please ask the Admissions Office for a sample schedule.  For the 2015-2016 academic year TAP is available for a flat fee of $1,500 per child, or you may use TAP on a drop-in basis of $12.25 per hour for Kindergarten to 5th grade students and $6/hour for 6th to 8th students.

TAP is provided free-of-charge to all Bridge-K students and is provided at no cost for Kindergarten students between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.

In addition to TAP, Tehiyah offers after-school enrichment classes that range in price from $100-$250 per quarter.  In the past, classes have included Art, Mad Science, Yoga, Karate, Dance, Drama, Music Ensemble, American Sign Language, Gymnastics, Jewelry Making, Musical Instrument Instruction, Judo, Chess, Cartooning, and more.

For more information, please contact Jonothan Rich, TAP Coordinator.

Tehiyah Lunch Program 

We are very pleased to nourish our students daily with fresh, healthy, delicious, affordable, kosher meals.  All lunches are made by our extraordinary Chef Selma and her staff who use whole grains and organic produce as often as possible. Tehiyah’s kitchen is nut-free and seed-free, and we offer gluten-free, lactose-free, as well as vegetarian options on days there is meat or fish on the menu.  Chef Selma has been known to transform the pickiest of eaters who grow to love her culinary creations of “adult food”, not the limited options on typical kids’ menus.  Everything she cooks is made with love and served with a smile.

Lunch is provided free to Bridge-K students.  A sample menu can be found here.
