At Gray Academy, we are committed to ensuring that a Jewish education is accessible to everyone who wants it. Through the generous support of the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, we are able to offer a comprehensive needs-based bursary program for those who qualify.

Parental Contribution Explained

At Gray, we view tuition as a contribution to the future of our community. That’s why we call it the parental contribution. To make the school accessible to all members of our community, we have a sliding fee scale. Families pay a pre-determined amount of the parental contribution based on their total household income. If your annual household income is less that $165,000, then you will be offered bursary assistance to help cover the full parental contribution.

Below is the parental contribution for families who earn more that $165,000 for the 2019-2020 school year:

1st Child: $10,800
2nd Child: $10,800
3rd and Each Additional Child: $7,000

This scale shows the contribution levels for single and multiple students in one family entering Kindergarten to Grade 12 who earn less that $165,000. Click here for the Junior Kindergarten parental contribution information. 

All or a portion of the parental contribution is tax deductible.
