"Sticker Shock is one of the main reasons that parents do not consider Jewish day school as an option for their children. Though widely acknowledged as safe environments that provide both a challenging educational program and inspiration to lead Jewishly committed lives, parents are hesitant to begin paying tuition before a child enters college. In addition, parents and children are fearful if they transfer to a Jewish day school, they will be unable to make up Judaic studies they missed in earlier grades.
Several years ago, Katz Yeshiva High School of South Florida received a gift from Susan and Scott Shay to create the Shay Scholars Endowment Fund. It awards a number of students who attended public or private middle schools a four-year merit-based partial scholarship to attend KYHS. Students are selected on the basis of their interest in academic and religious growth and their ability to handle the challenging dual-curriculum program.
They Shay family has created this fund to enable teenagers to experience what it believes is perhaps the most important experience in shaping Jewishly-committed adults. Scott Shay's first experience in Jewish day school was in his high school years, and he and his wife are committed to encouraging students and their parents to "make the jump" to day school from public to private schools. A similar scholarship has been created at two other yeshiva high schools nationwide.
