Tuition Payment Plans
In order to assure convenience and efficiency for our parents as well as the school, Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy has once again retained FACTS Management Company to manage all tuition payment plans and collections for the 2023-2024 school year. All tuition payments will be made to FACTS either by Automated Bank Draft (ACH) or Credit Card. Please note, if you choose to make payments through a credit card, there is a 2.95% processing charge.
If you are a returning family, you will automatically be re-enrolled in FACTS using the same information, choice of payment plan, and dates of payment as last year. If you want to make any changes to your payment plan information, please login to your FACTS online account and make the changes or contact the Business Office for assistance. To access the FACTS sign in page, click here.
If you are a new family to Barrack, as part of the online enrollment process, you will be directed to the FACTS sign in page where you will need to set up a username and password and choose your tuition payment plan. If you have applied for tuition assistance and already have a username and password, you will still need to choose your tuition payment plan. Once you have completed the FACTS online enrollment, you will be redirected back to the online enrollment process. For more information about FACTS, see below.
The deadline for enrolling and re-enrolling for the 2023-2024 academic year is March 1, 2023. If you have any questions about the online enrollment and re-enrollment process, please contact the admissions office at email@example.com. If you have any questions about online enrollment in FACTS, please contact a FACTS Customer Care Representative at 1.866.441.4637. If you have any other questions regarding tuition and/or tuition payment, please contact Noah Chai, Controller, at 610.922.2340 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In addition to Barrack's own scholarship funds, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia has formed the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools, through which it distributes funds from Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs. To access the 2023-2024 Foundation for Jewish Day Schools FAQS, click here.
The Foundation for Jewish Day Schools is using FACTS Management to process all EITC/OSTC applications. Since Barrack already uses FACTS Management for its Tuition Assistance application process, families who qualify for EITC/OSTC will no longer be required to complete two applications or pay two application fees.
Families will be required to complete the Barrack Tuition Assistance application and if the family meets the EITC/OSTC eligibility requirements, they will need to check the appropriate box for Foundation for Jewish Day Schools and the questions required by the Foundation will be included in the application.
Please note that the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools requires families to upload their 2022 tax return no later than April 24, 2023. If a family files for an extension, the 2022 tax return must be uploaded by October 16, 2023.
EITC/OSTC Eligibility Information:
Please use these guidelines to determine whether your family qualifies to apply.
Note: Each student included in the EITC/OSTC application must be a resident of Pennsylvania living with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s).
