Parents - pay only what you can afford for QUALITY JEWISH EDUCATION. Finally, a fair & revolutionary approach to school fees.
The YBR CAPS Facebook page is a happy online space for us to share our revolutionary approach to school fees. YBR CAPS is an online program for Yeshivah-Beth Rivkah Colleges that calculates the total annual school fees based on annual household income. Outstanding Jewish education, now accessible to all. A little bit about Yeshivah-Beth Rivkah Colleges: With our roots going back to the early 1950s, our day school began with a handful of full time students. Fast-forward six decades and we have grown into a thriving and nurturing community school catering to approximately 1,300 students across five campuses. We believe that Jewish education should be accessible to all, regardless of individual needs, religious background or capacity to pay fees. We are a personal school, with personal relationships and a personal touch.

We have been asked a few questions over the past few weeks. Over the next couple of weeks, we will try to answer some of them on our page. Be sure to like the page and share the news.

"If I send additional children to YBR will my CAPS fee be increased?" No! Your CAPS fee covers all children attending the school from Prep to Year 12 and does not increase when additional children join the school.
The positive feedback about CAPS has been overwhelming. Please find another article that is now available to read on Jwire's website - http://www.jwire.com.au/news/46153/46153
We have been asked a few times - what is the catch? Is it a loan? Will I have to pay it back? Absolutely not. If your income stays the same, the CAPS fee amount, once confirmed by the school, is the total and final annual school fee you will pay excluding other levies and charges that may apply. There are no ‘loan’ arrangements, nor is there a payback system of any sort. The CAPS fee covers the entire annual school fees for all your children in the school, with the exception of a school levy of approximately $800 per child (subject to change each year) and other fees that may apply such as camps and excursions. The balance of the fees are written off. There are no hidden or additional costs. These questions and more at http://www.ybrcaps.com/FAQ
There has been plenty of chat already about YBR CAPS and the exciting initiative - one of the question is why are YBR introducing CAPS - we can tell you!! The ever rising Jewish Day School fees has made access to a Jewish education increasingly prohibitive and often impossible. Affordability of Jewish education is one of the greatest challenges we as a community face today. We also understand that many families don't feel comfortable to ask for fee discounts. Yeshivah - Beth Rivkah Colleges are addressing this challenge with the launch of a bold and barrier- breaking program linking school fees to family income. YBR CAPS sets the maximum fee that you will be charged for all your children at school based on your household income. Just go to the home page and complete the online calculator for an indication of what your total fees will be under CAPS. It’s dignified, transparent, fair and simple.
