Yeshivat He’Atid is a modern orthodox day school located in Teaneck NJ with a radical approach towards how to charge tuition from parents and spending on education.

Rav Tomer Ronen, the head of school bucked the common belief of schools that to have a good education, a school has to spend more. Instead, Rabbi Ronen founded his school with the attitude of making school affordable while finding innovative ways to offer a great education at a cost that is much lower than comparable schools.

Rav Ronen and the President of Yeshivat He’Atid, Mr. Effie Billauer share their experiences running the school for the past 8 years and the surprising success they’ve encountered. While their approach is very out of the ordinary, other schools should be paying close attention to what they are doing.

With a full tuition collection rate of 92% and a break-even balance sheet, there’s a lot about this school that others might want to copy.
