FIRST-EVER BJEP Referral Program!
We rely on word of mouth! If you refer a family to BJEP and they register one student who attends at least the first 3 sessions, we will give you $250 off of your child’s tuition; if they register two children, or you refer two families who each register a child, we will give you $500 off of your child’s tuition, and so on. With this program, bringing one new student to BJEP automatically reverts your student’s tuition back to this year’s rate! We are determined to grow our school community while continuing to make BJEP as affordable as possible for our families, and we hope that this new program reflects our strong commitment to this goal.

Parent Cooperative Jobs
Each family is required to sign up for one BJEP parent cooperative job per student registered in order for payment to be accepted. Please use the link to the right to view the job descriptions and sign up for a job. We encourage families to sign up for an extra job or two. We could use the help!

If you have any questions about jobs, please contact Adina@bjep.com

Madrichim Teen Program
Graduates of BJEP are encouraged to continue as Madrichim (Classroom Aides) in grades 8-12. Madrichim are an integral part of our classroom communities and are paid a stipend. They assist classroom teachers, support student learning and provide continuity for the BJEP community. They are considered part of the BJEP staff and attend staff development trainings. Interested teens should contact Cantor Jeri Robins at director@bjep.com to apply.
