CCM Registration 2024-25 (5785)

...the place for Jewish teens to build community, connection & mentorship!

Welcome to CCM's 2024-25/5785 teen enrollment page!

Below you will find the information you need to sign up your teen to join us on Wednesday nights (in person!) and retreats from September 2024 - May 2025. 


2024-25 Registration NOW Open!

We are now announcing 2024-25 registration!  The full cost to register for the 2024-25 year semester is $1200.00.  This cost includes the annual fee for the weekly Midrasha programming every Wednesday night ($825), two tickets to our February 24, 2024 Annual Gala event ($150), and a retreat deposit fee ($225), which totals $1200. Register by June 30th and the fee will be $1150. This year you can opt to pay in full or by payment plan.


Processing Fee:  We ask that you cover the Flipcause processing fee so that Midrasha does not lose funds on this transaction. In order to avoid the processing fee use code, "check" to register. Then please get us your check within a week: deliver directly to Midrasha on a program night or mail it to Contra Costa Midrasha - 25 Hillcroft Way in Walnut Creek, CA 94597.


Why enroll now?

  • Early Bird Discount of $50 is only available until June 30th if you register and pay in full.
  • Payment Plan option.
  • Pay in full for all three retreats when you register and you keep the 2024-25 costs of $375/retreat with an additional $100 savings for all three retreats!  (This cost will likely increase on July 1st)


Coupon Codes!  

  • If you are members of a CCM partner synagogue, Beth Chaim, B'nai Shalom, or B'nai Tikvah, your synagogue has agreed to cover $195 of the tuition, reducing your full cost to $980. Upon checkout, use the coupon code "SYN" to get this discount.
  • Signing up for a second teen?  If you are also a member of one of our partner synagogues, enter code "2ndSYN" to get the synagogue discount and to not pay for the Gala fee for your second Midrasha attending teen.  If you are not a member of a partner synagogue, then use code "2ndsignup" to not pay the Gala fee twice.


How to register/Pay:

1 - Pick the "Annual Tuition" registration option listed below. 

2 - If applicable, use a coupon code at checkout. 

3 - Want to pay by check?  Please fill out this registration, use promo code "check" (this will make your balance due here to $0) and mail or deliver the check to us within 7 days to Contra Costa Midrasha - 25 Hillcroft Way in Walnut Creek, CA 94597. (Don't forget to take off the amount of any synagogue discounts when making your payment.)

4 - Complete teen registration information, make *payment and you are done!

*Need scholarship, financial aid, or a payment plan?  Then use the "tuition assistance" registration option instead. You will be asked to pay a $25 fee and CCM's Executive Director will follow up with you to make payment plan and/or scholarship arrangements. 


Wednesday Nights at Midrasha
CCM meets weekly from 715- 915pm for teens in grades 8-12 to build friendships and community, Jewish engagement, and learning. Teens call it "the Shabbat in the middle of their week" for the calm and connection they find at Midrasha.  We begin CCM's 2024-25 year on September 4, 2024, and an 8th-grade Orientation on August 28, 2024.

Midrasha Retreats/Shabbatonim 
Retreats are a vital part of the Midrasha experience. Our teens gather for a whole weekend to celebrate Shabbat, share meals, bond with teens from all over the Bay Area, and connect to the quiet and calm of nature. For 2024-25, CCM is once again planning three full residential retreat weekends. As part of registration, each teen pays a retreat fee of $225, which can be applied to the cost of the first retreat your teen attends. As of April 1, 2024, each retreat will be $375, but we may decide to increase the per retreat fee. If you sign up for all three retreats with your teen's registration by May 31st, you get to keep the 2024-25 costs and a further discount, the full cost will only be $1025, or $341 per retreat.  This is a savings of $100!  If your teen is not enrolling for Wednesday nights, you can pick "retreats only" if to pre-pay for all three retreats.

Confirmed retreat dates for 2024-25 are:
November 8 - 10, 2024
January 31 - February 2, 2025
March 21 - 23, 2025

CCM Weekly Snack Donation  

We ask each family to help once with our weekly (traditional) Midrasha snack of donuts and cuties.  In this year's enrollment, you can pre-pay for this and we will take care of the ordering, or sign-up for weekly snacks via SignUpGenius.com once the form is live for the new year.


Donation  

As part of your annual registration, consider making a fully tax-deductible donation to Contra Costa Midrasha.  Your support helps us provide scholarships to teens who might need it!  Use the "donation" button at the bottom or in the registration to make donations in multiples of $36.


Tuition Assistance - Payment Plans or Scholarships:  No one will be turned away from CCM due to a lack of funds.  To request tuition assistance, register using the  "Tuition Assistance or Payment Plan: Application Fee" box below. The $25 fee will be applied to any balance due. Our Director, Devra Aarons, will get right back to you!  E-mail Devra at [email protected] to make arrangements for 2024-25.


Senior/12th Grade Fee:  CCM's 12th-grade programming includes monthly field trips and special educators.  This $125 fee covers field trip and graduation expenses.


NOTES:
  • You will need to sign up for multiple teens separately. 
  • 12th-grade students are asked to pay an additional $125 fee for field trips and graduation costs
Why are costs different this year?  The true cost of offering our CCM Wednesday night program is $1600 per student.  CCM works to keep that cost low, through grants and other fundraising methods.  Due to increased costs, CCM made the choice to increase fees this year. CCM is grateful for a scholarship fund from the Rothenberg Family.  We aim to enable all teens to participate, regardless of their ability to pay.  To make any kind of financial plan or scholarship request, register using the "tuition assistance or payment plan option" you can also reach out to CCM's Executive Director, Devra Aarons at [email protected].
