Tuition & Fees

As a small, nonprofit school, we strive to keep our tuition and fees as simple and reasonable as possible for our families. Below is a list of our tuition and fees:

Fall 2024

Tuition: Tuition is $510 per student per semester. We keep tuition low for every student, therefore we do not have an additional student discount.

Registration Fee: There registration fee is $50 per student per semester and non-refundable. The registration fee helps us cover the administrative cost of registering.

Books: Book prices vary depending on the class. Many of our classes use a textbook and/or workbook to accompany learning. Students typically only need to purchase a book/workbook once per year and we strive to keep the cost low. Book prices vary depending on the class. Books can be purchased when registering or students can purchase the book for their class themselves. Books do not need to be purchased until the student is sure of which class they will be attending.

Materials Fee: Some classes that do not use a textbook may have a materials fee.

Summer 2024

Each Summer Special Interest Class has a specific theme/topic. These classes are shorter in length and duration, thus prices vary depending on the class. There is only the cost of tuition for most Summer Special Interest Classes; typically there are no additional fees.
