We employ a rolling admissions process that extends throughout the program year (September-June). We balance our desire to grow a community of folks aligned in values and vision while also making our program as accessible and inclusive as possible for any family interested in joining us. In an attempt to co-create a community that is as rich and diverse as the broader Philadelphia community, we intentionally prioritize the applications of families who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

Admissions Process

TUItion + fees

At Wild Seeds, we believe that equitable access should be one of the primary goals of community-driven education programs. We are committed to serving families from diverse socio-economic backgrounds. Our sliding scale tuition aims to meet families where they are financially.

We trust families to make tuition contributions that both fit their budget and support the health and longevity of our program. Currently, Wild Seeds is funded by our sliding tuition scale and the Next Step Grant from VELA Ed Fund. On each young person's application, families are asked to make a generous and sustainable offer. Wild Seeds will review the offer always with the goal of accepting it. In some circumstances, our budget may require us to provide a counteroffer.
