TUItion + fees

We are forever balancing the reality of our tuition-centered budget (for now!) with our commitment to equity and access. We are committed to serving families from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and have never turned a family away for financial reasons. Our trust-based sliding scale tuition aims to meet families where they are financially.

The true cost of our program is $794/kid per month

We trust families to make tuition offers that both fit their budget and support the health and longevity of our program.  On each young person's application, families are asked to make a generous and sustainable offer. In some circumstances, our budget may require us to provide a counteroffer. We are also open to mutual aid bartering arrangements; let's talk about what's possible.

  • Program Schedule:Our program runs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 9am-3pm. Families can choose a fulltime schedule or 1-2 day options on Mondays and Wednesdays.

  • Monthly Sliding Scale Tuition:

    • 1 day/week of enrollment: $160-$600 per month

    • 2 days/week of enrollment: $320-$1200 per month

    • 3 days/week of enrollment: $480-$1800 per month

    • Don't let tuition be a barrier, we've never turned away an aligned family for financial reasons and can often access additional financial support.

  • Trial Days/Week: $70 per day (Trial Week = $210)

  • Annual Activity Fee for Day Program: $50-150 (depending on number of days enrolled)

  • Application Fee: $5-25 (payable via PayPal or Venmo)
