At Wild School, we believe that equitable access to education 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.

Tuition Determination Process
We trust our families to make tuition contributions that both fit their budget and support the health and longevity of the program. Currently, Wild School is primarily funded through tuition paid by enrolled families. On each student application, families are asked to make a tuition offer from the sliding scale. Wild School will review the offer with the goal of accepting it. In some circumstances, our budget may require us to provide a counteroffer.
Upon enrollment acceptance to Wild School, families are asked to pay the last month of tuition and the annual activity fee as the final step in the admissions process. The first month of tuition is due August 15th
Wild School fundraising supports our sliding scale tuition through our equity fund. Donations to the equity fund make Wild School accessible to even more families and increase our ability to offer additional programs. Please consider donating!
In addition, individual families can choose to “overpay” their tuition by a certain amount each month to contribute to the Wild School equity fund. For example, a family might overpay their tuition by $20 or $200 per month beyond their tuition as a way to drive equitable distribution of wealth in our community.
