All donations go directly to tuition assistance.
Our goal is to make the advantages of a high quality program - small class sizes, being known personally, highly qualified teachers - a possibility for every family on the Palouse. In order to do this we have a Sliding Scale Tuition to increase access to families demonstrating need. There are a limited number of slots available for reduced tuition* but all families are invited to submit financial information to determine the tuition level for which they are eligible. For families who elect not to submit financial information, tuition will automatically be set at the full tuition amount. Full tuition for 2019-2020 is calculated based on number of days per week enrolled, at $33/day.
* all slots will be filled based on financial need as well as a child's fit for our program. We will consider family income, household size, location (commute), age, potty-training, and demeanor. We will not base the decision on race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or national origin.
Budgetin a nutshell
Why do we share our budget? We want families to be informed on where their money goes and why our tuition has to be higher than other programs (our student to teacher ratio and our highly qualified teachers).
