Our cooperative model helps keep tuition lower than it would be otherwise. When families work together to do service for the school, it provides a more harmonious and thriving community. Each family serves on a committee and contributes at least 8 hours of labor each year to care for our school, create community events, and manage school initiatives.
The annual tuition rates for the school year September 2021 through June 2022 are as follows:
Elementary and Middle School
Kindergarten through grade 8 is $26,980.
5 days a week is $26,980
3 days a week is $26,980*
2 days a week is $13,070*
Preschool Half-Day Morning Program
5 days a week is $15,370
3 days a week is $10,320*
2 days a week is $7,380*
*The three days a week option is for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The tw0-day option is for Tuesday and Thursday.
After-school care is available Monday through Friday until 6 pm at a rate of 13-15 dollars per hour. The exact rate will be determined once we know participation numbers. We must adjust staffing based on the number of students registered to determine that we can keep cohorts small. The confirmed hourly rate will be shared once registration is finalized.
Our Application Fee is $150.
Upon enrollment, each family is responsible for the following fees:
- Joining fee of $1,500 for new students and $750 for siblings of currently enrolled students
- Annual administration fee of $100
All fees and tuition are nonrefundable and nontransferable.
The Co-op School offers a 10% sibling discount to families with more than one student enrolled at the school.
Through annual fundraising efforts, The Co-op School is able to offer financial aid to some families who would not otherwise be able to join our school, and it is open to all prospective families. Families are notified about aid before the contracts are due. To apply for financial aid parents must complete a confidential application with School & Student Services. The application can be found here: Financial Aid Application.
Applications for financial aid for new families are due by December 15.
