Tuition and Fees
Tuition consists of two rates:
Lunch, Study Hall, Before Care, Free Choice, Tutor Room Fee: $7.00 per hour.
Instructional Classes: Class rates are based on age and hours enrolled.
Tuition at Leaves is based on age and the number of hours a student is enrolled per week. This means that it’s possible that each child in your family could pay a different rate. LOL is in session for 34 weeks; families pay only for the weeks that LOL is in session—not for breaks.
Little Sprouts Tuition
Registration is completed online, on a first-come, first-served basis. Class selections are reserved when registration and material fees are received. In order to reserve a spot in classes, we require families to pay the following:
$100 per student, and yearly material fees for each student.
Yearly material fees: Each class has an associated material fee which is used by the teacher to purchase class supplies. The average fee is $50, but classes using more materials (Science, Cooking, Art) will be higher. Material fees for the 34 weeks of classes are due upon registration. The material fees are not refundable.
Other Fees and Expenses
Family job opt-out fee:
If you choose to opt-out of family job hours (see below), you’ll pay $30 -$300 per year. (We use these funds to pay families to take on extra jobs.)
Advanced level class fee:
A fee of $100 is assessed for “advanced” classes meeting once a week ($200 for advanced classes meeting twice per week). This additional charge is necessary to cover costs, as these classes are naturally smaller in class size than regular classes.
To keep our tuition rates at a minimum, we require every family either to be responsible for a specific job or to pay a family fee. The fee enables us to hire others to perform the needed work and is billed monthly. As family jobs vary, each job is assigned a “point value” based on the effort required. (“Points” are not equal to hours.) Families will choose their job(s) online. The number of enrolled classes and corresponding point requirement or fee is as follows.
1 – 3.5 enrolled hours = 2 job points or $30/year
3.75 – 6.5 enrolled hours = 5 job points or $75/year
6.75 – 9.5 enrolled hours = 10 job points or $150/year
9.75 – 12.75 enrolled hours = 15 job points or $225/year
13+ enrolled hours = 20 job points or $300/year
