The school was built upon a belief that TKG should be accessible to families from diverse backgrounds. In the effort to make this possible, eligible families can apply for a co-op tuition model.
Every student’s tuition covers teacher salaries plus health benefits, classroom materials, community education, and location rent. All families will incur additional expenses in the form of extracurricular activities, supplemental classroom materials, and community events. Tuition covers the school year beginning soon after the Labor Day holiday and ending the second week of June.
Full Time (M-F) TUITION $15,275
Acorn (ages 5) Program (M-F 9-1) TUITION $12,525
Academic Focus Week (T-Thr) Program TUITION $9,770
We believe our educational environment should be the norm but until then, we must each make the commitment and sacrifice to support schools like TKG. Tuition is very low compared to typical private schools. Approximately half of our operating budget goes to the instructional program (compared to the NAIS* average of 43%). Our income categories include Tuition/Fees (82%) with donations and fundraising making up the rest. Families are asked to make up the gap (announced at the beginning of the school year) of tuition to the operating cost per student with a donation. At our tuition scale, TKG’s safe, nurturing, and whole-person education is a great value!
