Tuition and Fees


We maintain tuition prices that are affordable and competitive. Tuition is based on total costs for the school year, divided into 10 equal installments and include all materials, textbooks and field trips. Tuition at The Circle School is a core component of the school’s fiscal health and timely payment of tuition is imperative to the daily operations. Throughout the school year additional fees may be billed. The Circle School uses a 3rd party tuition collection service, FACTS. Tuition is due on the first of each month (July 1 - April 1).

10 Equal Installments: $720 (July - April) paid on the 1st or 15th of the month

Co-op Participation:

When your child joins The Circle School, your family becomes a member of our Family Cooperative.  In addition to tuition, each family is required to complete 100 co-op hours per year (50 hours per semester), or 10 hours per month.  Each hour is valued at $13. By completing 100 hours, you have the opportunity to work off the Co-op Commitment fee. Families may also choose to pay for their Co-op hours directly ($1300 total for the year). These donated hours are an integral part of our cooperative model, improving the function of our school and demonstrating to the children how people working together can make great things happen! See the “Parents” section under ABOUT US for additional information on Co-op jobs and committees.
