Tuition & Fees

Your child’s education is invaluable.

It sets the stage for how they see and understand the world–and their place within it–for the rest of their lives. When considering tuition costs, it’s important to compare the immediate financial expense to the long-term value of a quality education.

Our enrollment fees cover the costs of not only a world-class education, but a number of “extras” that require additional fees at most other public and private schools. Included in your child’s Discovery School tuition are Chromebooks for students in grades 3 and up., all field trip fees, all activity fees and Friday pizza lunches.

Above all, your tuition dollars are an investment in a one-of-a-kind education. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) is a research-based educational model committed to developing well-rounded children who demonstrate traits for lifelong learning, not standardized test-taking.

  • Autism Scholarship Program

    The Autism Scholarship Program (ASP) gives the parents of children with autism who qualify for a scholarship the choice to send the child to a special education program other than the one operated by the school district of residence to receive their education and the services outlined in the child's individualized education program (IEP).

    Any student who has been identified by their district as a child with autism and for whom the district has created an individualized education plan (IEP) qualifies for the Autism Scholarship program.

    The student must have a current IEP from the district of residence that is finalized and all parties, including the parent, must be in agreement with the IEP. A child is eligible to apply to participate in the program when the child turns three.
