Sliding Scale Tuition
The sliding scale tuition model is a type of fee structure that accounts for variability in assets, income, and expenses as an attempt to increase accessibility for people with less financial and/or class privilege. We recognize there are social, physical, and material barriers to accessing this type of programming as well.
If neither the subsidized or scholarship rates are accessible for your family, please contact us and let us know what your needs are. We are committed to making programs accessible to anyone who is interested and are actively fundraising to increase our capacity to reach this goal.
This model allows self selection of registration cost, please pay the actual cost of attendance if you do not experience difficulty meeting your family’s basic needs such as housing, food, and transportation.
Where do you fall on the tuition scale? We believe that examining the intersection of privilege, wealth, and class is a lifelong process. The following questions are offered to provide starting points for exploring these topics, and not a definite tool for evaluating privilege and wealth.
