Please note: Our tuition structure and package for the 2024-25 academic year is will be evaluated by our Board of Directors to determine needs for our growing school. While we are committed to keeping Wild Oak affordable for our families, there may be a slight increase of tuition from previous years to account for increased school expenses, growing resources, and monetarily honoring our employees with salaries and benefit packages that reflect the incredible work they do everyday with our children.

Wild Oak’s budget and operating expenses are intentionally lean. Our tuition is also significantly lower than our peers. Wild Oak is committed to keeping tuition as accessible as possible to families in our area while still providing a rich and valuable educational environment not found elsewhere. 

While there will be limited capacity in our first few years to offer financial assistance, we consider applications for aid. Please do reach out to if the application fee and/ or tuition presents a financial barrier for you.
