Seedling & Wild Oak Fees
Community Fee/ Gear Fund
The Community Fee is $100 for the first student in a family and $50 for each additional, due annually. This fee helps Wild Oak build the “Gear Fund,” which supplies unprepared students for play outdoors in all kinds of situations and weather.
Materials & Trips Fee
The Materials & Trips Fee is equivalent to 5% of a student’s annual tuition total (ex: $375 for Seedlings). This fee helps cover the cost of annual material replenishment, as well as “Fridays in the Field” off-campus and other field trips. This fee is due in 3 installments: 2% of tuition July 1st, 2% November 1st, and 1% February 1st.
The prospective student Application Fee is $50 for the first student in a family, and $25 for each child thereafter. This fee will be credited back to the first month’s tuition when enrolled.
The first month’s Tuition, Community Fee, and Materials Fee are due by July 1st. The remaining tuition payments are due on the first of each month September through May (9 additional payments).
Before & After School Options
Before School Program
There is no charge to families for supervision before school starts, from 7:45-8:15.
After School Programs
Afternoon Friends (Seedlings PreK-K)
The Seedling School “Afternoon Friends” program will be offered until 4:30 each day. Families must sign up for days in advance and submit payment with their monthly tuition. Options are: Monday-Friday (every day), Monday-Wednesday-Friday (3 days per week), or Tuesday-Thursday (2 days per week). “One-off” days can be scheduled as space permits. $5 per day for Seedlings attending Monday through Friday and $8 per day for 2 or 3-day per week Seedlings.
Afternoon Club (1st grade +)
Afternoon Club is available for 1st graders and up. Students who are not attending an Afternoon Academy class may participate in Afternoon Club for $12 per day, up to a maximum of $36 per week.
1 day per week extra-curricular courses are generally $90 per 5-week session for current Wild Oak students and $100 for students from the community (homeschool or other school), although there may be courses with additional fees.
The Afternoon Academy courses are fully open to other students in the community.
The first class runs from 2:20-3:40 and the second from 3:55-5:15. Care outside of the student’s enrolled class is available through the Afternoon Club program for $4 per day.
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, please do reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if the application fee and/ or tuition presents a financial barrier for you.
