Can I visit Wild Oak to see the classrooms and school?
Open enrollment begins February 15, and we will be conducting tours for children and families interested in enrolling for the 23-24 school year.
Do you offer part-time programs for the Seedling School?
At this time we are not offering part-time programs.
I don’t think I can afford Wild Oak. Do you offer financial aid?
As a startup nonprofit, we have limited capacity to offer financial assistance, although one of our primary goals is to offer financial aid packages to ensure socio-economic diversity across the school and the opportunity for all children who would benefit to attend – not just for those whose families can afford full tuition. We are working towards a model where at least 50% of our students are eligible for and receiving some level of financial aid. Please do reach out to email@example.com if the application fee and/or tuition presents a financial barrier for you.
We also accept the statewide NC Opportunity Scholarship. This scholarship is available to children beginning in kindergarten. If you qualify, the scholarship amount is applied towards your tuition. To check your eligibility and to apply for this scholarship, please visit their website.
What kind of field trips will the students take?
Students in first grade and above will travel off-campus regularly, and we will request parent volunteers to assist with participation and transport. Field trips are planned to coincide and enhance the current classroom curriculum.
What if I want my child to be tested? How will that work? How will I know how they are doing in school?
North Carolina requires all private schools to administer end-of-grade standardized testing in 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 11th grades. We will administer standardized online testing for the appropriate grades. We will also offer testing outside of those grades to families as an option, with costs of those tests at the family’s expense.
