Tuition

+Enrichment

Students participating in open enrollment register for classes through our online system. These classes cost $15.00 per hour. There is no commitment to the number of classes students must take per month or year. Students may also enroll in up to two hours of Independent Time (at $10/hour) for each hour of Instruction they attend each week. Sibling discounts and payment plans are available; contact us for details on getting set up.

Some classes will incur a small supplemental materials fee, which you’ll find noted in the class description. This is typically for material intensive classes like Art and Sewing, or classes where we order curriculum or supplies on your behalf to be used in class, like in our Dissection Lab.

For example, a student who wants to take a one-hour history class each week ($15.00) could also sign up for Independent Time in the hours before and after (2 hours @ $10 each, or $20 weekly), giving them 3 hours of time at IfSpace each week at a cost of $35.00/week.
