Tuition & Fees

2020-2021 Tuition and Fee Schedule

Waiting List/Enrollment Fee:

A $100 non-refundable deposit places a child on the waiting list and becomes the enrollment fee upon registration. The deposit is required to enroll a new student but is not a guarantee of enrollment.

Tuition Deposit:

The Seed charges an annual tuition, paid in two half-payments and nine regular payments. The first half-payment is paid (per student) as a deposit which is due and payable at time of enrollment. The amount will vary depending on full or part-time enrollment.  The second half-payment is due on July 15.

Each other regular payment is due on the 15th of each month prior to the month to which it is applied.  Late fees apply to any required payments made after the end of the month.

Parent Observations:

Parent Observations are held every other Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Please do not bring children (except sleeping infants). Call for an appointment. (602) 454-2606. Children may come for a visit at another time prior to enrollment.

2020-2021 Tuition Rates K–4

Enrollment in the Seed’s elementary program builds on the curiosity and love of learning established during preschool years. Additionally, elementary students continue their education in small classes (20 max) with a teacher and assistant for each group. Their rigorous preparation for the future includes academic, problem solving, artistic/expressive, interpersonal/intrapersonal, physical, and planetary stewardship. Elementary students at Awakening Seed learn to be wise leaders as they practice empathy and compassion toward others on a daily basis. Many of the intangibles that elementary students receive show up in their lives years after they’ve left the school.
