Enrollment is Open year-round!
Tution and Financial Aid
WSS wishes that all families that desire this type of education will be able to afford it.
WSS has two options for tuition for your child(s):
1. Apply to FACTS: Your tuition will be set based on your family’s income and expenses, determined through a financial application process administered by FACTS. You will be required to submit income verification during this process.
There is a $40 fee for this application paid to FACTS. Families can apply to FACTS at any time without a commitment to the school. WSS will notify families of their tuition when FACTS informs the school.
2. Yearly Tuition: This option is for those families who do not wish to complete the FACTS application. Tuition for the 2023-2024 school year is as follows: Full Program is $10,500 for the first student, $7875 for the second student, and $5250 for all subsequent students,
Tuition is pro-rated for students entering after October 1st.
ALL families then elect to pay annually, semi-annually, or monthly via FACTS, our tuition management company. A deposit of one month of tuition is due at the time of enrollment, this amount is credited to the last month of tuition.
*Part-time enrollment is available for 5-year-olds who can demonstrate responsibility, safety, and respect after observing during a visiting week.
When families have learned about self-directed education and are ready to pursue enrollment, they will contact the school and begin the application and enrollment process. This will involve a zoom meeting, a visit to the school, and then finalizing all the paperwork before the student begins.
This process can take some time, but we want to ensure that this is a good fit for the family, the young person, and the school as well.
