We are committed to making our learning community as affordable as possible to ensure equitable access. In order to offer an outstanding, self-directed education experience, we partner with a small team of professional facilitators and are committed to paying them equitable wages.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), child care is considered affordable if it costs families no more than 7 percent of their income. With that in mind, we recommend that families pay 7% of their income as tuition for WoW.*  (Calculation: Annual income x .07 ÷ 12) 

For example:

Yearly Household IncomeSuggested Monthly Tuition*

* We recognize that income is just one aspect of a family’s financial picture. Some families may have other forms of wealth, while others might have substantial financial obligations. We encourage people to consider their own circumstances, including their experience with class privilege, and choose a monthly payment based on what works for them. When families (that are able) choose to pay more, it creates opportunities for others and supports our desire to create a diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning community. Also, we don’t want to turn families away if they don’t have the ability to pay. Please contact us at with any questions.

We also charge each family an annual fee of $50 to cover communal supplies such as first aid kits.
