dandelionTuition is $6,500 per year with one-time $200 enrollment commitment.

There are minimal additional fees1. Tuition can be paid in 10 equal monthly installments from Aug. 1st through May 1st. of each academic year.

CSCA’s tuition rate is competitive and has mindfully been kept as low as possible. Most field trip fees1, materials, books and other ongoing expenses have been included into the tuition and will not be added as extras.  There is an annual activity fee of $125 due on August 1.

1  CSCA may offer one or more special events (such as camping/overnight trips, Fundraising events, etc.) in addition to our regularly scheduled field trips. These special events are optional and may incur an additional fee.
