Tuition Costs

At Wild River, we believe all families who will benefit from attending Wild River should have the opportunity to join our program. We believe that our school community should represent all socioeconomic backgrounds. We are committed to providing a reduction in tuition, to the extent that our budget permits, to students whose families qualify. We carefully calculate tuition to cover our operational costs including teacher salaries, facilities, and necessary supplies. Our financial aid program is supported by the school’s operating budget and targeted annual fundraising. The value of a Wild River education is measured in more than dollars and is an investment families choose for their child’s educational journey. 

Families can anticipate an annual tuition increases of 6–8%, which supports faculty compensation, program enhancement, and facility improvements / campus build out. Re-enrollment for current families will begin in March.
