Tuition is $8,940 per year, in 11 payments of $812.72/month. There is a $200 application fee if a student joins mid-year to cover the first week of attendance.
Whether a child is from one family or another, it doesn’t impact the work we do for them. So while it doesn’t make financial sense to offer a family discount, we love having our kids all at the same school and we want other families to have that opportunity too. We offer a $50 discount/month for each child after the first from a family.
So, if you have 3 children at the school, you would receive a discount on the second and third child’s tuition each month.
Tuition is due at the start of each month. For ease of accounting, all payments are done through auto-pay.
All new candidates for admission attend Trekker for one week before an admissions offer is made. We do this to make sure a student is a personality fit before welcoming them into the community. $100 is due on the first day they attend to pay for that one week.
We prefer that parents pay monthly so there is no long-term contract and you’re free to leave at any time during the year.
Trekker is priced competitively. Acton Academy in St George charges $9,480 per year with a $500 enrollment fee each year, which equals $9,980 per year. Trekker is $1,040 less per year.
But, Trekker also isn’t the cheapest. Liberty Youth Academy in St George charges $530/month (with fees, but you also have to buy school uniforms). Plus, there are always free public schools to choose from!
When our kids started attending private school, it was tough to swallow the price until we saw what a massive difference it made in their happiness and learning. We know Trekker isn’t priced to be attainable for every family, but we feel it’s priced competitively so that it can be accessible to as many as we can.
