In keeping with the values of our school, the cost of operating CS#1 is shared cooperatively by all members of our community. The Board takes the anticipated cost for operating the school for the year and divides it among the families of enrolled students according to the steps outlined in the enrollment form.  The tuition for the 2017-18 academic year was $8,000. The Board offers fee remissions for families with demonstrated financial need and reduces the costs for all families through substantial fundraising and donations. The Board also offers three different tuition payment plans: monthly, by semester, and annually. For more information on the schedule for tuition calculations and financial aid, see the enrollment form for the coming year.


A limited number of scholarships may be available for the 2018-2019 academic year based on financial need. CS#1 uses an outside provider [FAIR-Financial Assessment Independent Review, Inc.] to assess financial need. This organization ensures a confidential, standardized method to award scholarships. If you are interested in applying, please read these instructions. There is a $30 fee to apply. Beginning February 1, 2018 through February 19, 2018, you may apply online at (the code is 157 for CS#1). If you prefer to submit a paper application, please email to request an application.
