Sliding Scale Program

Sliding Scale Tuition


We strongly believe that Little Lake Learning Community should be as accessible as possible to families of all Incomes. If full tuition doesn’t work for your family we are willing to work with you on a pay-what-you-can basis to figure out what would work.



Families seeking reduced tuition need to initiate our sliding scale procedure by requesting the sliding scale paperwork at a tour (Step 1 of our enrollment process). Families will be sent a Tuition Eligibility (to be filled out by the family) form as well as a Tuition Schedule form (providing information and suggested rates based on family income). Upon return all Tuition Eligibility forms must include proof of income statements, such as your most recent IRS filing and a W-2 or paystub.  Please note your overall household income and in the case of separate households a Tuition Eligibility packet is to be completed for each household.  Once you have noted your overall household income, find your tuition amount for your income bracket on the included Tuition Schedule.  In the case of multiple children being enrolled, please make sure to add the additional cost per month per each additional child.  If that monthly amount is not feasible, consider applying for further reduction of tuition.

All information must be complete so that the Tuition Committee has an accurate picture of your household financial situation in order to make fair determination of tuition.  Once your tuition amount has been determined, you will receive a statement and first month’s invoice.  You will receive invoices monthly throughout the school year.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Community Coordinator, Momo, at littlelakefs@gmail.com
