We Make it as Flexible as Possible

At Education without Walls, we strive to make private secular education inclusive and affordable for any motivated family, therefore, we work to keep our costs low and to offer as many opportunities as possible for members of our community to contribute with time, energy, and skills.

 

While our expectation is that every family will pay their assessed tuition and fees, there certainly are several options available to make it manageable for those who need to find another way.  Affording EWoW is possible for almost any family that is willing to put in the time and effort.  We offer extended payment plans, tiered tuition, discounts for multiple family members, discounts for homeschooled students, discounts for returning students, and several named scholarship awards, noted below.

Working at Education without Walls as a teacher, teaching assistant, administrative assistant, or other needed job with payroll deductions put towards tuition fees is an option some parents choose.  An application and regularly scheduled hours are required and the work must meet a need already identified in the community.

We want every qualified student who wants to be at Education without Walls to be able to join our community, so please do not hesitate to contact us about the many ways that we work together to make this a reality for your family.
