Village Home is in session for three, 10-week terms between September and June. We are proud to be able to offer high-quality, engaging classes for such an affordable price. Some classes like lab science, art, and technology classes will be higher due to class material fees. In addition to classes, clubs, and competitive teams, we also offer field trips and workshops, parent enrichment programs, and travel opportunities. Village Home is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and relies on fundraising and donations from our families and friends to keep classes affordable and accessible, we provide over $30,000 in Financial Aid annually.

Class Tuition Base Price $110 for 10 hours of Instruction
Pre-School offerings are $95 for 10 hours of Instruction
Clubs are led by volunteer parents and are offered at $25 for 10 hours, Financial Aid may be applied
Classes such as lab science, art, and technology classes may be higher due to class material fees or book costs
Materials & Book Fees
Materials fees will typically be added to science, tech, and art classes ($5 – $20) to cover class specific supplies. If there is a specific product or textbook required by the instructor, your product or textbook will be added to your invoice and provided by the teacher on the first day of class. In some cases, we will include an Amazon product link in the description and instruct you to purchase the text or product directly and bring it the first day of class.
Reliance on Volunteerism: Or Community Duty (CD) Program
To keep tuition affordable, and to be a part of the community, Village Home families participate in Community Duty (CD). We understand that busy parents are juggling a log, so our Community Duty Program makes it easier to volunteer. Every family is required to do Community Duty, most tasks are between 3 -5 hours each 10-week term. There are tasks and special projects throughout the year requiring more time for those who would like to help more than 5 hours each term. An ADULT has to complete the Community Duty for a family (CD can be done by an adult friend or relative on behalf of another family). Families who are unable or choose not to do Community Duty may buy-out.
There is a 2 week Add/Drop period at the beginning of each term. Full tuition refunds are available when classes are dropped before 5 pm the day of the SECOND class meeting. After the Add/Drop period, there are NO tuition refunds. Materials and textbook fees may not be refundable. If your student misses a class, or is asked to leave a class because of disciplinary reasons, there is no refund. If Village Home cancels a class, you receive a refund of tuition and material fees.
Tuition and Fees may be paid in full at time of registration, or put on a payment plan with a credit card on file. A minimum of one-third of the tuition is due at the time of registration. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover online. To pay with cash or check, you must register in person at the office. Payment plans are available at check-out, and divide your account balance into three payments per term. Payment Plans are arranged within the registration system. A payment plan is available with a credit card on file.

Ways to Save on Tuition
We strive to keep tuition affordable. Here are some ways to save:
- Refer a friend. Earn $20 off a class if you refer a friend who signs up for the first time with Village Home for at least one class (does not apply to clubs). Then, you stop by the office to claim your $20 off coupon (credit) after the add/drop period.
- Apply for Financial Aid. We disburse over $30,000 a year in financial aid to families who qualify. See the Financial Aid section below for details.
- Apply for and get placed in a Community Duty Plus job, and get a discount on classes.
Registration happens a few days prior to Regular Registration. Families in Priority Registration often get their first choices of classes. There are several ways to qualify for Priority Registration: (1) Be on the faculty/staff/board, (2) Enroll in the Day Program, (3) Donate $250 or more between August 1, 2017 – August 5, 2018, (4) Put your family’s name in the lottery for one of five Priority Registration spots.
Limited need-based financial aid is available for the all Village Home campuses and is awarded in the summer for the entire year. Deadline for first consideration is July 23, 2018.
