Tuition and Duties

CCNS is a cooperative, nonprofit school. Member duties include paying tuition and being responsible for the organization and operation of the school. All members must pay tuition and co-op in the classrooms. Financial assistance is available to families that demonstrate a need. Tuition reduction applications are available here.

Tuition for the 2020-2021 school year:

  • Two days-a-week (Explorers, Voyagers): $1,485 ($165/month)
  • Three days-a-week (Trailblazers, Adventurers, Pathfinders): $1,800 ($200/month)
  • Four days-a-week (Investigators): $2,115 ($235/month)

*Tuition may be paid monthly or annually. Tuition that is paid monthly is due by the first Friday of the month or a late fee will be applied.

CCNS offers a half co-op option for those who show a need. The cost to half co-op is an additional $50/month on top of the tuition listed above. You can apply for half co-op directly through your enrollment application when prompted.


In addition to tuition payment, CCNS families are asked to contribute their time. Each enrolled family must also perform the following duties:

  1. Co-op: Parents assist the teacher during class time approximately two times every four weeks in the older classes and one time every three weeks in the younger classes.
  2. Committee Membership: Parents must participate on at least one “operating committee” during the year. (If you have more than one child at our school, you still participate on only one committee.)
  3. Meetings: Parents must attend the school’s general meetings and any committee meetings. Children do not attend the general meetings.
