Thanks to generous donations, Studio tuition for the 2024-2025 school year is:

  • Elementary:  $6,000
  • Middle School:  $8,000
  • High School:  $10,000

We understand that financial circumstances vary, and we look forward to talking with anyone about needs-based scholarships. Economic diversity is a high priority in our community.

High School Electives:

  • Classes meeting twice a week – $650
  • Classes meeting once a week – $400

Please contact for upcoming electives.


  • Spot Saver: $1,000 per child
  • We make no money on Spot Savers; the full amount is credited towards your tuition.
  • Tuition can be paid annually or in 10 monthly payments starting in June. 
  • While the cost of a Studio Preparatory education is much greater, generous donations help us keep tuition low.  To support The Studio, parents help with fundraising and volunteer in a variety of ways.

Heath Schiesser Impact Scholarship

Studio Preparatory’s co-founder, Heath Schiesser, taught us to “assume everyone is smart, well-intentioned, and eager to help,” and we desire to bring in like-minded families regardless of economic status.  The Heath Schiesser scholarship honors his central drive to have an impact in multiple ways.

A limited number of scholarships are available for students who need tuition assistance.  Scholarships are awarded first-come, first-serve, based on demonstration of need. Current scholarship recipients must reapply by June 1st each year and will have priority up to June 1st. After the deadline, we will consider new applicants. All scholarship applicants will be notified by June 30th.   Apply Here.


Each student must have a Chromebook ($150 for a refurbished model).

Other expenses are nominal and usually include school supplies, a supply fee of around $100, and some Quest supplies (e.g., a tri-fold board for a science project).
