Tuition and Registration

Full year / 5 days a week

Cost for a full year is $11,000, or $5500/ semester, which includes all classes, workshops, and one-on-one instruction during center hours.  Full year runs for Monday – Friday, 9-3 pm from September 5, 2018 to June 6, 2019, excluding holidays and vacations.


Tiered Enrollment: 1-5 days a week

We also offer a tiered enrollment program of up to four days a week. If you’re interested in participating in the CSCL in an ongoing way but don’t want to sign up for a full four days, this option may be for you! Rates break down by day as follows:

  • 1 day: $2200/ year ($1100 / semester)
  • 2 days: $4400/ year ($2200/ semester)
  • 3 days: $6600/ year ($3300/ semester)
  • 4 days: $8800/ year ($4400/ semester)

*NOTE: Tiered memberships are by day, not by class — it is *not* a drop-in program, and while we welcome visitors anytime, we do not offer week-by-week or daily drop-in enrollment. If you’re interested in coming by for a visit, see below!

Sliding Scale Rates

Sliding scale eligibility is pegged to free and reduced lunch, with the goal of making CSCL available to any child who wants to sign up regardless of income.

Next Steps:  Get in Touch!

Schedule a Day to Visit!

Kids who are interested in checking out CSCL are invited to come for a full-day visit to check out the space and see if it might be a good fit.   Parents are welcome to stay but we recommend dropping your kid off for at least a portion of the day so they can get a chance to experience the space on their own as well.   There is no charge for a one-day visit and we schedule them on a rolling basis — email to set this up!

Schedule a parent meeting!

If your kid is into CSCL, the next step is a parent meeting!   This is not an intake / interview process; it’s a chance for us to get to know you, and for us to explain how the program works so there are no mysteries going in.  Particularly for kids signing up full-time, we highly recommend BOTH a parent meeting and a kid visit so we can all be on the same page from the get-go.   We typically schedule these afterschool or Fridays during the day.   Kids are welcome to join, or they can hang out in the space and work independently during this conversation.    Not required but highly recommended.

That sounds great, sign me up!
