SLIDING SCALE OPTIONS

Honor-Based Sliding Scale Fee Options:
| $560 | $390 | $290 | $180 |

About the Sliding Scale Fees
WritopiaLab operates with limited resources, relying heavily on support from the community to sustain our programs. So we ask those who can afford to pay full price to do so. Also, if you can afford to pay the full price in monthly installments, that would be preferred as well. However, we realize that not everyone can afford the fee, so we have determined a sliding scale that includes a range of tuition amounts. Please consider your family income, resources, and dependents in the household when determining the appropriate fee for your child. This process is honor-based and confidential. Since we do not require any supporting documentation, we hope that you are honest in your assessment.

Writopia Lab's fees cover the expenses of running a school and allow us to provide generous scholarships and flexible sliding scale fees.
