Tuition & Affordability

Tuition, Fees and Required Expenses

The cost for tuition, room & board at Conserve School for the fall of 2019 or the spring of 2020 is $25,000 (USD):

$14,920 tuition
$10,080 room & board

Additionally, families are responsible for a $200 enrollment fee, incidental costs, and transportation to and from school (at the beginning and end of the semester, as well as the fall or spring break). Families are also responsible for providing their students with the required gear as outlined on the “Conserve School Supply List” found under the parents tab at the top of this website. Note that specialty items like tents, backpacks, and sleeping bags are available for check-out from the school.

Financial Aid

We realize that attending Conserve School requires a significant financial commitment. It was our founder's wish that Conserve School be available to as many deserving students as possible. Need-based financial aid is available to all who qualify while funds remain available. 

If financial aid will be a factor for your family, ensure your application is received by February 15th to receive full consideration.

With their federal taxable income, families can use the Scholarship Estimator to determine the projected cost of a Conserve School semester.

Additional information is available on the Affordability Frequently Asked Questions page.
