Affording Live Oak

We know that a Live Oak education is a significant  investment. It is essential to our mission to create pathways to affording our tuition for families across the socioeconomic spectrum.

Annual Tuition

Kindergarten–5th Grade: $500 – $39,550
6th–8th Grade: $500 – $40,075


Tuition includes lunch daily, books and educational materials, all school supplies, technology (iPads/laptops and accessories), outdoor education, field trips, laboratory fees, yearbooks, and athletic uniforms.Tuition does not include extended care, but extended care costs are adjusted at the same percentage as tuition for families participating in our Adjusted Tuition Program.

Economic diversity is crucial to fostering a healthy school environment and enhances the students’ learning environment. Our Adjusted Tuition Program allows us to make a Live Oak education available to a wide range of families with a variety of economic circumstances. 25% of Live Oak families participate in our Adjusted Tuition Program.

Adjustments to tuition are based on assessment of financial need. Used by K-12 schools across the country, including Live Oak, the School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS) helps assess a family’s ability to pay for independent education and ensures that the request for adjusted tuition is being treated objectively and professionally. Please note, tax returns are required to verify the information provided and will need to be completed and submitted to Live Oak well in advance of the normal April 15th deadline. For Adjusted Tuition application steps and deadlines, see Important Dates.


Fees

A capital fee of $1,500 is paid in the first year of attendance. The capital fee is waived for families participating in our Adjusted Tuition program.


Financing Options

Live Oak offers two payment options. The first requires that 10% of tuition is due with return of the enrollment agreement for the upcoming academic year; The remaining balance is due June 1. Live Oak also offers a multi-payment option with 10% of tuition due with the return of the enrollment agreement and nine payments due monthly April 1 through December 1. The second option requires an automatic checking account deduction which incurs a 1% fee and also requires Tuition Refund Insurance (1.4% of tuition this year).
