In order to register for programs, you must commit to one full semester. Membership fees and seat deposits are a one-time annual cost due immediately upon registration.

  • As a courtesy monthly payments will be accepted in up to 9 installments from September through May. The examples above for monthly payments assume a two-semester or 9-month commitment.  If a family resigns before the second semester, the final payment would be half of the monthly example amount shown.
    ** Participants in our Capstone extension to earn high school credits for the Middle School Enrichment Program will pay an additional $100 fee with the seat deposit.

Payment Options
When registering, each member must pay their membership fee and seat deposit immediately. Monthly payments can be arranged for the remaining tuition monthly by ACH with no extra charge. There is a 5% monthly service fee to pay by any other method. If at any time you cease to participate in programs, the entire tuition obligation will be due in full immediately.

Discounts

  • A 5% discount is given for full program year commitment and payment in full by ACH or check.
  • Coupon codes for sibling and multi-day discounts may become available. 
  • Parents who would like to serve as volunteers for the Unschool Studio and Gameschool Programs will receive a $50 credit for the following month’s tuition per completed volunteer shift. Please contact info@walnutgrovecoop.com to discuss this option. Parents who volunteer must stay all day and most likely will not be scheduled in their own child’s group. Parents must pass a background check.

Fees and discounts are subject to change. There are no refunds for any portion of fees unless a program is canceled by Walnut Grove Coop.
