Mountain Laurel Sudbury School is committed to ensuring that financial limitations are not a barrier to enrollment for any student and offers a Tuition Assistance Program. Please contact the school for more information or to apply for tuition assistance.
Tuition is payable in advance or in installments. For students enrolling after the beginning of the school year, tuition rates will be pro-rated to reflect the student’s enrollment date.
Mountain Laurel Sudbury School recommends that prospective students and their families attend an Info Session as the first step in the enrollment process. If a family is unable to attend an Info Session, we recommend that they call the school to schedule a tour and meeting.
In order to enroll, each family must take part in an enrollment interview. This interview is not a test or a means of selecting certain kinds of students. It is a frank discussion during which all parties can ensure that the school is a good fit for the student and their family. It is essential that each family have a good understanding of our educational approach and be willing to support their child in pursing their interests. It is also important to determine that students are able to be fairly independent and fully responsible for themselves at school. For this reason, prospective students will be interviewed individually, as well as with their family.
Newly enrolled students receive a trial period of 60 days. The student may withdraw at any time during this period. After the trial period is over, students and parents must be willing to commit to the school for the rest of the school year. Because students often need time to transition to a new environment and different expectations, a year’s commitment to trusting the process of self-initiated learning and the work of community building is essential to creating a stable community at the school and a successful experience for each student. Any exceptions to this policy must be brought before the School Meeting.
Mountain Laurel Sudbury School admits students of any race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, gender or disability to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin or disability in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school administered programs, employment policies, election of officers, membership to assembly and election to board of trustees.
