Tuition Lock Initiative

We are proud to announce that The Colorado Springs School Board of Trustees has voted to continue the Tuition Lock program for a second year. We will also continue the much simplified automatic re-enrollment process in which payment of your deposit between February 1-15 will automatically complete the re-enrollment process ensuring that:

  • Families who re-enrolled during the first year of the tuition lock program will continue to benefit from the second year of locked tuition.
  • CSS families in their first year at CSS will have their current tuition rates locked with the 2017-2018 prices.

The Tuition Lock initiative allows all current families to plan for the future, rewards our current families for their commitment to a CSS education, and is part of our strategic plan to bolster enrollment and retain mission-minded student and families. Growing our student body benefits the overall health of the school and our students in many ways including increased academic, athletic, and social opportunities.

For the 2018-2019 school year, CSS families who re-enroll by February 15th, 2018 will have their current tuition rates locked with the 2017-2018 prices.

Children’s School: First-year families who re-enroll by February 15th in Children’s School will lock in the current (2017-2018) tuition rate for the duration of their students’ attendance in grades K-5th. For a single student entering Kindergarten, this program could save a family as much as $7,632* per student. Tuition Lock does not apply for PreKindergarten.

Middle School: First-year families who re-enroll by February 15th in Middle School will lock in the 2017-2018 current tuition rates for the duration of their students’ attendance in the Middle School and the Upper School. For a single student entering 6th grade, this program could save families as much as $1,814*. If a student remains at CSS for Upper School, his/her tuition rate locks for all of Upper School at the rate Upper School tuition was when the student entered Middle School. For a single student, under this plan, the seven years of Middle and Upper School could save a family as much as $14,395* per student.

Upper School: First-year families who re-enroll by February 15th in Upper School will lock in the 2017-2018 current tuition rates for the duration of their students’ attendance in Upper School (9th-12th grade). For a single student, entering in 9th grade, the four years of Upper School could save a family as much as $6,897* per student.

*Note: The accumulated savings are estimated based on attendance for all grades in the division, paying full current tuition and compared to increases based on past history at CSS and tuition gradients common among peer schools. For purposes of this example, a 3% tuition increase is used for the formula.

This program represents a tangible benefit for all current families and alleviates the anxiety associated with rising tuition. This program also rewards current families for investing in their children’s future. Thank you for being with us today and going forward.
