Mountain Sun has always been committed to keeping tuition levels as affordable as possible. Our tuition levels are in most cases significantly lower than other independent schools regionally and nationally. We strive to make Mountain Sun possible for a diverse population of children and families.
Annual preschool tuition: $5,150 for 5 half days.
Annual Kindergarten through Middle School tuition: $8,650.
Field trip fees will be assessed separately. Given the experiential and exploratory nature of the Upper Elementary and Middle School, these fees may be several hundred dollars for those classes. The annual total fees for these trips will be determined before the beginning of the school year, and parents may pay for these fees according to their chosen payment plan. Students may be responsible for raising a portion of these fees through fundraising and entrepreneurial activities.
A sibling discount of 20% off of tuition is offered for younger siblings.
Tuition is due in full by July 1st or may be paid through one of the following payment plans:
- Payment in full by May 1st qualifies for a 3% discount.
- Two payments: Due July 1st and January 1st.
- Four payments: Due July 1st, October 1st, January 1st, and April 1st
- Monthly installments: Due July 1st through May 1st (11 installments). Payment is due on the 1st of each month.
Your choice of payment plan will be indicated on your enrollment agreement. Tuition may be paid by cash, check, money order, or bank draft.
Through the generosity of our many supporters and prudent management of our finances, Mountain Sun is sometimes able to offer some financial assistance to qualifying families. Financial assistance applications are available by request and should be completed early in the application process. In most cases, financial assistance awards will be offered in conjunction with the enrollment agreement. Financial assistance is offered based on need and availability of funds. Mountain Sun also participates in the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Program. If you have questions or concerns about tuition or financial aid, please feel free to contact us. We are committed to working with you.
