Payment Plans

Stevens Cooperative School offers Tuition Management Systems as a payment resource for families. Families may choose to make payments in one, two, four or 10 payments (9 for new families). Payments begin in April or May prior to the beginning of the school year.

Afterschool Program

$250 Annual Fee - applies to PreK-4th grade only. (5th-8th grade afterschool program is free)

The Stevens Cooperative School Afterschool Program provides quality after school care to students in the full day programs (PreK - 8th grade) from 3-6 pm. 

Afterschool Specials Classes

Families can choose to sign their child up for a variety of specialized afterschool courses. Special classes meet once a week for twelve weeks. Some of the classes offered may be ceramics, Mandarin, tennis, drama, chess, computer, dance, volleyball, etc.

Early Morning Drop-off

Our early morning program begins at 7:45 am for all full day students.  There is no charge for this program.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available for families of students in PreK-8th grade. Financial aid applications are due in December for the following school year. As always, we encourage all families who believe that they may need financial assistance to apply through this program. Stevens seeks to enroll and retain strong, inquisitive learners, and families who embrace the school’s mission and cooperative environment, regardless of their ability to pay full tuition. Our program is need-based and is not related to the academic abilities of students.

 

The purpose of the Financial Aid Program is to provide financial assistance to families for whom the tuition represents a significant financial burden. It helps to bridge the gap between what they can afford to pay and tuition. Applying for financial aid has no bearing on admission at Stevens, and financial aid awards help families not just meet tuition but are also used to defray the cost of other aspects of the students’ educational experience (e.g. trips). The school understands that circumstances change, and we want to make sure that families know that they can request financial aid at any time during their child’s tenure here at Stevens.
