Indexed Tuition and Fees

Home » Admissions Information » Tuition and Indexed Tuition Information


CELC Middle School uses an Indexed Tuition model to encourage diversity in its family and student population. We recognize that careers are significant in many ways beyond what the financial reward may be. So to avoid discrimination against those who have chosen careers whose primary reward may not be financial, we have introduced the CELC Middle School Indexed Tuition model.

New Family Application Fee is $150.00

Minimum Annual Tuition is $10,000/year, Maximum Annual Tuition is $25,000/year

Tuition is scaled to the family’s ability to pay tuition based upon national standards as determined by the independent tuition management provider TADS. All families must apply to TAD as they provide the financial information CELC requires to index your tuition. Click the link below or visit the TADS website for parents to apply.

“Life at CELC is unlike any other school. There is a place for any personality or learner. Through our everyday experiences we build relationships, and we become like a family. We go out into the world together. We work together and grow together. It is the best feeling to feel like you always have a place. You can just be you and find your place at CELC. It doesn’t matter what we are doing — hard and dedicated math, out in the woods, or walking the streets in Washington, D.C. – we always have a place to learn and have fun.”

Hannah, 8th-grade student at CELC
