Interested in enrolling at Clearview Sudbury School?

Students may enroll and begin attending at any point during the school year. During summer months, the Admissions Process begins with a direct inquiry with our Admissions Clerk, Shawna Pitts. Please get in touch!

Here is a summary of our usual 4-step enrollment process.

STEP 1: Educate Yourself

Sudbury schools are surprisingly different from most other public and private schools. Before starting the enrollment process:

  • Read, watch or listen to some of the abundant information on the model.
  • Download an information packet.
  • Contact us about scheduling a tour of the school. This is a great opportunity to see our campus, meet the staff, get all of your questions answered, and decide if you would like to schedule an Admissions Interview.

STEP 2: Admissions Interview

Call or email the office to schedule, or you may schedule an interview after a school tour. The student and all parents/guardians involved in the decision are required to attend the enrollment interview.

The enrollment interview is not a test or a means of selecting certain kinds of students. It is a frank discussion during which all parties can make sure that Clearview Sudbury School is a good fit. It is also an orientation for the student and a chance for us to collect information necessary for enrolling. Interviews generally last about an hour. There is a one-time interview fee of $100 per family.

We accept learners ages 5-18, but rarely enroll new students who are 16+ due to the time it takes to acclimate to our model of education.

STEP 3: Visiting Week

Schedule a day to begin a visit week. On or before the start day, we will send you a Visiting Week Contract and several other enrollment forms to fill out along with an invoice for the $200 per child visiting week fee. 

The visiting week is a period of five days where the prospective enrollee attends Clearview and has all the rights (other than the right to vote) and responsibilities of an enrolled student. Visiting students are asked to attend at  least 20 hours during their visiting week.

A conference also takes place at the end of the visiting week, to review the week and determine whether the student, parents, and school community are all comfortable with enrollment. A second visiting week may be scheduled if appropriate.

STEP 4: Enrollment

Once the end-of-week interview has taken place and all parties agree that enrollment is a good idea, the remaining enrollment forms and Enrollment Contract are filled out. We will then send out a tuition invoice that includes any enrollment/supply fees as well as a monthly payment plan.


Tuition and Attendance details:

The tuition is set at $10,900/year.

    • Many families opt to pay annual tuition across 10 monthly payments (prorated for enrollment date).
    • There is a sibling discount of 25% for the second child and 50% for subsequent children.
    • To qualify for a reduced tuition, there is an option to apply through FACTS who will make a determination on the tuition based on the family’s ability to pay.
    • We follow the AISD school calendar and are open on school days from 9am until 4pm.
    • There is a minimum attendance requirement of 20 hours per week and 4 days per week, unless an exception is granted by the School Meeting.
