Estimating Your Annual Membership Fees

The scale below is to help you make plans; it serves as a rough estimate only. Our fee scale will be finalized in February 2018.


We value accessibility as well as accountability in our family fee agreements.

Full annual membership for full-time members at Pathfinder is $12,500 per year plus 6 hours of community service on volunteer work days.

The fee can be paid over 12 months and covers 5 days/ week from 8:30 to 2:30 in the 4 sessions per year. Aftercare may be available for an additional fee.

Income-based fee reduction is available for most families, along with significant sibling fee reduction. The calculator below should give you a rough estimate of what fees to expect for your family after applying for a reduction.

Where did we get these numbers?

We look to similar programs nearby and across the country- Agile Learning Centers, homeschool centers, and democratic free schools.

The Circle School in Harrisburg is over 30 years old, and serves a mid-size city of similar income range, and has a similar aim. We want our enrollment demographics to look like theirs, so we are following their fee scale formula. Read more about Circle School Alumni statistics.
