Tuition & Fees
Tuition for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year has been set at $17, 500,. Tuition income accounts for only about 72% of our operating costs, and this increase, was made primarily to improve compensation for our language tutors, and to continue to provide highly impactful education. Our technology/supply fee will remain at $175 to help the school procure and maintain Chromebooks, educational technology licenses and software, and daily supplies like paper, dry erase markers, and other supplies.
We will continue to work vigorously to provide you and your student with the exceptional, individualized, and dynamic education that you expect and deserve for your investment in The Liberty School. We love what we do, and we're honored to play an important role in the life of your child; it's a responsibility we take to heart. We can't wait to make next year our best yet!
The Liberty School partners with TUIO, an online payment platform for tuition and school fees management. Through their platform you are able to view and pay your invoices electronically at any time via the following ways:

Credit card. Credit card use includes $0.35 + 3.5% in processing fees.
When you set up your account, your monthly tuition invoices will be issued to your TUIO account the 1st of every month and will be due the 15th of that month. Note: If you choose the "Pay Upfront" payment plan option, payment will be processed right away. Please keep this in mind when setting up your account.
You will have 4 payment options to choose from:
1) A full payment which will be due August 15th.
2) A quarterly payment plan with payments being due August 15th, November 15th, February 15th, May 15th.

To Set Up Your TUIO Account
Families will receive an activation email (one per family) from TUIO, which contains instructions to set up your account password. Please activate and set up your account & payment method when you receive the invitation. At the time you set up the account, you will be able to view your first invoice to pay your down payment (if you already haven't paid it). TUIO will send you email notifications when the first invoice is issued, and you will also be notified when your payment is successfully received.
If you do not receive any email, check your spam folder and add TUIO to your contacts. If that does not help, send a note to email@example.com to ensure that they have the correct email address on file. Once your account is activated, you can edit your name and email address on the account if necessary and set up payment instructions for your upcoming invoices. For detailed instructions to activate and set up your account in under 3 minutes, visit www.tuiopay.com/parent-support.
If you have any questions, please contact Zach Damp at firstname.lastname@example.org as Zach will be your Liberty tuition contact.
