Tuition, Payments and Assistance

Take control of your education.


2017-18 Tuition

Day: $20,500  $14,500 as of January 1, 2018!*

Our aim is to help make LOCAL STEW U affordable for all accepted students.    Tuition includes any academic materials, iPad with case and keyboard,  subscriptions, books, field trips, and the monthly off campus retreat/tour.  Students are expected to provide their own lunch. *With the reduction in property costs associated with our farm purchase, we are able to pass those savings on to our students and families! Also in celebration of our new farm and school property, we are waiving the application fee for January!

Our goal is to make LoSU affordable to any student who wishes to apply. We do offer scholarships to those in need based on the availability of funds for the first year. For following years, scholarships are offered based on availability of funds and merit.

Payment Options

LoSU’s program is a year-round program which allows more flexibility in payment plans. We offer several payment options per contract year.

  • Plan A: One payment in full, due August 1 (Receive a 1% discount in tuition fee)
  • Plan B: Four payments, due quarterly, August 1, November 1, February 1, May 1.
  • Plan C: Monthly payments beginning August 1. (For the first year, parents may opt to begin payments early and spread it out even further.)

If you have additional questions about tuition, scholarships and payment plans, please call our toll free number: (844) 744-3518 or email us.
