Maitripa Tara School program utilizes a tuition “sliding scale” model, where those who can, pay more, allowing those who need, to pay less. The efforts and contributions of all members of our community build equity into our education system. Through active participation in this model, we want to establish reciprocity, strengthening the relationships within our community and expressing support for our institutional model and education programs. It is our hope that this approach facilitates a more equitable and inclusive community, as well as the possibility of a fair compensation model for our staff.
Sliding Scale Options
At our current level of operation, the basic cost of running the program at Maitripa Tara School is approximately $1,300.00 per month, per child. Based on this number we have devised the following price point options for our sliding scale.
- Payment Option 1 – $1,350.00 monthly per child
- Payment Option 2 – $850.00 monthly per child
- Payment Option 3 – $1,850.00 monthly per child
To participate from this model we request you consider this opportunity with care and choose your contribution level with honesty, discernment, and wisdom. Within this “honor system” we ask you become familiar with the mission and goals of Maitripa Tara School and present a request for your participation in the “sliding scale” program. Please examine these options and pay what you are able based on your resources, keeping in mind that access to our education program can only be accessible to all families if those with grater resources share what they have.
