Open Window Online is a high quality, high challenge, high touch, and high support program available to students throughout Western Washington and northern Oregon who are identified as gifted. We recognize that attendance in our program is an investment in your child’s future and we strive to make our program accessible to all students who qualify.
Open Window Online offers fixed tuition which means families pay the same tuition each year throughout their time at Open Window Online. Tuition for students who start the program in the 2023-2024 school year is $19,000.
Beyond the daily school experience, tuition covers:
- Entrance fees for all excursions (field trips)
- All materials fees related to learning content; this includes access to online resources and specialized materials needed.
There are some items not covered by tuition, including:
- Student technology hardware (laptop, webcam, computer mouse, etc.)
- Transportation to and from excursions
Our desire is that families who are committed to the philosophy and values of Open Window Online are able to attend; we do not want cost to be a barrier. Because of that, we are offering a personalized approach to tuition setting through a Sliding Scale model. If you request consideration for this model, your tuition will be set based on your family's income and expenses, determined through a financial application process administered by School & Student Services (SSS). Families requesting Sliding Scale consideration are asked to complete a confidential application through the SSS portal. A link to this portal will be posted soon.
We recognize that applying for Sliding Scale tuition may be a new process for many families and we are here to answer questions and help you through the process. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions you have about the process.
