Tuition’ tuition is $35,000.00 for the 2022-2023 school year, with an increase of $1,500.00 ($36,500.00) for the 2023-2024 school year. That amount is very reasonable compared to other schools that serve similar students. Many of our students are able to attend TCS as a result of an agreement with their home school districts. Families often use advocates or law offices to assist them with this process.

Starting with the 2023-2024 school year, The Concept School Board of Directors announced the creation of the Dr. Carol Tucker Scholarship Program.
