Pre-K Sliding Scale Tuition Consideration

The Soulard School seeks to build a diverse community of families from all income levels and backgrounds. We offer sliding scale tuition for our pre-k families. All pre-k families applying for sliding scale tuition consideration are required to submit a Family Financial Commitment Plan (FFCP) with their admissions application.   

Determination of sliding scale tuition rates is based on family need and the school's commitment to balanced economic diversity.

 

Pre-K Admissions Priorities

The school takes the following priorities into consideration when making pre-k admissions decisions:

  • Students already enrolled at Nursery
  • Child of staff member or siblings already enrolled in school
  • Classroom balance (i.e. gender, age, socio-economic and racial/ethnic diversity, and schedule considerations)
  • Students reapplying from prior year waitlists
  • Neighborhood residents
  • All other applicants

 

Pre-K Continuity to Elementary

As the elementary school converts to a charter model in 2019-20, we will no longer be able to guarantee continuity of enrollment from pre-k into kindergarten. All eligible prospective kindergarten applications will be given equal weight in the admissions process, regardless of prior enrollment in our pre-k program.
