Tuition for the Sprout Studio is $1,050 per month. The Discovery Studio and Journey Studio are both $1,200 per month.

What do you mean by learner driven?

Our students are given the tools to take responsibility for their own education. When something isn’t working, we want our students to work together to solve the problem, rather than relying on an adult to step in. This creates a culture of leadership and excellence.

Is The Treehouse Academy a Montessori School?

We respect and incorporate much of Maria Montessori’s philosophy, but we are not a Montessori school. We take inspiration from Reggio Emilia and Waldorf as well. 

How is technology used in the classroom?

Our youngest learners in the Sprout Studio primarily use Montessori materials to learn. When students transition to the Discovery Studio, they receive a Chromebook for use in adaptive math, and some supplemental reading programs. Technology is used in a responsible, and age-appropriate manner.

How long is The Treehouse Academy in session each year and what is the school calendar?

We operate on a 11-month calendar, with extended breaks throughout the year. This allows families the freedom and flexibility to travel without missing out on learning.

Will children be grouped by grades?

Children are grouped into three studios, 4 years and 9 months to 6 years old, 7 to 10 years old, and 11 to 13 years old. Children learn best when they are working with those older and younger than themselves.
