Student Admissions

Clover Community School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender, or gender expression in admissions, administration of its educational policies, hiring, or other school administered programs.

Costs and Subsidies

As an independent school, we receive no government support and therefore all costs to operate our school must either be borne by the students or through the generosity of philanthropists. 

 

Our 2021-22 Annual Tuition is:
 

- Kindergarten: $14,000

  (plus $350 curriculum fee)

 

- Lower School: $14,000

 

- Upper School: $14,500

 

Families may pay tuition in full at the beginning of the year or set up installments of 4 or 10 payments. 

(processing fees will apply to installments)

Requirements

We admit students between the ages of 5 and 13 years; students must turn 5 prior to August 15th for admission to Year One. Students may be no older than 13 years old for admission to

Clover Community School.  Students over the age of 13 who attend our Lower School may join our Upper School Program but we do not admit first time students over age 13.

As a community-based school we require a minimum of twenty volunteer hours per semester per student family.

(other requirements will be discussed with families as necessary)

Admissions Process

Outline of application process for Clover Community School:

  1. Families interested in a Clover education should first talk with a representative of our school to determine if our Clover fits their child’s needs.  

  2. Prospective family tours
    Clover Community School

  3. Family completes/returns the application with app. fee

  4. Clover staff will review completed application

  5. Schedule Prospective Student's Shadow Day (see below)

  6. Clover staff will determine Admittance or Denial  

  7. Follow up paperwork, payments and information will then be provided

 

Shadow Day: If application is preliminarily approved, prospective students must shadow at our school for, at least, one (1) half day. This will give the prospective student a chance to engage with the teachers and other students and provide an opportunity for Clover staff to analyze best-fit for the prospective student. Clover Community School is intentional about the community we build so we must meet each student before we can determine an official admittance/denial.
