We’re accepting applications for the 2017-18 school year.

We're currently accepting applications for transitional kindergarten through 8th grade, and admit students on a rolling basis. We are also accepting limited transfer applications for the 2016-17 school year, and admit students on a rolling basis.
AltSchool is a network of small, independent pre-K through 8th-grade schools. Each school fosters personalized learning in small environments while benefiting from the larger AltSchool community of students, parents, and educators across the country.

Being in the heart of Silicon Valley affords our students incredible experiential learning opportunities, whether working with Stanford’s Brain Development Project or taking a field trip to The Tech Museum of Innovation.

Admissions Process

Schedule a visit

If you’re a parent who is interested in touring our school, you can request a tour by emailing admissions@altschool.com. Please include the school year you’re interested in applying for.

Apply online

Our application is an opportunity for us to get to know your child and family. There is no fee to apply.

Attend an interview

After reviewing applications, we invite families in for an interview. Your child will spend time with our educators in a classroom setting. Guardians will also have the opportunity to meet with school and admissions team members, and tour the school.

We are accepting applications for the 2017-18 school year for pre-K through 8th grade, and admit students on a rolling basis. If you’d like to be considered for tuition assistance, you will receive instructions to complete your tuition assistance application after you submit the AltSchool online application.

*Please note that we require an evaluation from your child’s current teacher for an application to be considered complete.

Children must be five years old by December 1, 2017 to begin school in fall 2017. If your child is close to the cut-off date, we’re happy to discuss flexible options with your family.

Wait List: Qualified applicants whom AltSchool cannot immediately accept are placed on a wait list. Wait lists are active throughout the admissions period, and candidates are considered for acceptance if a space becomes available. 

Mid-Year Transfers: AltSchool accepts mid-year transfers based on availability at each school location. Please indicate in your application if you are interested in a mid-year transfer.

Tuition and Tuition Assistance

AltSchool’s tuition covers the cost of the regular school day program, including field trips and 1:1 devices. Our after-school programming includes Extended Day and Enrichment offerings for additional fees. Learn more about our after-school offerings.
2017-18 monthly tuition for Lower School and Middle School is $2,845, with a 10-month minimum per year.
