Tuition

2020-2021 Schedule of Tuition and Fees

Longview offers two main educational tracks. Each family can choose the track which best fits with their educational approach.
Individuation and customization is also possible.

Self-Directed Track

Some families prefer to have their children be the captain of their own ship when it comes to their education. Students on this track have no specific course requirements; they can take as many or as few of the classes offered at the school as they so choose. They can combine self-directed projects, self-designed classes and independent activities (playing, reading, thinking, creating, imagining) with Longview coursework. Families on this track tend to believe that no specific knowledge is essential, and instead think that skills learned studying any subject can be cross-applied to other content areas when the need arises.

Academic Track

In their classes, students on this track cover the range of curricular areas including the core subjects (English, Math, Science, and Social Studies/History) plus other required areas such as Art, Foreign Language, and Physical Education. There is time in the students’ schedules to take elective classes as well. Families who choose this track tend to want to be sure their children learn the same skills and knowledge as they would in public school.
