As an independent school, HillSprings Academy does not receive funding from local or state governments. To offset educational expenses, we charge tuition for each student. However, tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating each student. Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends provide funding that supplements tuition and ensures HillSprings’ financial strength.  Payment plans are available.

*Please note - We do not "hold" spots for any student(s).  A non-refundable deposit of $500 for Academic Year, $250 for Summer School, Homeschool Program, or After-School Tutor Program is required to ensure your child has a slot in one of our programs.  Should your child be on the waitlist and a space does not open by the time classes start, your deposit is fully refundable. 

Because HillSprings utilizes an intervention model, some families may qualify for a medical tax deduction on tuition and/or mileage to and from the school. Please consult your tax advisor to learn more.

We recognize the financial investment in HillSprings is a significant expense for many families. Qualified students should not be deterred from applying for financial reasons and families applying to HillSprings are considered without regard to financial circumstances, giving all applicants equal opportunity for acceptance. Through payment plans and need-based financial aid, we work toward making the HillSprings community accessible to children with diagnosed learning disabilities in Colorado.  Parents are invited to apply for student financial aid grants through TADS.
