Inclusive Tuition Philosophy

University Lake School’s tuition is inclusive of most fees and costs associated with each student’s comprehensive education. You will not be asked to pay additional fees for field studies, textbooks, student parking or athletic and co-curricular involvement.

Annual tuition encompasses:

  • All textbooks
  • Technology support
  • Academic field studies JK-12
  • Off-campus leadership trips starting in 5th grade
  • On-campus and local intersession courses for Upper School students
  • Full participation in on-campus athletic programs (except costs for cooperative teams and personal equipment)
  • Full participation in fine arts activities (except costs for theatrical costumes)
  • A copy of the annual school yearbook

Note:  Though tuition covers the costs of most Intersession Trips, Upper School students who wish to participate in international or domestic trips outside of Wisconsin must pay an additional fee. Payments for these trips may be made on a schedule in the amounts of $500 per month, September to November, with the remaining balance due in December.

In addition, during the course of the school year, students may have a choice of optional trips and activities, beyond the base curriculum, which may incur additional student fees.
