Understanding Tuition at Compositive Primary

To offset educational expenses, we charge tuition for each student. Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating each student. Gifts from parents and friends provide funding that supplements tuition and ensures Compositive’s financial strength.

Compositive Primary is committed to reflecting the diversity of the surrounding community. We have a designated number of Flexible Tuition spots available each year for new families. These spots allow us to establish a tuition level that reflects the family’s verified adjusted gross income and other important financial circumstances. 

Compositive Anschutz Campus Scholarships

Through generous philanthropic support, Compositive Primary is offering Compositive Anschutz Campus Scholarships. The commitment to Compositive Anschutz Campus Scholarships is ongoing and will continue throughout your child’s time at Compositive. Apply for the scholarships by submitting financial information, which includes the most recent tax return and two recent pay stubs for each parent/guardian.

At Compositive we are committed to serving children and families and invite you to apply. 

We recommend beginning the enrollment process early. Applications for 2024-2025 are now available.

1. The process of determining tuition begins with the submission of the family’s financial information including tax documentation from the prior year.

2. All information provided will be kept confidential.

3. Families may opt to pay full tuition if they prefer not to share their financial information.

We recognize the financial investment in Compositive may be a significant expense for many families. Through payment plans, we work toward making Compositive accessible for many families in the community.

There are three interest-free payment plans from which to choose. All plans require a 10% non-refundable deposit with the enrollment agreement, which will be applied to the remaining payment(s) due.

Compositive tuition rates include books and all school supplies. Student meals are not included, and optional before and after care enrollment include supplemental fees. There is also a $50 non-refundable fee per family for our billing service with Tuition Management.
