Tuition Explanation

The most affordable private school in Tampa!


Real Life ALC is primarily supported through the tuition paid by its families. In determining our tuition process, we’ve focused on a few important ideas — trust, access, and responsibility.

The culture of an ALC is rooted in trust. We are committed to developing relationships of trust with students, among the facilitators, and certainly with our families.

Real Life ALC Tampa seeks to be available to people based on right fit, not income level, so we offer tuition fees on a sliding scale.** By trusting families to be generous and reasonable we increase our accessibility.

As we grow, we try to balance accessibility with sustainability. We are always looking at our tuition process to make sure we’re being responsible to our current families and to the future health of the school. This requires balancing the need for enough to maintain the fiscal viability of the school with the limited space for accepting new students. 

Below is our tuition chart, designed to help you gauge your recommended annual tuition amount. 

Annual tuition is divided into 10 monthly installments, payable from August/September to May/June. Upon acceptance for admission, parents/guardians will be required to submit a payment of the first and the last month’s tuition (or a lump sum if paying semester/year up front) prior to the student’s first day of school.

First sibling’s tuition is 50% off, and 70% off of full tuition for each additional sibling.

Flexible drop-in option: $60/day or $30/half day (this is for those who can not commit to a full month or year.) Please fill out an enrollment form and note the flexible option.

**If your family finds it necessary to discuss our sliding scale options, please let us know when you contact us or mention it when you fill out an enrollment form.
