Designed with access in mind.

Denver Lab School uses a sliding-scale tuition model, which allows us to create a community accessible to a wide range of families from a variety of backgrounds.​We have developed this model in partnership with other independent schools leading the path toward providing an equal access for all students and families to a high-quality education. 


During the admissions process, families will submit a confidential financial worksheet that will be used to determine each family’s tuition level.​ For the 2022-2023 school year, our tuition will not exceed $22,500 with most families paying far less than that.
