Enrollment & Tuition

Before enrolling at RTS, we request that all these steps are followed to ensure that we are the right fit for you and your family:

Enrollment Process

Step 1: Research

Please take time to review our FAQ page, our Values page, and our Further Reading resources to better understand the philosophies and research that inspire the learning environment we create. We also suggest reading some past Monthly Messengers for a glimpse at a day in the life at RTS.

Step 2: Tour

If you like what you're learning and you're curious to know more, please schedule a tour here.  Tours are strongly encouraged for all who are considering enrollment. Tours are an opportunity to show you around campus and answer any questions that come up. Tours are designed primarily for parents, however children and youth are welcome to join as well.

Step 3: Apply for Trial Day

After a tour you will be sent a link to apply to schedule a trial day. If RTS feels like a good fit for your family, apply for the trial day. Once the application has been submitted and your child is eligible, your child may be added to our waitlist or invited to schedule a trial day when space is available. The trial day is an opportunity for your child(ren) to experience first-hand what a day at Rock Tree Sky is like. It is also an opportunity for mentors to observe and learn more about your child.


Please review our Family Handbook prior to your child's trial day. 


Step 4: Sign & Return Enrollment Agreement

Provided that space is available and we are in agreement to move forward, you will be emailed an enrollment agreement which you will be requested to review, sign and return to our Admission Coordinator along with your deposit. Enrollment agreements can be returned via email ( or can be delivered to our office on your child's first day at RTS. 


Rock Tree Sky is committed to being an economically diverse community. We work with families of all financial backgrounds and offer assistance to make RTS widely accessible.
