Tuition & Affordability

Investing in the best possible start for your child’s education is invaluable. The critical early years are when students become inspired to learn and motivated to succeed, and important study, social and emotional skills are established. The investment in an Independence education pays off. With a reputation for being well-prepared, Independence graduates are accepted into their top choices for high school, and many receive generous scholarships.

Our boys have been so happy and are enjoying their teachers and making new friends. Upon picking up our youngest son recently, he got in the car and exclaimed, "I love it here!" Our family is so happy to be part of the Independence community.
