What does PHS cost?

2024–2025 Membership Fee

Before you can register for classes at Planet Homeschool, you must first join our co-op or renew your membership.

  1. $52 per family for Fall Term (September–December)
  2. $52 per family for Winter and Spring Term combined (January–May)

Our co-op’s membership fee is subject to change should our co-op’s expenses change substantially.

This membership fee pays for our co-op’s:

  • rent (~45%)
  • liability insurance (~40%)
  • website fees (~10%)
  • other overhead costs (~5%)

Percentages vary because these expenses vary.

Membership renewal invoices are automatically created for all current members shortly before class registration opens for the following semester.

If your membership has lapsed, you’ll need to request a membership resumption invoice.

2024–2025 Tuition and Supplies

There is no minimum number of classes. Students may register for one to four in-person classes per term as well as for a variety of online classes.

Tuition varies by course and instructor, typically from $8 to $16 per hour (or $10 to $20 per 75-minute class meeting):

  • typically $120–$240 for a 12-week 15-hour Fall or Spring Term course
  • typically $40–$80 for a 4-week 5-hour Winter Term course
  • typically $280–$560 for a 28-week 35-hour Full-Year course
    • tuition for full-year courses is usually paid in two payments (for fall and spring terms)

Supplies fees also vary by course and instructor. Many classes do not have any additional fees. Those that do typically charge from $10 to $50 per term. Supplies fees are invoiced with tuition and paid as a lump sum.

Some courses have required textbooks or other required supplies that students must purchase independently.
