Tuition and Fees
What does PHS cost?
Our co-op’s annual membership fee is used to pay rent, insurance, website fees, and other overhead costs.
- $90 per family per year, payable as:
- $45 for Fall Semester
- $45 for Spring Semester
Students may register for 1 to 4 classes per semester.
Tuition: Varies by course and instructor, from $8 to $16 per hour (or $10 to $20 per class meeting):
- $120–$240 for the 12-week 15-hour Fall Semester
- $160–$320 for the 16-week 20-hour Spring Semester
- $280–$560 for the 28-week 35-hour Full-Year Course
- tuition for full-year courses is typically paid in two payments (for fall and spring semesters).
Supplies and other fees: Varies by course and instructor. Many classes do not have any additional fees, those that do typically charge from $10 to $50 per semester. 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.
To renew your membership, update your Family Profile when prompted and pay your membership renewal invoice when created. Membership renewal invoices are typically created (and emailed) either shortly after the course schedule for the coming academic year is finalized and/or announced or 1 to 2 weeks before class registration begins. “Force Profile Update” is triggered at approximately the same time.
