Spring 2021 Tuition Policy

Even in the current climate, the SAS Czech and Slovak School and Preschool is a cooperative effort of its members (we all split the actual costs each semester) based on current and expected enrollments, teacher fees, and heavily or rather, generously, subsidized by grants SAS has received from various donors.  As a relatively new, non-profit organization, we strive to provide quality virtual language instruction while keeping our budget and costs at a minimum. SAS is run exclusively by volunteers – teachers are the ONLY salaried positions in the organization and Board members are not paid or reimbursed in any way.

Unfortunately, we were informed last year that SVU (Society of Arts and Sciences) will no longer be providing us grant money. This is a loss of $5000. Since tuition hasn’t been raised since 2016, therefore, the semester costs are as follows:

  • SAS Membership for 2018-19: Yearly membership dues of $25 per family must be received by
    September 30th.
  • Škola (older children 7-16) families pay an amount based on the following sliding scale for 18 1-hour classes. This is based on salaries, and subsidies from our grant funds for tuition.
      Check or Cash PayPal (includes fee)
    1 child $110 $115
    2 children $140 $145
    3 children $150 $155
  • Školka – will not meet virtually or in person for the Spring semester barring changes to the current situation.

If the churches permit us to meet in person at some point in the semester, we will open Škola / Školka following the church and local guidelines. Please note that a prorated increase in tuition may result.

Please help us raise the necessary funds for when we can meet in person once again by using Amazon Smile. Whenever you purchase on Amazon, please go to smile.amazon.com to generate donations for Slavic American Sokol. Thank you! We wish everyone a safe and successful school year! Please let us know if you have any questions.
