Admissions & Tuition
Tsula Adohi Nature School is a homeschool program. Because an enrichment program cannot be used to satisfy compulsory attendance in the state of TN, children will need to enroll in an Umbrella School to satisfy the state requirement. We are pleased to announce that The Farm School, a category IV Umbrella School in the state of TN, has agreed to provide this service to our families. While parents will be responsible for reporting attendance and pass/fail grades to The Farm School, Tsula Adohi Nature School will provide grades for this purpose and quarterly narrative evaluations to our parents as additional feedback.
We are currently enrolling for the Fall Semester 2022, which will start Monday, August 8th, 2022. We have limited availability for children ranging in age from 9-16 years old.
We hope to add more age ranges as the school progresses, so feel free to reach out to us and be added to our email list for future developments. You can contact us by using our contact form.
We offer two scheduling programs for our families. See below.
Full Time Program
4 Full Days + Open Day on Friday: Open to 9-16 year olds. 9:15 A.M. to 3:15 P.M. Fridays are our open days and are optional. This day is used for ongoing projects or self-directed learning on the farm. Throughout the semester we will intermittently host family days or parent-child days. These special days will invite parents to come share their own gifts, stories, crafts, and outdoor explorations/nature immersion that connect the family as a whole to our work and create a vibrant community of care. Children are welcome from 8:00 A.M – 5:00 P.M. at no additional charge at this time.
Tuition per semester for 4 Full Days + Open Day Program: $5,000 (Scholarships available. Please contact us to discuss.) – Monthly payments available ($1000/mo)

As we progress, we are hoping to offer a sliding scale for tuition based on income and reduced rates for siblings.
