Part Time Students

Yes, we enroll students on a part time basis. Generally, these students come from a homeschooling background and are used to working independently. We are happy to discuss part time options with you if you contact us with your specific needs.

Additional Activity Fees

Our students have the option to attend two primitive skills camps, one at the beginning and one at the end of the school year. We will conduct fundraisers throughout the year to pay for these camps, but students may be asked to pay the balance for their enrollment if they cannot raise the necessary funds. Students may also have opportunities to attend tournaments and events outside of Missoula. Again, we will do as much fundraising as possible to keep costs for these events affordable.

Payment Plans

Students must enroll on a quarterly basis. Each quarterly bill may be split into two parts due before the 1st and 5th week of the quarter. The advising fee must be paid prior to enrollment in the first quarter. This fee is nonrefundable and will not be prorated for students who enroll or withdraw midyear.


We have a limited number of 50% scholarship available for families who qualify for free lunch. Please ask about it for more information. These families can also offset their tuition an additional 40% by performing work-trade hours. In special circumstances, members of the co-operative may receive additional tuition assistance to cover the entire cost of attending Aspire. It is LWM, INC’s mission to provide opportunities for all students, regardless of ability to pay, so please contact us if you would like to discuss scholarship options.
