Tuition Assistance & Subsidies

In our effort to increase accessibility to AfterSchool Labs programs, we strive to reduce economic and other logistical barriers to participation wherever practicable.

Discounts & Allowances

AfterSchool Labs offers discounted tuition for families with multiple participating students. In general, A-Labs provides a 10% discount on tuition and registration fees for a second participating child and a 15% discount on tuition and registration fees for each participating child beyond the second.

Please note, discount rates are subject to change. For confirmation multi-student discount rates at your child(ren)’s school, please Contact Us.

Tuition Subsidies

On behalf of our clients and student-families, A-Labs coordinates directly with the Alabama Department of Human Resources Childcare Management Agency (“CMA”) and Family Guidance Centers to facilitate tuition assistance for qualifying families. The CMA childcare subsidy program is a terrific initiative with potential to Child Care Fact Sheet

  • Children for whom the Department of Human Resources has custody of and who are in foster care.
