We are not yet able to give an exact amount for the monthly fees, because some parameters are still open (number of students, therefore number of learning guides, amount of rent). We expect a tuition of 500 to 600 euros per month, 12 times per year. Included in the price are:
Open learning, input lessons, self-study time, plenary, mentoring discussions, meditation.

Mo.–Fr. 09:00–16:00 h
Mon.-Fri. 08:00–09:00 and 16:00–17:00 h
This does not include lunch, additional courses, or costs for travel, field trips, and internships.
We take together take care of a freshly prepared lunch every day. Those who wish to participate will pay a contribution of 5 euros per meal to cover the costs. Lunch on all days thus costs about 100 euros extra per month.
Participation in courses is voluntary. The individual courses are billed to the respective course tutors. Thus, the cost of courses is very individual.
As a guideline, we see a total contribution of 40 euros for a unit of 90 minutes, which is then distributed among the number of participants. For example, if one were to attend three sessions a week in groups of five, that would be an additional 100 euros or so per month.
High school students are expected to want to take more courses than junior high school students.
One time fees
To register for the lila.school, a one-time registration fee of 100 euros must be paid. If the admission is rejected, it will be refunded. This fee is to help ensure that only people who actually plan to be part of the launch sign up with us.
In case of successful enrollment, an additional 200 Euro enrollment fee must be paid at the start of school. This contribution helps us cover additional costs at launch.
We would like to approach the ideal of educational equity and get by with the lowest possible monthly contributions. As a private school, we receive only partial support from the state and therefore have to cover a large part of the costs with these contributions.
We will seek donations and grants on an ongoing basis in an effort to provide discounted tuition and scholarships. However, we set the regular contribution level in such a way that financially stable operation is possible in the long term even without this support.
Transparency is important to us. We will therefore make our current budget visible to all contributors so that it is clear to see what we use the money for. We mainly use it to finance the salaries of the learning guides and the rent, but it also covers other expenses.
