Investing in your child’s future


“In teaching at university I had two students that stood out from the others- they thought creatively, they were driven by curiosity, and were the only ones who seemed able to ‘thinkoutside the box’. They were both graduates of the Shambhala School. When my kids were ready for school, the Shambhala School was only natural.”

Dr. Tarah Wright, Shambhala School parent and university professor

Tuition Assistance
The Shambhala School welcomes a diverse population. Some of our students receive financial assistance to attend. Decisions to offer tuition assistance are based on the family’s financial need, offer of non-financial support to the school, and the school’s capacity at the time of the request. Please contact us if you are interested in our school and need tuition assistance for your child to attend.
