First of all - WELCOME! Good community. Number 71 community in the country according to Money Magazine. The fees at Homan are not actually tuition AND they are common and in line with other area schools. They are a book rental fee. Now if you're like me you think "I pay taxes why am I paying a book rental fee", if you are my Mom's age you might think "my kids are out of school why am I paying taxes for the schools" Homan charges from $118 - $169 a year for these fees depending on the grade level. Extra-curricular activies generally will cost extra as well. Though you indicated no such need, and I'm not implying that "need" is why you asked, IF you need assistance the schools have guidelines for reductions in these fees as well as waivers. School districts are different so for the exact requirements you'll have to ask for the guidelines at the school. You're question may be based on principle alone and not need, and I repeat that I'm not implying need is your concern. It is my pleasure to be of any further assistance. I can be reached on my business cell phone at 219-201-0500. Also, on my web site are some community links which are growing in number and variety, feel free to check that out. I live in Griffith, my office is in Schererville, my work space is wherever people need me. Please call if I can help you or a friend. ... more
