Ann Arbor Public Schools Set Tuition For Non-Resident Students

Jul 1, 2014

In lieu of state funds, Ann Arbor Public Schools will charge almost $15,000 tuition for some non-residents. The school board approved the maximum tuition the state allows for students that missed schools of choice enrollment or aren't eligible.

Board President Deb Mexicotte says it could be a good option for families that move to the area in the middle of a school year.  They could pay tuition until the next schools of choice enrollment period for a smoother transition. 

Mexicotte says in the past the district has gotten 5 to 10 inquiries a year but haven't had an option for these students.
