The Fenster School Provides Potential Students with New Tuition Options

The Fenster School, a boarding school for teens located in Tucson, Ariz., has changed its tuition payment system to accommodate families that need a solution for their troubled teen but are facing economic struggles.

Due to the steady decline in the economy and its impact on most families, Fenster has eliminated any standard, published tuition rates to make way for new alternatives for boarding school tuition. Discount, payment plans and scholarships are now offered as options, and each student's tuition is negotiated with the headmaster on a case-by-case basis.

"We understand the unfortunate situations the poor economy has created for many families and wanted to make sure that parents could still view boarding school as an accessible option," said Fenster Headmaster Don Saffer. "We've responded to the economic situation with solutions that can work for every family in need of our services."    

The Fenster Boarding School is a structured and disciplined educational environment designed for students facing challenges at home or at school. They cater to students who exhibit the inability to meet their academic potential due to lack of motivation, who refuse to follow rules in any environment and who perform well at school but do not fit in well at home for various reasons. Fenster is also an ideal placement for students who are studying English as a Second Language (ESL), in need of boarding because parents work overseas or wanting to earn college credits while in high school.

"Using structured academic and behavioral systems, our goal is to see students earn all the core credits necessary to gain acceptance to virtually all of our nation's colleges and universities," said Saffer. "We believe the expectations at Fenster help our students begin the journey of achieving personal success."

The Fenster School admits students who are in immediate need of the boarding school structure at any point in the school year.
