Making the decision to put your child in a private educational setting is a big decision. Firsthand we understand, which is why we don’t want you to have to choose between a good education and paying bills.

Therefore, DSS Board of Directors has implemented the Buy-in Effect, giving families the opportunity to volunteer and be involved in the school for a portion of your tuition.

The Buy-in Effect allows the opportunity to invest your time into your child’s school and lower the financial burden.

With just 4 volunteer days a semester, you can cut down your tuition bill by 25%. This is in addition to any Financial Aid you may receive by the school.

  • Parents are able to lower their out-of-pocket costs by up to 25% using this option.
  • Parents are able to choose positions according to their strengths and availability.
  • This discount ONLY applies to the Annual Tuition, not the Summer Institute Weekly Fees.

Some service options include, but not limited to:

  • Administration
  • Landscaping and groundskeeping
  • Operating the Concession Stands during games
  • Janitorial
  • Accounting (Certification Required)
  • Legal (Licensure Required)
  • Enrichment Support
  • Classroom Aide/Support (Background Check Required)
  • Other, as determined by need

The best part of utilizing this option, is being part of your student’s life within their own environment.
