Student Fees

DSST’s educational program includes components that are not fully funded through public revenue sources, as a result we need to supplement public sources through charging fees to our students. Each fee supports a specific component of DSST’s program, however we do not want there to be a financial barrier to attending DSST therefore fees are not required for attendance at DSST. Families are encouraged to pay at the beginning of the school year but have the option to work out a payment schedule with the front office team. 

If your family qualifies for, or may qualify for, free or reduced price lunch, DSST will partner with you to find an amount that you are able to pay. The reduced fee schedule below is a suggested amount so please work with the front office team to determine the amount you’d like to pay.  

Please note: Additional extracurricular activities may require fees to offset the cost of the club and families will be charged accordingly. 

If you have any questions please contact Erica Aragon at 303-524-6320.
