High Meadow School's Work Exchange program has been a vehicle for families to lower the cost of tuition through offering the school critical professional skills and support for its operation. Work Exchange is defined as a parent, guardian or family member providing skilled services to High Meadow with remuneration received in the form of a credit toward tuition. Work Exchange plans can be combined with financial assistance to further reduce tuition costs beyond the 50% cap on financial aid awards.
Work Exchange Compensation is at a non-profit rate and does not necessarily reflect market value. This remuneration is documented at the end of the calendar year as non-employee compensation Form 1099 and submitted to the IRS.
Work Exchange projects must be completed in a calendar year running from March 1, 2023 to March 1, 2024.
In the past, work exchange has been offered for the following school support:
- Communications Support
- Professional Development for Staff
- Teaching 7th and 8th Grade electives, afterschool, or child-caregiver classes

We encourage parents and guardians to propose any ideas that fit their areas of expertise and may benefit the school program.
