• ZigZag is enrolling ages 3 to 12, 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, Monday through Friday, August 28th through May 31st.
  • Partial-week attendance can be arranged.
  • Our school is located on 10 beautiful acres in North Asheville, with woods, a creek, a huge open field, gardens, chicken coop, and an open outdoor classroom. It’s a dream place!
  • Kids are admitted on a 1-week trial basis. It’s a practice that helps figure out whether it’s really a good fit for both the kid and for the existing school community.


  • ZigZag ALC is a non-profit, and is currently only supported through the tuition paid by its families. In determining our tuition, we have tried our best to balance accessibility to as many families as possible, with the ability for the school to actually exist. All of the tuition goes to renting the space, paying for utilities and insurance, providing tools and materials, and paying our facilitators a living wage.
  • The tuition starts at $4,750 a year (which translates to about $6.5/hr). We do not charge any application or enrollment fees. Please use the sliding bar below to find the tuition that corresponds to your income level.
  • If you want your child to attend only 2 or 3 days a week, your tuition will be 2/5th or 3/5th of that amount.
