Over the 12 years of its existence, Every Child Counts has met the financial and human challenges of continuing to provide for struggling children. However, the challenge has been and continues to be a difficult one. Not only yearly but permanent funding is still needed to ensure the continuation of services to our students.
The actual cost to educate a student at Every Child Counts is $6170 per child per school year. During the last 5 years we have maintained an average enrollment of 100 students. ECC continues to charge only $1650 per year tuition due to the financial constraints of the majority of our students’ families. Only 10% of the subsidized tuition is actually collected. The remainder is met by donations.
