Friends of Down Syndrome is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are able to accept State of Texas reimbursement payments if students are already receiving HCS/THL benefits. If you will be paying privately, tuition is $30 per day per student. We keep tuition low so that we can accept applications from a broad range of students.

As you think about joining our Down Syndrome Academy community, please know that $30 per day per student only covers 68% of our expenses to run the Academy. Therefore, fundraising and Annual Giving are a big part of our organizational culture.
