Sunday School

Sunday School 

We strive to make our Sunday school as affordable as possible while also paying our staff wages with dignity.


Folkshul is a member run co-operative. One way we keep tuition down is by having our adult members contribute their time to the school's operations. Co-op shifts include being on a holiday committee, fundraising, serving on the board, helping with set up/break down, or contributing a unique skill. 


A limited number of partial scholarships are available each year. To contribute to our scholarship fund or request a partial scholarship please email us at
