The total HLCEP tuition per child for 6 weeks is $450.00. However, through the Hmong Gala Dinner fundraiser, we are able to make the tuition cost affordable for parents. Instead of $450, you only pay $75 per student per week. This includes tuition, a home-cook Hmong lunch, and two snacks daily.


Limited scholarships are available for parents who are sending three or more students or those with special financial circumstances. Scholarships are a first-come-first serve basis.

Tuition Reduction

Parents can volunteer at HLCEP or at the Hmong Gala Dinner which all volunteered hours will count toward a tuition reduction. For example, a parent who earns $200 worth volunteer hours will receive a $200 tuition deduction. Please send email to if you are interested.
