We strongly encourage parents to pay weekly or bi-weekly.

Q. If Roanoke City Schools are closed for weather is the West End Center still open?

A. The West End Center follows the same schedule as Roanoke City Schools, if the schools are closed for any reason, we are closed. If the schools are open, we are open.

Q. Do you offer tuition help?

A. We have two programs that help alleviate tuition costs.


1. Parent Volunteers: you can earn $15/hr off your child's tuition by donating your time at the West End Center.

2. West End Center Community Market Purchases:  100% of food purchases from the market can be deducted from tuition.
