Price per student per year, varies with the number of users and the number of years purchased at a time. Non-profit schools and non-profit training organizations qualify for special school pricing.
Smaller subscribers are welcome to pool their subscriptions with other subscribers, so they can achieve more efficient pricing while still having their own private domains of management. One party must act as the primary subscriber. Just let us know what you have in mind.

Every subscription has a subscription year. For schools, the subscription year runs from school start to school end. For others, the subscription year runs from the starting month for 12 months.
Every subscription has a number of seats for student use. The value of any subscription seat is used when a student uses the account in the current subscription year.
In a given year of subscription, seats cannot be re-assigned unless they are unused. If a user account is created, deleted and purged, without being used in the current subscription year, the unused seat is added back to the subscription as a usable seat, so a new account can be created. As a result, schools don't consume seats for students who may have moved before they used their account.
If an enterprise deletes and purges user accounts that were used last year but not in the current year, the seats are added back to the number of seats available to the subscription.
If you purchase several years of use at one time, subscription seats are renewed each anniversary of the subscription. For example, an account not used since the last anniversary, can be deleted and purged so another student can be enrolled.
