Tuition and Affordability
Tuition rates are established by the Board each spring for the following year. Tuition reflects the increasing intensity of the partnership at each level, i.e. Grammar is the least expensive program and Rhetoric is the most expensive. There are base administrative and overhead costs connected with each family we serve; therefore, we charge an administration fee (per family) in addition to tuition.
We offer a variety of payment plans, including twelve monthly payments (the most popular). Regardless of the payment plan selected, the total amount due will be the same. There is no incentive for paying by lump-sum, no penalty for paying monthly.
Limited funds are available for financial assistance. Currently, financial assistance is available for (1) single-parent households, (2) households whose primary income is derived from ministry in a church or missions agency, (3) households of missionaries on furlough or home service, (4) households of immigrants or refugees, and (5) households whose income is less than 250% of the federal poverty guidelines. The application process for financial assistance provides two windows to apply throughout each school year.
Financial Assistance Applications are only considered for those who have completed the re-enrollment or new admissions process.
