Tuition and Fees

*For a limited time, we are still accepting applicants for the second semester of the 22-23 school year.*  The original full cost of tuition was $9,400 for all grade levels (K-8) but is now being prorated. Please email if you wish to apply for the 22-23 year.

Priority enrollment for the 2023-24 school year is now open!

For priority admission consideration, we ask that applications, all supporting documentation, and interviews be completed by March 3, 2023. Please allow three weeks' time for the interviews to be scheduled.  The first round of financial aid awards will be distributed to those families who have completed the full application process by our early admission deadline of March 3, 2023.

Rolling Admission Enrollment

  • After the priority admission deadline, applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. 

  • After completing the application process, applicants will be added to the waitlist if classes are full.


The cost of tuition for the 2023-24 school year is as follows, with no extra curriculum, material or supply fees:

  • Kindergarten:  $7,500

  • Grades 1-5:      $8,900

  • Grades 6-8:      $9,400


Tuition payments are made on a 10-month schedule beginning in July. However, at the time of acceptance, a non-refundable enrollment deposit of 10% of the cost of tuition/child will be required to hold your child’s spot. (This deposit will be applied to the overall tuition balance.) A $100 non-refundable fee is required when submitting an application online for a new student.


We don’t want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to give their children the best education available to them.  To that end, we offer various discounts and financial aid:

  • Teachers: Full-time teachers may receive 30% off the cost of student tuition, if applicable.

  • Pastor Discount: Full-time pastors may receive 25% off the cost of student tuition.

  • Active U.S. Military and full-time First Responders (Fire, Police, Rescue) receive 10% off of student tuition.

  • Multi-Child Families. There is a 10% multi-child discount. The first student pays full price and subsequent enrolled siblings receive 10% off of tuition.​

Early Full Payment. Families receive 5% off tuition *on top of these other discounts if the full tuition payment is received by July 5.

Financial Aid Process

Interested families may apply for financial assistance through our third-party, FACTS.  Please note they will charge a $40 fee per family when submitting the request.  Proceed with the student admission application first, then apply for financial aid.  (The Financial Aid link is available on the "Apply" page or here: )
