2019-2020 School Year

Tuition & Fees

Additional information can be found in the Student Handbook

Registration fees cover all of the expenses involved with the school that are not related to the salary and benefits of the staff.  This includes textbooks, school technology upgrades and expenses, paper, copier maintenance, teaching resources, conferences and memberships, ink and toner, etc.  The school works hard to forecast such expenses in advance for the coming year and sets the registration fee accordingly.


  Before 3/22/2019 After 3/22/2019
Preschool - 1 to 3 Days $290 $340
Preschool - 4 Days $350 $400
Preschool - 5 Days $400 $450
Kindergarten - 8th Grade $400 $450


There are also additional fees based on consumption and activities for specific grades.


Preschool & Kindergarten Milk Fee $30
8th Grade Graduation Fee $30
Grades 2 & 3 Swim Fee $55
New Family Application Fee $50
Middle School Technology Fee $125


For new students to begin the enrollment process, we require the enrollment form and $100 of the registration fees.  This $100 holds your child’s place and is non-refundable. Registration must be paid in full on Registration Day, which is Thursday, August 1st.



The tuition that families pay helps to cover the salary and benefits of our faculty and staff, yet the tuition amount does not cover the full expense of educating each student.  The average cost of educating a student in preschool through 8th grade for the 2018-2019 school year was $6,700; however, no family pays that much tuition. The difference is paid by St. John’s Lutheran Church along with the profit from each one of the several fundraisers run by the school every year.
