  • Pay in full by July 10th to receive a $150 discount
  • Pay by semester to receive a $50 discount ($25 credited by July 10th and $25 credited by January 10th)
  • Full-time pastors receive a 50% discount on their children's tuition 

Payment Plans

       12-month payment plans are available. Students who are seniors in high school will have an 11-month payment plan.

Grant & Aid Program (financial assistance)
