Tuition and Financial Aid

The Value of a CAK Education

For parents, no investment could be as life-changing and impactful as their child’s education. At Christian Academy of Knoxville, we include items in our tuition pricing that are often extras at other schools. We also offer a wide array of standard discounts, available to anyone who qualifies, as well as a tuition assistance program.

Tuition Includes

Lunch by SAGE Dining  1:1 iPads for Preschool-8th grade
Yearbooks Full-Day Preschool Program
Class t-shirts and most school supplies for preschool - 5th grade √ Student admission to athletic events for non-playoff home games

Affording CAK

Think a CAK education is out of reach? There are many ways to afford a high-quality Christian education! Ask our admissions team about CAK's standard discounts for qualifying families or our tuition assistance program.

Standard Discounts

Tuition discounts are available. To qualify, you'll need to confirm your discount area with the CAK business office and CAK will apply discounts for those who are eligible. Keep in mind that discounts cannot be combined and they also cannot be combined with tuition assistance. 

Discounts are available for K-12 students. 5-day preschool is only eligible for early pay or multi-child discounts. 

List of 5 items.

  • Early Pay Discount

    • Pay in full by July 10 to receive a $150 discount
    • Pay by semester to receive a $50 discount ($25 credited by July 10 and $25 credited by January 10)
  • Multi-Child Discount

    Parents with multiple children (siblings) in the same household will receive the following sibling discounts:
    • 5% off the second child's tuition
    • 10% off the third child's tuition
    • 20% off the fourth child's tuition
  • CAK Faculty and Staff Discount

    Current employees, please see Human Resources for details
  • CAK Alumni Discount

    Parents who are graduates of CAK receive a 15% discount for their legacy children.
  • Pastor Discount

    • Full-time Pastors: 35% which applies to a max of two students (must be actively employed by a church)
    • Bi-vocational Pastors: 15% discount (pastors who actively serve part-time in a church and hold another full-time job)

Tuition Assistance

CAK's tuition assistance program is similar to the college financial aid process. Applying for tuition assistance will not affect your admissions or enrollment process, and we encourage our families to apply early because awards are made on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tuition assistance is not available for preschool students. If you have specific questions, reach out to Beth Mozingo at
