Tuition and Financial Aid

The Value of a CAK Education

For a parent, no investment could be as life-changing and impactful as their child’s education. At Christian Academy of Knoxville, we partner with parents to build the foundation of a Christ-focused community couple with college-preparatory academics. The value of that investment will follow your child throughout life.
Our unique tuition won’t “nickel and dime” you during the year. In fact, nearly every aspect of CAK life is included in your child’s tuition! That includes an all you can eat, catered, locally sourced lunch provided by SAGE Dining. We also include field trips, technology (including our 1:1 iPad program), yearbook, and more!

Affording CAK

There are many ways to afford a high-quality Christian education at CAK! From tuition assistance to discounts, we want to work with you to ensure access to CAK is possible for families who desire a Christian education.
Tuition discounts are automatically available, and you just need to mention your discount area to admissions to be enrolled. Keep in mind that discounts cannot be combined together and they also cannot be combined with tuition assistance. 

Discounts and tuition assistance are available for K-12 students. 5-day preschool is only eligible for early pay or multi-child discounts. 3-day preschool is not eligible for any discount.
