Tuition and Fees
There are four objectives/principles that are central to determine how tuition is calculated:
- Keep tuition as low as possible
- Consider Teacher compensation
- Cover all operational expenses with tuition
- Wrap all costs into a single tuition fee
Christ’s Legacy Academy is accepting donations, but the school desires to not depend on any donations to help cover operations. Also, we will not use tuition income to cover anything but the “Operational Budget”. This is vital to keeping tuition as low and as affordable as possible.
**Please keep in mind that the more students we have, the lower tuition costs will be.
In light of all of this, the following is the tuition schedule for the 2018-2019 school year:
$5250 per school year
Grammar School (Kindergarten – 6th grade)
Logic School (7th – 9th grade)
Rhetoric School (10th – 12th grade)
Scholarships and Discounts
If our tuition exceeds your ability to pay, please apply for financial aid. CLA raises donations to help cover financial aid every year. If this is your situation, we require you to submit a scholarship application through FAST, (our online 3rd party service that evaluates financial need). Please note that the maximum discount on tuition is 50%.
Need-based scholarships are available that can result in tuition assistance for qualified families.
Tuition discounts are available to student(s) of Pastors and CLA teachers.

Over 40% of our student body receive some type of financial assistance each year. In order to assist families in providing a Christ-centered, classical education, CLA provides 10% of income and need-based scholarships for a limited number of qualified applicants each year.
