Our tuition and fees only cover a small portion of what it actually costs to educate a child at St. John Lutheran School. The actual cost exceeds $7,000 per full-time student each year. However, our congregation is traditionally quite supportive of our school and the ministry it provides to our community and contributes about 60% of our total expenses. The remaining cost is covered by tuition, voucher income, etc. We try diligently to keep our tuition as low as possible so that any family who desires a quality, Christ-centered education for their child might have the opportunity to do so. Financial aid is also available for any family that applies and meets the qualifications.
