Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees 2024-2025

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.

There is a registration fee of $100 (non-refundable) for each child enrolling in SJL. The registration fee must accompany the application form and is applied to tuition. Some programs, such as middle school band, have additional fees.
Tuition fees are reviewed and set annually by the School Board. Children of LCMS pastors, teachers, and other professional church workers from sister congregations may attend SJL at the same tuition rate as our full-time staff.
