2021-2022 School Year

Tuition & Fees

Additional information can be found in the Student Handbook

Registration fees cover all of the expenses involved with school that are not related to the salary and benefits of the staff.  This would include textbooks, school technology upgrades, and expenses, paper, copier maintenance, teaching resources, conferences and memberships, ink and toner, etc.  We have tried to be as fair and accurate as possible in our forecasting, as these expenses vary from year to year.

The tuition that families pay covers the salary and benefits of our faculty and staff. This is certainly not the full expense of running a school and educating each student. The average cost of educating a student in preschool through 8th grade for the 2021-2022 school year was $7,300. Not one family pays that much tuition per child. The difference is made up by St. John’s Lutheran Church and profits from each one of the several fundraisers run by the school every year.
