Information About Tuition and Tuition Assistance


The yearly cost of tuition at Cross Lutheran School for K-8 students is $1,700 for one child and $800 for each additional child.  This is a fantastic deal for a private education!

The members of Cross Lutheran Church are very dedicated to the ministry of the school and generously support it.


There are many opportunities to decrease the already low cost of tuition!  Scholarships are available and easy to apply for!  Scholarships can cover up to ⅓ of the cost of a family’s tuition.  In some circumstances larger scholarships may be awarded.

Cross Lutheran School is a participant in the Scrip program.  Scrip fundraising allows you to lower  your tuition costs just by using gift cards for your everyday shopping.  When you buy a Scrip card, a certain percentage gets paid to the school and is deducted from your family’s tuition.  Percentages range from 1%-20%, depending on the store.  There are over 700 stores that take part in the Scrip program, including department stores, restaurants, gas stations, clothing stores, and even local businesses. See a complete list here. The great part about this program is that you earn money toward your tuition simply by making everyday purchases. It doesn't cost you anything extra!  Since this is a nation-wide program, family and friends from across the country can take part in it and help earn money for your child’s tuition.  You can order Scrip cards online or through the school.  The school places Scrip orders every week.  Click here to learn more about the Scrip program.


There are other fundraisers that our school’s Christian Education Association (CEA) does during the school year.  These include pancake breakfasts, a school carnival, Krispy Kreme Donut sales, and more.  By taking part in these events, tuition costs can be reduced even further.
Don’t let the cost of tuition be a reason not to enroll your children at Cross Lutheran School.  As you can see, there are many ways to make the cost extremely minimal.  Many families have paid for almost all, if not all, of their tuition through scholarships, fundraisers, and the Scrip program.  If you have any questions about tuition assistance, please email schoolinfo@crosslutheranschool.org.
