Tuition & Fees

Our goal at Shalom Christian Academy is to provide an excellent education while keeping tuition as reasonable as possible.

The 2017-2018 tuition reflects an average 2.9% increase across each of the schools. Kindergarten tuition is at a significantly discounted rate from elementary. Tuition for elementary students is at a lower rate than middle and high school students. To prepare each student for a life of consequence in the world for the kingdom of God. (1)Shalom’s tuition is all inclusive – the total cost includes all fees so that payments are simplified for parents. Tuition covers less than 80% of the full operational costs of the school.

 

A non-refundable application fee must be submitted with the application. The fee is $100 /student through May. Beginning June 1 the fee is $125/student. Beginning August 1 the fee is $150/student. Shalom does not reimburse fully for early withdrawal.
