Tuition and Fees

Let's make this work!

Think you can’t afford private school tuition?

Think again. Trinity Christian School proudly offers Variable Tuition. Tuition at Trinity is not “one-size-fits-all.” It’s a range. A range that spans from $7,375 - $14,750 for grades K through 6 and $9,550 - $19,100 for grades 7 through 12. Variable Tuition adjusts tuition rates to meet your family’s unique financial position. No family at Trinity Christian School pays the full cost of education.

What is Variable Tuition?

Variable Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition that is right for their financial situations, making a Trinity Christian School education affordable to many qualified students who could not otherwise join our school community.

Variable Tuition makes Christian education accessible to more families by charging a tuition rate based on a family’s specific financial situation. Variable Tuition is a need-based financial aid structure. Any family in need of financial help may apply. 

This is the best thing we've ever done in our lives for our children.
