How does Legacy Christian Academy make tuition affordable for families?
We know that enrolling your child at a Christian school is an investment in your child’s future, and we take seriously our responsibility to partner with you in that investment. The school remains committed to providing a plan for need-based tuition assistance in the form of grants in aid.
Tuition may be paid in full or may be spread out for ten monthly payments. Monthly payments are arranged through SMART Tuition Management through automatic withdrawals. Families paying in full for the upcoming school year may be eligible to receive a 3% discount off the annual total tuition. The school’s business office should be contacted for specifics regarding this discount.
To provide for financial assistance needs in an objective and confidential manner, Legacy has contracted with FAST financial services. Aid is granted based on assessment of need and availability of funds. Requests for financial aid must be submitted annually.
In addition, families can receive an additional discount of $500 for every student who is referred and accepted into Legacy Christian Academy. Call the school office for details on this program What are the school’s hours of operation and is there provision of extended day supervision for students?
