Annual Non-refundable Registration Fee

Each year, parents or guardians must pay a non-refundable registration fee per child at the time of registration. 

Tuition Payments

All monthly tuition payments must be made one month in advance by the first of the month. For example, the September payment is due on August 1st. The October payment is due on September 1st. You can pay your child's first month of tuition at the time of registration. 

9-Month Payment Option

Tuition payments begin in August and conclude in April of the following year. That equates to 9 monthly payments. This option is available to families with children in preschool, Kindergarten - 8th grade.

10-Month Payment Option

Families with children in Kindergarten - 8th grade may reduce the monthly payment amount. In this case, you will make 10 monthly installments rather than nine. Payments begin in August and continue until May of the following year under the 10-month option.

Days in August

We do not demand any additional payment for the August school days. The rationale is as follows. Those days are compensated by vacation and holiday breaks during the remainder of the year. There are no discounts on days when classes are not in session due to vacation or holiday breaks. There will be no discounts for days missed or due to late payment.

Pay Tuition and Fees on Time

Trinity Lutheran Classical School's financial stability depends on funding from student families. Regular, on-time payments guarantee our ability to pay wages and other operating expenditures on time.  If you have not paid the monthly payment before the first of the month, your child will not be able to attend until we receive it.

Payment Options 

Make checks or money orders payable to Trinity Lutheran Classical School. Tuition and fees must be sent or delivered in person to the church office.

Tuition Discounts


Returning Students

Trinity Lutheran Classical School offers a 5% discount to any returning Kindergarten - 8th grade student(s). That policy does not apply to students enrolling in our three-day preschool program who had previously attended our two-day preschool program.

Families having two or more children enrolled at Trinity Lutheran Classical School will receive a 25% discount for the youngest child. If there is a third child enrolled, the youngest child will receive a 50% discount in addition to the 25% discount for the second child.

We offer a 15% discount on one child's tuition for any family where one (or both) parents are confirmed members of Trinity Lutheran Church, LCMS or another Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregation. We will apply the 15% discount to the eldest child's tuition.
