At Lakeway Christian Schools, we strive to deliver an affordable Christian education based on your household income. We believe every child should have the opportunity to have a Christian education, so we work with you to offer assistance to qualifying families with students in grades K through 12th.
* Early Enrollment Discount:
All current families are a part of our continuous enrollment program and therefore benefit from a 40% discount off the enrollment fee. This discounted enrollment fee is automatically billed on a set date. This discount is only available to current families who remain continuously enrolled.
** Financial Assistance Program:
The tuition listed above is our maximum tuition. Our financial assistance program allows families to pay different amounts based upon financial need and therefore, all families are encouraged to apply for financial assistance to determine their exact tuition plan. We use the FACTS Grant & Aid program to verify each family’s situation and recommend an award amount. Income taxes must be uploaded. All families have to re-apply every year for the financial aid assistance. (There is no financial grant & aid available for Pre-K classes)
All students are required to pay an annual facilities fee. This fee is an investment in the maintenance of our buildings and grounds. This fee may be paid monthly or in one payment. Students may be given opportunities to offset this fee through a variety of different programs.
Multiple Student Discounts:
If you have multiple students enrolled at LCS and you don't qualify for the financial aid assistance with FACTS, you qualify for the multiple student discount. The first child will pay the regular price. The second child will receive 10% off the tuition. The third child and beyond will receive 15% off the tuition price. If after applying to FACTS Grant and Aid, a family with multiple children would do better to not accept the award and take the standard multi-student discount, this would be acceptable.
FACTS Tuition Management gives flexible options so that you can select what works best for your family. Automatic payments can be made from a checking or savings account or from a variety of credit cards. In the event that full payment is not received by a week after the scheduled date, a $25 late fee will be applied to the account.
Dismissal by the school, absence of the student, or withdrawal by the parent of the student, shall NOT diminish the obligation to pay the total and full amount of ALL tuition and fees due the school for the entire school year as set forth by the LCS Board of Directors. Any exceptions to your financial obligation must be approved by the LCS Board of Directors.
To more efficiently serve our families, we are now using a continuous enrollment program. This program confirms your commitment to having your student continually enrolled at Lakeway Christian Schools and eliminates the need to re-enroll each year. This agreement starts with your first year of enrollment and shall automatically renew for each successive academic year, until your student graduates from LCA or until you notify us otherwise. An annual enrollment fee will be automatically billed to your account on a set date. If you choose to terminate this agreement, your written notice must be received on or before an announced date.
