Tuition Rates Information for 2017-18
Tuition at St. John's is a family's contribution toward the funding of our teacher salaries, classroom supplies, textbooks, technology, fees and facility operations.
How can St. John's offer low cost tuition?
St. John's Lutheran Congregation, through the power of the Holy Spirit, chose to focus on Education as its number one mission. Because of this, your student is able to attend a parochial school for only a third of the cost to educate a student. The majority of our funding comes from the contributions of our congregation.
St. John's also relies on school family giving through the Annual Dinner Auction, PTL fundraising, volunteer support and monetary gifts and donations. St. John's school families also give back to St. John's through our 4 for the Lord volunteer program and by generously giving talents and resources to help meet the needs of the school. Our students demonstrate their dedication by singing in church and participating in school service projects.
It is important for us to thank St. John's Lutheran Congregation for their dedication, and to do our part as member of the St. John's Community. It is because of others who have come before you that St. John's Lutheran School is here today.
