Financial Assistance:
Families applying for financial assistance must complete an online application form and submit necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. FACTS is a confidential, online, assessment tool that assists LCA in determining the financial need for current and new families. Financial assistance is provided from budgeted school funds and is based on availability. The financial assistance process requires completion of your current year federal taxes. If you have a unique situation and wish to apply for financial assistance prior to the completion of your current year taxes, please contact the business office at the school. Please note, preschool classes do not qualify for financial assistance.

Level 1 Financial Assistance: Families applying for financial assistance must complete the online application, pay the financial assistance application fee assessed by FACTS, and submit/upload all necessary documentation to FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment via https://online.factsmgt.com/aid. Financial assistance applications need to be fully submitted to FACTS by April 15 and aid will be awarded as verified but no later than mid-June. Due to budgeting and planning needs, awards will be decreased by a minimum of $250/child for any applications submitted to FACTS, from current or new families, after April 15. Late submissions will also result in delayed award notification and carry the potential for reduced award amounts. For re-enrollment after April 15th, the financial aid application must be completed no later than two weeks from the enrollment date to qualify for financial aid.

Level II Financial Assistance: If additional financial assistance is needed after completing the Level I process, a Level II application can be completed (available upon request). A maximum of 50% of total tuition can be awarded under Level II. (Families must complete submission of the FACTS Level I application process prior to applying for Level II funds).

Before/After Care Programs:

Before Care (no cost) – provides care for students before school from 7:15-7:50 am in the cafeteria.  After 7:50 am students can go to their classrooms.  After Care– provides care for students after school until 5:30 pm in a classroom.

A student who is signed in for After Care beginning at 3:15pm will automatically be billed an $8 fee/child. Children remaining after 4pm will be charged a program rate of $18/child/day.

Students in preschool – grade 6 must be signed into After Care if they remain on campus after 3:15pm.


Tuition Discounts: (please contact the Business office for information on any of the following)

Multi-Child Discount (MCD) – see the Tuition Table for the tuition breakdown for multiple children.

LCA Alumni Discount- parents who have graduated from LCA or attended through the highest grade level offered at the time of enrollment receive a 10% discount. This is a family discount, not per parent. This discount cannot be combined with our Pastoral Discount.

Pastor Discount – full-time practicing, ordained pastors receive a 25% tuition discount.

Mileage Discount – mileage reimbursement is facilitated to ISD 709 residents only.  If you live in another school district, contact the district office for mileage reimbursement details.

Child Care Assistance Program – we are a licensed provider for preschool-aged children and qualify for government funding.


Tuition Payments:

Tuition payments can begin for the upcoming school year in June prior to the start of the school year to extend payments over a 12-month period of time.  All parent accounts must be paid in full by May.  The expectation is that all monthly payment plans are handled electronically.  Annual and bi-annual payments can be made directly to the business office.


Textbook Fees:

All students (preschool thru 12) are charged for consumable textbooks at LCA on an annual basis.  Textbook fees vary from grade to grade, but plan on $50-$450/year.  Any textbooks (softcover or hardcover) that are lost or destroyed during the school year will be billed to the parent account the amount of the replacement cost. Technology fees will be determined closer to the beginning of the school year.
