St. Mark’s Lutheran School is funded through a combination of tuition paid by the students’ families and support from St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. Our full cost of education is about $8000 per year (2018-19 rates), but the church subsidizes about 30% of that amount.
Tuition rates vary, depending on the grade level of the child. Base tuition for grades 1-8 is $5500. Junior kindergarten (JK) is a half day program; therefore, tuition is $2750 (half of the rates charged for K-8). The base rate for kindergarten (K) is $3850. For all grades (JK-8) a discount of 15% is given to the second child from the same family; the third child receives a 30% discount.
Families that belong to St. Mark’s Church receive an additional tuition discount.
All families (member or nonmember) may apply for tuition aid. Awards are based on need and availability of funds.
Families that pay tuition in full in August receive a 3% discount. Otherwise, tuition may be paid in ten monthly installments (August – May).
Generally, tuition at St. Mark’s will increase by a moderate amount every year. Families that have questions about tuition and fees may contact the school office for general information from the school secretary or the principal.
