Many families are surprised to find out that a Judah Christian School education really is affordable for them after all.


We know one of your priorities is to provide your child with the best education possible. At Judah, our heart is to make Christian education accessible to as many families as possible. We know you value the curriculum, the culture, and the way education at Judah will prepare your child for life, but it also has to make sense for you financially. 

JCS is a private Christian school that charges annual tuition and fees. In an effort to make an academically excellent, Bible-based education available to as many mission-appropriate families as possible, families of students in Kindergarten through Twelfth grade may apply for need-based assistance through our Variable Tuition Program.

Elementary School Student


We work with families to provide discounts AND Variable Tuition awards. 

A Christian education is affordable for most families, but many families are surprised to find out how affordable it really is for them. Many families start with, "How can we make this work?" or "Wow, this seems impossible.", but with the help of God's provision and the amazing team in our business office, you can afford to have your student at Judah. We've had numerous families leave the office pleasantly surprised once they learn more about payment plans, available discounts, and how tuition is structured. Don't walk away from exploring what your child's future could be like. Stop by and have a discussion so we can guide you through your options.


As you prayerfully consider Judah Christian School, we welcome your questions about Tuition, Variable Tuition, scholarships, payment plans, or whatever comes to mind. The Office of Admissions is here to help guide you through the process so you can feel confident when applying to Judah Christian School.
