Finances

2019-20 Fees have been set:

Registration fee: $1,600.00 per child

Tuition rate: $4,423.00 per child (either paid for by church or individual family)

The total out of pocket cost per family varies greatly. Our supporting congregations offer gifts toward the tuition rate to encourage members to engage in Lutheran education. Other financial arrangements are available including:

  1. Indiana's Choice Scholarship Program (voucher program) provides scholarship to eligible Indiana students to offset the tuition costs at participating schools. Students must satisfy both household income requirements and student eligibility criteria to qualify. Click here to learn more.
  2. The Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization of Indiana is striving to provide families with funds that will enable them to provide their children with a high-quality, Christian education. Watch the "What's an SGO?" video or click the link above to learn more.
  3. If families choose to pay the tuition fees without a voucher or SGO assistance, they are offered flexible payment schedules via the Promise to Pay worksheet.

Sometimes it helps to break it down. Here are some general scenarios that might help: 

Example 1: Immanuel Lutheran Church family with a 6th grader and 2nd grader, as a family of four has an adjusted gross income of $100,000. This family would be responsible for the registration fee ($1600x2=$3200), tech fee ($150x2=$300), D.C. fee ($50x2=$100), and the 6th grade outdoor ed fee ($75). As members of Immanuel Lutheran Church, their tuition fees are covered by the church budget. Total out of pocket for this family would be $3675. They could opt to pay in one lump sum at the beginning of the year or arrange to pay $367.50 over 10 months. 

Example 2: Immanuel Lutheran Church family with four children (grade 2,4,6,&8) and an adjust gross income of $60,000.  The registration fee for 4 children ($6400) could be covered by the SGO, the tuition fees ($17,692) could be covered by the SGO or Immanuel Lutheran Church. This family would be responsible for the tech fee ($600, due August 1), outdoor ed fee ($75 due September 1), and Washington D.C. fee ($200 due October 1) for a total of $875.
