The Best Value for Your Tuition Dollars

Welcome to the most visited page on our site: The Tuition page! We appreciate the fact that making a decision about a superior education includes hard thinking about affordability in no small way.

“You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” – Deuteronomy 6:7-9

Enrolling in CCS follows the Lord’s desire for your children and gives testimony to the level of concern for the heart and mind of your child.

We want you to know that CCS’ tuition is based on the diligent examination of every detail necessary to provide what we call a Premier Scholastic Experience. We encourage you to compare our tuition rates and all we offer to other area schools. We believe you will agree that we are providing the best value for your tuition dollars, making you not only a committed parent, but a good steward of the resources the Lord has provided.

Thinking About Tuition

It's not uncommon to consider a published rate only to learn later that there are additional costs. But at CCS:
  • Tuition may be paid in full for an additional 2% discount.
  • Monthly, quarterly, and semester plans available without additional finance charges.
  • Multiple student discounts available.
  • Tuition includes all textbook fees for K – 12.

Financial Assistance

Do you desire a Premier Scholastic Experience for your child, but are concerned about your ability to afford such an education? Know that it is our mission to provide a Christ-centered, academically excellent education to every student at a price that fits the family budget.

While tuition at Cherokee Christian Schools is 30% lower than some area schools, we understand that there are still families that face financial realities which make it impossible to attend a high quality school like CCS. Therefore, we have made it part of our mission to create tuition levels that meet the needs of our community.

CCS’ incredible range of tuition levels makes what may have seemed to be impossible, possible! The key to your access to a high quality school such as Cherokee Christian Schools is found in our tuition ranges that align with your Household Adjusted Gross Income. Your Household Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) can be found on line 11 of your federal tax return. Please note that the scholarship schedule applies to non business owners. If you are a business owner or have three or more students, and have a need for financial assistance, you may apply here.
