Investing in Your Child’s Future

Thank you for considering a Christian Life School education for your family. For most families, investing in a private Christian school education requires careful financial planning. As you will learn through the admissions process, families find great value in the Christian Life educational experience and the distinctive way in which we prepare our students for the future.

As a school, we seek to admit talented and motivated students, regardless of family resources. Central to preparing our students for this world is creating a socioeconomically diverse academic community. In fact, research has proven that a diverse environment leads to better learning outcomes for all students. Therefore, families who feel the full tuition cost is out of their reach should not hesitate to visit or apply to the school. We are here to help you determine the best options for your family with this very important educational investment.

Think you can’t afford a quality Christian education? With an annual tuition that is one of the lowest in the region, Christian Life School is committed to providing a quality Christian education at an affordable price.

Preschool Tuition for 2019-2020

There are several options for our K2-K4 Preschool classes. We have a Traditional Plan allowing for year-round care and wrap around care for families who need full-time care.

Families who choose a Calendar Plan will follow the Christian Life School Elementary calendar including Christmas, spring, and Easter breaks, early dismissal days, parent-teacher conferences, and teacher in-service days. Current copies of the CLS Elementary calendar are available in the CLS main office. Children will be dropped off in their classroom at 8:30am and picked up promptly at 3:30pm (or 12:30 for half day children). This tuition option does not allow for wrap around care.

Both plans allow for full-time and part-time enrollment. All Traditional Plan fees are listed as monthly.

Scholarships

Cpl. Richard Nelson Scholarship Fund

Cpl Richard NelsonEach year, the Cpl. Richard Nelson Scholarship Fund helps several CLS families who otherwise cannot afford a quality, Christian education. The scholarship is a $1,000 gift that is awarded based on need and will be used toward CLS tuition.

In 2008, Marine Cpl. Richard Nelson died when the vehicle he was in hit a roadside bomb in Iraq. He is the son of Lennie and Susan Nelson, our former superintendent, and the husband of Kristen (Fedler) Nelson. Both Ricky and Kristen are alumni of Christian Life School. In memory of his sacrifice and love for Christian Life School, the Nelson family established the Cpl.

Please join us in supporting our Christian Life community by donating to this important scholarship.
