Affording Ascension Lutheran Elementary School
As a private, non-profit institution, Ascension Lutheran Elementary School recognizes and understands that the investment in sending your children to a private, Christian school often reflects a significant commitment and sacrifice by the family.
We seek to price our annual tuition and fees appropriately. We are also committed to offering need-based financial aid to support families of students who are academically qualified and enrich the mission of our school. Our 2021-2022 tuition for grades TK-6 is $10,500 with a registration fee of $650 and a materials and technology fee of $300. All payments are made through TADS. Church member and multiple student discounts are offered.
Financial Aid Program
Our financial aid program provides tuition assistance to students of Ascension Lutheran Elementary School whose families would otherwise be unable to afford the full tuition amount. This program is available for new and returning students in grades TK-6.
New families and any family who has a student currently enrolled is eligible to apply for financial aid. New families can apply at the same time as completing an admissions application; currently enrolled families must submit financial aid applications by March 1 for the forthcoming school year. All families receiving financial aid must reapply each year.
Families may receive aid grants in subsequent years that are greater or lower than a previous year’s grant. Families will be notified of the financial aid decision approximately four weeks following the deadline or within four weeks of submitting an application.
Ascension Lutheran Elementary School utilizes TADS Financial Aid Assessment Service to process financial aid applications. TADS charges $39 for each application. All aspects of the financial aid process remain confidential.
Use the button below to access TADS and the Financial Aid Application. Also provided through TADS is a Financial Aid Worksheet to prepare for the financial aid application process. TADS representatives are available to answer questions abut their online application process at (800) 477-8237 on weekdays between the hours of 6 AM - 6 PM Pacific Time.
