Tuition & Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance

Tuition and Fees

Lutheran North offers scholarship awards based on each family's financial needs.  Eligibility is based on many factors including family income, expenses, assets, family size and the number of children attending tuition-charging educational institutions.  

Lutheran North believes each family should be committed to their child's education and should participate in the financial responsibility associated with a Lutheran North Education.  

Application for Financial Aid

A student must submit a completed school admissions packet before Lutheran North will provide a financial aid package. LHSA uses FACTS as an independent third party to analyze financial aid applications and determine assistance need. Apply for financial aid with the link below. The school code is 314. A processing fee will be charged by FACTS to complete the application along with required documents, tax return, W2’s that match the tax return year and supporting documents for that tax return. 

Payment Plans

Students are enrolled by the semester, and thus tuition is charged and due by the semester. Full payment is due by June 30, 2019 for the Fall semester and by December 15, 2019 for the Spring semester unless one of the other two payment options has been established prior to June 30, 2019. You will designate a payment option when you enroll your child. The following options are available:

SINGLE ANNUAL PAYMENT: Full-year tuition may be paid in one payment. A 3% net tuition discount will be applied if full year tuition and fees are received by FACTS tuition by June 30, 2019.

Full payment of the tuition and fees for one semester may be paid through FACTS tuition up to the deadline without any additional charge. The system will automatically set up a payment date for Fall and Spring semesters.

Twelve equal payments are due on either the 5th or
the 20th of each month, beginning in June 2019. If enrolling after June 30, payments will be
divided equally among the remaining months.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Regardless of the payment option chosen, the first tuition payment is due in June. If a payment is not received by FACTS tuition on or before June 30, the student will be automatically withdrawn from school. The late enrollment fee will be assessed and would have to be paid before the student could re-enroll.

Have Questions? We've Got Answers!

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: How can I afford tuition?

    Private school tuition varies greatly across the country and even within the St. Louis area. Students who are confirmed members in good standing of a Lutheran church in the Lutheran High School Association receive a $1200 discount. There are also multiple student discounts for families who have two or more students at Lutheran North at the same time.

    For some families, this tuition amount will seem daunting. While Lutheran North does offer tuition assistance for families who qualify and also awards several one-time and renewable merit scholarships for selected incoming freshman, the cost may still seem unaffordable especially when public school is virtually free. How does a middle-income family afford it?

    Commitment and mindset can be the key. When something as important as Christian education becomes a priority, it is easier to find a plan to make it work. If you believe that a Christian high school education is important in the academic and spiritual development of your son or daughter then sacrifices in other areas become acceptable if not essential. Some parents will need to ask the question: “What less important things can I do without or cut back?”

    It’s a tough thing to take a look at our comfortable lives and the lives of those around us and think about doing without. We’re not all that good at it. But is it worth it for what you can give your child? Committed Christian families, with the Lord’s help, are making it work to send their children to Lutheran High School North. Is it often a huge sacrifice? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Nothing is more important than the daily presence of God’s Word in the lives of your son or daughter. Nothing. The enduring value for your child of the investment you make now is well worth the sacrifice.
  • Q: How many students receive financial aid?

    All funds awarded are grants and do not need to be paid back.  About 50% of students receive financial aid.
  • Q: Are your students awarded college scholarships?

    Our graduates are offered millions of dollars in scholarships every year for academics, athletics, music, and other special talents.
