Registration for the 2024/25 School Year

We thank you for your interest in attending Zion Lutheran Church and School. Below is some basic information concerning cost and steps to register. The yearly rates for the 2024/25 school year are $350 for registration and $1530 for tuition. 

Our congregation has always been willing to support the institution of the Christian Day School so children may benefit from a sound Christian education. The cost of education in our school is around $6610 per child per year. Currently Zion’s congregation is contributing 77% of this cost. Our congregation’s mission is to continue to support the majority of these costs but will be decreasing the amount annually with a goal of 70% by 2026. If you are interested in arranging a school visit please contact the office.

Financial Aid

Zion offers Financial Aid for families that would benefit from such help. We value Christian education as a congregation. We do our best to maintain a tuition program that is feasible for the demographic area we serve. One of the challenges when dealing with financial numbers is that they are impersonal and do not always tell the accurate story of real families. Since we desire all families to have a Christ-centered education, no matter their financial situation, we have partnered with TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services) as a third-party resource to determine financial need and gifts.
