Tuition and Scholarships
Affording an independent school education is possible for families of many income levels. Unfortunately, some families do not consider independent schools like LCA due to the high cost of tuition. We firmly believe that the cost of an independent school education should not be a deterrent to prospective families. We have multiple ways of working with families to assist them in making an education here possible.
An integral part of our mission is to promote socioeconomic diversity among our student body. To achieve this goal, the school allocates more than $1.7 million of the annual operating budget to financial aid and scholarships. This portion of the operating budget is supported by gifts to LCA’s Academy Fund by parents and other donors as well as funds from the Academy’s endowment. These funds help many of our families bridge the gap between what they can contribute financially and the actual cost of attending LCA.
