Tuition & Financial Aid

Thank you for considering a Christian education at Central for your child. Here we believe children play an important role in God's story for humanity. Even now in their childhood, He is using this next generation for Christ to bring joy to a weary world and restoration to the brokenness around them. We see this every day at Central -- in our classrooms, on the playground, and even from behind their masks. We know you feel their impact, too, in your own families and homes.
We appreciate your desire to not only prepare your child academically for middle school and high school, but to train them to engage culture and impact their generation as described in our Portrait of a Graduate. At the same time, we recognize that choosing a private, Christian school requires many families to sacrifice. Throughout their childhood, you will invest thousands of dollars in caring for your children, helping them thrive, and giving them the right opportunities. Thank you for considering their education as one of the most important investments you can make.

Below you will see our tuition rates, as well as different ways we seek to ease the financial burden of a Christian education at Central. Please dialogue with us about how to make Central Christian School a reality for your child.


Our program offers 3K* through 6th Grade. 3K and Junior Kindergarten (JK) families have the option of enrolling their children in a part-time or full-time program. Students in 3K and JK may attend part-time, three days per week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, for either half days or full days. 3K and JK families also may choose for their children to attend school five full days just as our SK through 6th grade families do. We encourage parents to choose the option that meets the needs of their individual child -- and family -- best, and we're grateful to offer different options as families face different seasons of life. Please note, all of our 3K and JK classes serve more than one program choice and students are assigned a teacher in both grades through our class placement process.

Our tuition for five full days is the same at any age -- whether your child is in 3K or 6th grade. 

*3K is for children who turn 3 by July 31. Junior Kindergarten (JK) is for those who turn 4 by July 31, and Senior Kindergarten (SK) is for those who turn 5 by July 31.

Financial Aid

Central Christian School provides a limited amount of need-based, financial aid for SK-6th families up to 50% of tuition. Financial aid is awarded to current families each February, and to new families each March, for the upcoming school year.

If you're a prospective family seeking enrollment for your child at Central Christian School, your financial aid application is due with your admissions application. Please note that aid is distributed to our first-round of applicants who apply by February 1. After that date, remaining funds will be distributed to qualifying families as they are available.

We partner with Smart Aid, a third-party organization, to manage our financial aid process. After you submit a financial aid application through Smart Aid, your current financial situation will be assessed by them using various factors. They use your assets and liabilities, W2's, and other submitted information to determine what you can contribute toward a Central education. A recommendation is then given to our financial aid committee. All information from Smart Aid is kept confidential.

To help make a Central Christian School education a reality for your family, we invite you to complete a financial aid application on the Smart Aid site. You'll be able to partially complete an application and return to it at another time if that's more convenient for you. Smart Aid provides online, 24/7 support to answer questions as you're entering your information. The Smart Aid application fee is $35 which you must pay at the time of submission.

Tuition Discounts

Siblings of current students receive a 5% discount upon enrollment. This discount is applied to the second, third, fourth, etc. child in each family each year they are enrolled. Also, children of Central Presbyterian Church members receive a 10% discount each year.
