Tuition & Assistance

Tuition

SCA is a private school, and tuition and fees support a portion of the operating expenses. The remaining cost to provide the high-quality education SCA provides is contributed by constituent Seventh-day Adventist churches and donations from alumni, families, and friends.

As shown in our School Handbook, tuition for the 2020/21 school year is $5,200 ($520 per month for 10 months) for grades TK to 5th and $5,700 ($570 per month for 10 months) for grades 6th to 8th. Payments are due on the 1st of each month from August through May, and may be paid with our automatic payment program, through Adventist School Pay, or by cash or check to the school. Payments may also be split to accommodate multiple payments (for example, a payment may be split between the student's family and another family member supporting tuition expenses or a payment may be split between a student's parents if they are paying separately). If you have questions about tuition or payments, just let us know. We are happy to help!

Discounts

SCA provides a number of discounts to our families:

  • 5% discount for full tuition payment received by August 15th.
  • 5% discount for families with two or more students enrolled at the school.
  • $10 monthly discount ($100 per school year) for families using the electronic check/ACH of our automatic payment program.

Please Note: Discounts do not apply to families receiving financial assistance.

Financial Assistance

SCA offers tuition assistance to students based on qualifying factors as determined by the online FACTS program, with final review and determination of qualification determined by the School Board Finance Subcommittee.

The amount of funds available for allocation may vary from year to year, and early application is recommended as money may no longer be available for late applicants. SCA will begin processing applications on June 30th for early applicants. Students must be registered for school in order to be considered for tuition assistance.
