How Lutheran High School is Financed

Lutheran High School is owned and operated by seven Lutheran churches throughout Springfield and surrounding areas. As a private, non-profit religious entity, Lutheran High does not receive funding from any national, state, or local government agency. The funds needed to operate Lutheran High School come from three separate sources: church support, tuition and fees, and donations and fundraisers.


Tuition for the 2024 - 2025 school year is $8750

*Association church members are eligible to receive a tuition grant from their church. The grant forms must be submitted by the student directly to their Pastor. The Pastor will then review and if approved, sign and return the form to the student to then submit to the school office. The tuition grant is $1,000 per year and is paid by the church directly to Lutheran High School. This grant may be rescinded by the Pastor for lack of church attendance or withdrawn by Lutheran High if tuition is in arrears. This grant must be applied for and submitted annually with enrollment paperwork.
