Tuition and Fees

We endeavor to keep tuition stable from year to year, and not to automatically raise it. Find this year’s tuition details here: Tuition and Fees Packet 2018-19 (pdf).

A monthly payment plan is available. Any unpaid tuition balance is paid monthly beginning in August via the FACTS Tuition Management Plan. This automatic payment plan is made through your checking or statement savings accounts. Just click on the link to begin the agreement to authorize the automatic monthly payments on either the 5th or the 20th of each month. There is a small yearly fee per family to set up payments with FACTS. View FACTS FAQs (pdf).

Scholarship Grant (AB165)

AB165 created the Nevada Educational Choice Scholarship Program (often referred to as Opportunity Scholarships), which became effective July 1, 2015. This program allows a family in Nevada to apply for annual scholarships of up to $7,763 per student. It grants K-12 students that would like to attend a private school of their choice the ability to offset tuition cost including textbooks, supply fees and transportation to and from the school. The student must also be a member of a household whose annual income is within 300% of the designated federal poverty guidelines. Apply to one (or more) registered Scholarship Grant Organizations listed below. If you receive approval from more than one, you will need to choose the one that best meets your family’s financial needs.
