Tuition is based on a 10-month payment plan.

  • A 5% discount is given if the 2015/2016 tuition is paid in full by July 1, 2016 (cannot be combined with other discounts or Tuition Assistance).
  • A 2% discount is given if the 2015/2016 tuition is paid in full by August 12, 2016 (cannot be combined with other discounts or Tuition Assistance).

Curriculum Fee*  

The curriculum fee allows Gethsemane’s teachers to purchase the most up-to-date materials, text books and classroom requirements in preparation for the upcoming school year. *Members of Gethsemane Lutheran Church who attend at least 50% of Sunday worship services qualify for a curriculum fee waiver.

Multi-Child Discount

Gethsemane offers a discount for families with more than one child enrolled in Preschool-7th grade at Gethsemane.  For these families, the first student is full tuition and each additional student receives a 10% discount off of tuition.  The higher tuition amount is paid and the lesser tuition amount is discounted. Multi-child discount cannot be combined with any other discount or tuition assistance.

Tuition Cap

Gethsemane Lutheran School has a tuition cap in place for school families.  Families with multiple children attending GLS will not pay more than $12,500 for tuition in total.  Families that utilize the tuition cap cannot apply any other tuition discount to the cap.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance for Kindergarten through 8th grade is available through the Tuition Assistance Committee. Grants are given on the basis of family need, circumstances and available funds. Applications are available at the school office. Application deadline is April 15, 2016. *** Full Day Childcare Program is not eligible for any discount ***
