2024-2025 Tuition + Fees

Our Approach

Chesterton Academy is committed to offering an outstanding high school education at an affordable cost to families.

We keep tuition as low as possible to bring a classical, Catholic education to every family, regardless of income.

Low Tuition

Our tuition is extremely low relative to other nearby private schools, which charge $14,000 - $19,000 per student, per year for high school. 

For the 2024-2025 school year, our tuition is only $9,500 per student with a $650 book fee. That makes our tuition half what other schools charge.

Enormous Discount

Our goal is to remain affordable, which is why our tuition is far less than what it actually costs us to educate each child.

It costs Chesterton roughly $15,100 to educate each student. Given that our tuition is only $9,500, this means every student receives an immediate tuition discount of $5,600 (37%), even before any other financial aid.

How are we able to do that? It's thanks to generous donors, who believe in the mission of the school and want to keep tuition affordable for families. They supply the difference each year.

Financial Aid for ALL Students

Every student at Chesterton can also receive scholarship money through the State of Florida, distributed through the Step Up for Students program. These scholarships, for which every student now qualifies regardless of family income, provide money to help students attend any private school of their choice—including Chesterton Academy!

Chesterton students receive an average of $7,200 per year in scholarship money through Step Up for Students, which covers a significant percentage of their tuition.

Thanks to that scholarship, most families only spend between $2,000-$3,000 per student out of pocket, including tuition, books, and supplies.

In the end, we never want money to be a limiting factor for enrollment. If you and your child desire to attend Chesterton Academy, please contact us and we will work with you.
