Tuition & Fees

School Year 2011-2012

The mission of Propeller Academy is to provide Christian education that is innovative, relevant, affordable and life-changing. Private Christian schools like Propeller receive no tax dollars. Instead, we rely on strategic partnerships between families and donors who desire to connect and invest in the lives of the next generation. Our tuition covers our basic needs, but in order to advance Propeller’s God-given vision, we need generous support from businesses, foundations, churches, families and individual contributors. A gap exists between the real cost of educating each student and the tuition charged. Each year, all families are expected to make a tax-deductible contribution to the annual giving campaign to help bridge this gap.

Comparable schools are charging $10,000 for this type of education. We discount our tuition rates at the following levels to allow more families to participate, and are committed to inspiring generosity to offset our costs. Our donors can receive tax benefits for supporting our school.
