Think you can't afford a quality Christian education?
Variable Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition that is right for their families’ financial situation. Thus, this makes an St. Timothy’s education affordable to many qualified students who could not otherwise join our school community.
Any family (current or new) of a junior kindergarten through fifth grade student may apply for Variable Tuition if they are concerned about affording the full tuition rate at St. Timothy’s Christian Academy and they think they may qualify for the program. Many factors are considered when determining the tuition amount a family is able to pay, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family. The resources available for the family in a given year must also be considered in light of the Variable Tuition awards available at St. Timothy’s.
Typically within 2 weeks of providing all required information to our confidential third party service.
During the “Early Decision” and “Open Enrollment” portion of our Application Timeline the cost to apply for Variable Tuition is $45.

Many factors are evaluated, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family.
No. Every family is required to make a financial investment in their child’s education. Our commitment to providing Variable Tuition means that we are sharing in that investment with you. No family will receive Variable Tuition that is less than our published range.
No. Unfortunately, the school does not have the ability to offer Variable Tuition to every student who qualifies for both admission and Variable Tuition. A student may be admitted to the school but placed on a waiting list for Variable Tuition. It is recommended that families apply for Variable Tuition as early as possible.
