Tuition and Financial Assistance

As a parent, you understand how important it is for your child to receive an education that prepares them well for college and a career. You want them to attend a school where they will be challenged academically, and grow in Christian character.

A private Christian school can offer your child rigorous academics, competitive athletics, and enrichment opportunities for learning, serving, and leading, but you might be concerned about private Christian School tuition.

At Greenville Christian Academy, we are committed to making an excellent education accessible to families in Greenville, N.C. We recognize affordability is an important consideration for many parents.

Giving your child a worthwhile education is possible!

Affording a Greenville Christian Academy Education

As they are considering school options, so many families approach the cost of private education with one of these strong assumptions:

If this is the tuition, then we can’t afford this school because we don’t earn enough.


We shouldn’t even bother asking about financial aid because I’m sure we earn too much to qualify for any assistance.

In reality, many families with low and high incomes — and all kinds of income levels in between — do qualify for financial aid. 

The Opportunity Scholarship, an income-based financial assistance program offered by the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority, could help you afford a private education. We know that’s one of your biggest priorities — to secure the best education you can for your child, The Opportunity Scholarship provides a clear and straightforward process for determining your financial aid eligibility.

Many families are surprised to find out that an exceptional education really is affordable for them, after all.

$5,779 of financial assistance is awarded annually
per student for up to 20 percent of the student body

“The Learning Academy has given our daughter so many opportunities

that she would not have had at another school. Just as importantly, here she has found community! TLA has been a safe place of comfort as she’s grown and discovered new interests and passions. When she enrolled in 7th grade, we were concerned about if we could afford to keep her here until graduation. With TLA’s tuition aid program, we were able to make it a possibility for our family. We can say with confidence that we made the right choice!”
