The actual cost of educating a student at C.S. Lewis Academy is almost 20% higher than our school’s cost of tuition. This difference is deliberate in our goal to make C.S. Lewis Academy as affordable as possible, to anyone who desires a CSLA educational experience. This gap between real cost and tuition income is bridged each year through the generous support of donors to our Annual Fund, and participation in various fund raising events. We are able to fulfill our mission of Preparing Students for Life by partnering with people like you who believe in what we are doing.
The CSLA Fund is our annual giving program, sometimes referred to as our CORE donors. While many donors elect to give monthly, others may give annually or on other payment schedules. In any case, these donors do make up the foundation of our fundraising efforts. We could not run C.S. Lewis Academy successfully without this critical assistance.
