TUITION
Chesterton Academy is committed to keeping tuition affordable for our families and view this as central to our pro-life mission.  Tuition for the 2016-17 academic year is $6,995 per student with a $375 book and supply fee.  We extend discounts for siblings, and financial aid is available to families with demonstrated need. The actual cost to educate each student exceeds tuition charged. Each family is expected to help with fundraising to cover the balance of the costs in the budget.
