Tuition Information

The investment of Christian Education at Central Minnesota Christian School is paid by our parents.  The tuition rate is established by the Board of Directors each year. 

Tuition rates are all-inclusive. There is no extra charge for busing, athletics, etc.  Hot lunch is an additional fee and is optional (see fees below).  We strongly encourage parents to pay the full cost of tuition.  For those unable to pay the full cost of tuition, we have a program for tuition assistance which parents can apply for by completing an online application through TADS (a third party tuition aid assessment). The TADS minimum adjusted tuition due will be 35% of the full tuition amount.  Additional fundraising is undertaken to cover those costs that are over and above the amount covered by parent-committed tuition.

*Tuition is adjusted annually.

THE QUESTION IS...."How do parents feel about tuition?"


Central parents, Ben & Crystal Donner, share their honest perspective about the investment of tuition...

"To be completely honest, the cost of sending our four children to a Christian school seemed a bit daunting. But after experiencing what Central Minnesota Christian School in Prinsburg has to offer our children, we feel it’s one of the best investments we as parents could possibly make.

The small class sizes, the compassion of the teachers, and the quality education in a Christ-centered environment….we couldn’t be happier with our experience at Central Minnesota Christian School."
