Chesterton Academy has a $12,400 per-pupil cost for 2021-22. The Target Tuition Rate (TTR) is $8,085, among the most affordable high schools in the metropolitan area. 50% of the students attending Chesterton Aid are seeking additional financial aid. The typical family seeking financial aid is capable of paying around $3,800 per child, which would require a Total Aid Package (TAP) of $8,600. The average Family Tuition Rate (FTR), or the average amount of tuition a family will pay at Chesterton Academy is $6,500.
It is our goal to make sure tuition levels don’t ever prevent a child from growing their faith during the crucial teenage years. Enrollment trends are telling us there are families who would embrace the opportunity to attend a school like Chesterton Academy if they were not experiencing economic uncertainty.
Each year there are approximately twenty students seeking admission that are placed on a financial aid waitlist because they are unable to pay 50% of the cost. The success or failure of spring fundraising efforts often determine if the students will be attending the school in the fall.
