General Financial Information

While the benefits of Christian education far outweigh the cost, Engleside is very conscious of the expense to parents. The administration and teaching staff perceive their work as a labor of love, accepting wages far below their secular counterparts in the public education realm. Moreover, Engleside Baptist Church graciously underwrites many of the operational costs associated with the school. Therefore, ECS currently offers an annual tuition just under $6,000 per student. And we greatly appreciate the financial sacrifices made by parents who choose Christian education at ECS.

Parents partnering with ECS should be prepared financially for the following costs on an annual basis:

  • Registration fee: this non-refundable fee covers the administrative work associated with preparing for the coming school year. Registration fees are due with the student application form for the school year.
  • Material & Activity fee: this non-refundable fee covers a variety of items including textbooks, student insurance, ODACS membership dues, and materials associated with student participation in the classroom. The M&A fee is due annually July 10th or upon acceptance into ECS (whichever occurs later).
  • Tuition: ECS annual tuition is calculated primarily to cover the cost of salaries and benefits for the teaching and administrative staff. This total is divided into 10 equal payments payable by the 10th of each month from August through May. Discounts apply for multiple siblings. ECS releases monthly billing statements throughout the year.
  • Extended Care Fees: these fees are passed on to registered users of our AM and PM care programs. Like tuition, these fees are divided into 10 equal payments and are billed on a monthly basis. There is no discount for multiple siblings in extended care. Students needing extended care on an occasional basis may “drop in” by notifying ECS in advance; ECS will add drop-in fees to the next month’s billing statement.

Additional information about ECS financial policy is available in the Student/Parent Handbook.
