Tuition & Financial Aid

As an independent school, Lakeview Academy does not receive funding from local, state or federal governments. To offset educational expenses, we charge tuition for each student. However, tuition alone does not cover the cost educating each child. The School’s Annual Fund which includes gifts from alumni/ae, parents, grandparents, and friends help to underwrite some of the school’s operating budget. The tuition for each academic year is determined by the Board of Trustees in December.

Tuition Discounts
Families paying more than one tuition in grades 1-12 are eligible for the following tuition reduction:
  • Second fully paid student, 5%;
  • Third fully paid student, 20%;
  • Fourth fully paid student, 35%;
  • Fifth fully paid student, 50%.
The oldest student is considered the "first" student and the second oldest student is considered the "second" student, etc.  These reductions are based on the A plan and are applied equally over the payment period. Family discount may not be used toward the deposit.

Payment Plans (for grades 1-12)
Lakeview offers three convenient payment plans for families with children in grades 1-12. Please contact the Business Office at 770-531-2656 for further information on these payment plans or email Angela Presley.
