Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance is available on the basis of demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of an education at Concordia Lutheran School, you are encouraged to apply.



School & Student Services (SSS) provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. Recommendations from SSS are used by Concordia Lutheran School to determine the award amount. School & Student Services is a service that works with families and schools to create successful educational opportunities. Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online at https://sss.secure.force.com/familyportal. The $55.00 processing fee is made payable to SSS. Failure to pay the processing fee may delay the evaluation.
