Tuition & Affordability

Here's why a Lutheran High North Education is more affordable than you think!


We understand that sending a student to LHN is a significant financial investment for a family.  Private schools must charge tuition and LHN is no exception. Lutheran High North believes in high-quality faculty and excellent programs. We believe that we need to provide the little extras that truly make us an exceptional school. We also realize that this raises the cost, but at the same time we know that the cost is worth it. This means that we must find ways to make it affordable for every family.

The goal of our Tuition Assistance Program is to make LHN an affordable educational experience for families wishing to receive an exceptional Christian education.

Each year LEAH Schools distribute a total of over $3 million to students in all four of our schools, Lutheran South Academy, Westlake Prep, LEAH Schools Downtown, and Lutheran High North. Over 50% of the student body at LHN receives some type of financial assistance with average tuition assistance equaling $8,000 per student.  Applying for financial aid has absolutely no impact on admission decisions. Our goal is to support families who demonstrate financial need, which is calculated using FACTS. Recipients of tuition assistance represent a broad range of income levels.

  • Eleven monthly payments to commence in June and end in April, to be drafted the 5th OR the 20th of the month.

Students may not begin the school term without payment arrangements secured and at least one payment submitted.

Customized payment plans may be approved by the accounts receivable manager and will be assessed a $25 monthly service fee, not to exceed $250. 

Scholarships are available for application for incoming freshman only. Applications will be reviewed once a student has applied and been accepted to North Academy.

$300.00 per student
A student is eligible if a parent or grandparent graduated from Lutheran High School (LHS), Lutheran High North (LHN) or Lutheran South Academy (LSA).

We encourage all interested families to apply for tuition assistance!


How do I apply?  Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online through FACTS. *Select the LHN option not LHN ACE

Lutheran High North adheres to a needs-blind admission policy, meaning that a family's ability to pay tuition and fees is not a factor admission decisions.


Do I qualify?
Each family's situation is unique, and the ability of a family to contribute financially is based on many factors, such as combined salary, available assets, or number of children in tuition-required schools. LHN also requires both parents, regardless of their marital status, to submit annual tax returns.


How long is financing available? 

Awards are made for a single year only. Families must reapply for tuition assistance on an annual basis.
