Tuition & Financial Aid


Wolf River Lutheran High School remains firmly committed to making Christian secondary education affordable to any family that desires to be a part of our school. Like most Christian schools, we don’t rely solely upon tuition to pay the bills. To do so would make enrollment too expensive for virtually any family. In fact, the average cost to educate one of our students exceeds $13,000 and yet our current tuition rates are only $4,105 for students of association churches and only $5,105 for non-association students. The remainder of the income is generated through church association dues, donations, adopt-a-student sponsors, fundraisers, etc. To be blunt, you get far more than you pay for even if you pay full price.

The best news is that MOST families don’t pay full price! We aggressively work to provide financial assistance to any family that is willing to formally apply and qualify for a reduction in tuition. We also offer interest free payment plans, paid-in-full discounts, work service credits, and multiple child discounts to help ease the burden.
