Tuition Payment Options

For our Preschool through High School students, annual tuition is due on August 1.  For parents’ convenience, this annual tuition may be paid in one, two, or ten installments. 

For students in the Infant Care and Two-Year-Old Programs, annual tuition may be paid in one, two, or twelve installments (depending on contracted start month). 

All installments are remitted through our tuition company, FACTS, for an annual processing fee of $55 for ten monthly installments (or twelve monthly installments for families of infants or two-year-olds) or $25 for one or two installments. 

Auto-enrollment payments will continue to be remitted through our tuition company until families choose to "opt-out".

Financial Aid

Memorial Lutheran School offers need-based tuition assistance to students entering Kindergarten through 8th grade. Donations to our Little Lambs Scholarship Fund makes this possible. All financial aid is based on the need or financial status of the student’s family, the number of qualifying requests received and the amount of financial aid funds that are available. A student must be accepted and pay the enrollment fee before applying for tuition assistance.


FAST is an independent third party that handles all aspects of the financial aid application and verification process. All financial aid monies are awarded by Memorial Lutheran School based on the information provided on the online FAST application. FAST does not award any financial aid, or decide whether financial assistance will be given; rather, FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service to Memorial Lutheran School which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition.

Complete the online application through FAST by February 29th

  • FAST requires a non-refundable fee of $53 per family.
  • All of your financial information will be entered through the secure server.
  • A complete copy of your federal tax return filed with the IRS must be submitted to FAST as part of the application process.
  • If you are separated or divorced, each parent must separately complete the online application and provide a current copy of their tax return.
  • Only completed applications will be available to our financial aid committee for review.
  • Parents will be notified of a financial aid decision by March 31st. 
  • Financial Aid applications received after awards are determined will be considered as funds are available.
