Financial Aid

Applying for Need-based Financial Aid

Lutheran North uses an independent, third-party (FACTS) to analyze financial aid applications and determine assistance need. Eligibility is based on many factors, including household income, expenses, assets, family size, and the number of children attending tuition charging educational institutions. Each case is evaluated individually.

FACTS Assessment

A student must submit a completed school admissions packet before Lutheran North will provide a financial aid package. Financial aid applications are now available for middle school for the 2023-2024 school year. 

Lutheran North uses FACTS, as an independent third party, to analyze financial aid applications and determine assistance need. Apply for financial aid with the link below for either middle or high school students.
Middle school code is 37395.

FACTS will charge a $35 processing fee when you submit your application. In addition, you will need to be ready to submit copies of Federal tax returns and supporting documents to show your income, including W-2s or 1099s if applicable, and proof of any financial support.
As part of a student's financial aid package, Lutheran North will offer scholarship awards and grants based on students' achievements, recommendations, and backgrounds.

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: How can I afford tuition?

    Private school tuition varies greatly across the country and even within the St. Louis area. Students who are confirmed members in good standing of a Lutheran church in the Lutheran High School Association receive a $1200 discount. There are also multiple student discounts for families who have two or more students at Lutheran North at the same time.

    For some families, this tuition amount will seem daunting. While Lutheran North does offer tuition assistance for families who qualify and also awards several one-time and renewable merit scholarships for selected incoming freshman, the cost may still seem unaffordable especially when public school is virtually free. How does a middle-income family afford it?

    Commitment and mindset can be the key. When something as important as Christian education becomes a priority, it is easier to find a plan to make it work. If you believe that a Christian high school education is important in the academic and spiritual development of your son or daughter then sacrifices in other areas become acceptable if not essential. Some parents will need to ask the question: “What less important things can I do without or cut back?”

    It’s a tough thing to take a look at our comfortable lives and the lives of those around us and think about doing without. We’re not all that good at it. But is it worth it for what you can give your child? Committed Christian families, with the Lord’s help, are making it work to send their children to Lutheran High School North. Is it often a huge sacrifice? Yes. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Nothing is more important than the daily presence of God’s Word in the lives of your son or daughter. Nothing. The enduring value for your child of the investment you make now is well worth the sacrifice.
