2024 - 2025 Tuition and Fees

Christian education is foundational for the formation of faith, academic excellence, and preparation for a life of service and leadership. For those reasons, the congregations of Emmanuel and St. Michael strongly support the ministry of ESM.  We believe that quality Christian education should be available to every family that is willing to commit to such a partnership.  The full cost of education at Emmanuel - St. Michael Lutheran School is over $8,800.  However, thanks to the support of two congregations and many scholarship and grant opportunities available to parents, no student tuition is equal to the full cost. 

The association congregations of Emmanuel and St. Michael strongly support the operational costs of education.  This Eagle Congregational Support enables every child to receive $2,000 toward the cost of education.  This leaves a total tuition responsibility of $6,800 per child for all enrolled families, regardless of church membership or number of children. 

Scholarships Available

We believe every family should be able to afford a Christian education for their child if that partnership is desired. For those who need some extra financial help, various forms scholarships are available. Last year, over 80% of our students received some form of scholarship. Visit our SCHOLARSHIPS page for more information on Indiana School Choice, SGO, and other Need-Based and Independent Scholarships. 

Tuition and Fees Worksheet

The ESM Tuition Model is structured in such a way that families will elect their intended tuition plan (A, B, C, or D) in their online enrollment application. To estimate your family commitment for tuition, families are encouraged to review the ESM K-8 Tuition and Fees Policy and complete the ESM K-8 Tuition and Fees Estimate Worksheet and Plans, available below. This worksheet will be an important tool for families to determine their intended Tuition Plan (A, B, C, or D) that will be selected during the online enrollment application. This worksheet is for your personal planning purposes only. 

Payment Choices

During the summer and before August financial registration, fully enrolled families will receive a tuition statement. Families may choose to pay in full, semi-annually, or monthly according to the schedule. These arrangements are made at registration along with the first tuition payment.
