The registration fee is to be paid when the application form is submitted (or re-enrollment request has been submitted via HeadMaster).
Student Comprehensive Fee (SCF)
The student comprehensive covers the cost of most books and supplies, lab fees, testing materials and scoring, school yearbook, student accident insurance, and association fees. This fee is to be paid no later than August 10.
Capital Improvement Fee (CIF)
The $200 Capital Improvement Fee (CIF) paid annually by each school family in two installments, September 1 and February 1, enables the school to accomplish improvement projects. Families participating in any of the scheduled school work days (typically three or four scheduled per year) are able to ‘work off’ the $100 February CIF installment.
All tuition payments are due on the 10th of the month--beginning in August and ending in May. Students attending one or more days of any month will owe the full month’s tuition.

Financial Scholarship Opportunities
Land O’ Lakes Christian School has two scholarship opportunities for qualifying students:
• Step Up For Students (SUFS) is a corporate tax donation program (no governmental funding) providing private school tuition scholarship opportunities based solely on a family’s income. Land O’ Lakes Christian School’s participation in the SUFS program enables families to apply for tuition scholarship using the criteria set in place by SUFS, and to be awarded a letter of acceptance into SUFS, with renewal options each subsequent year. To learn more about the eligibility criteria set forth by SUFS go to www.stepupforstudents.org
or call 1-877-735-7837.
• LOLCS Scholarships are awarded based on financial need as determined by a third-party verification process through Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). Interested participants are responsible for the application fee charged by TADS. The maximum amount of scholarships is not to exceed 25% of the tuition amount and is based on the funds actually available. The family is responsible for all other fees and costs associated with enrollment and school participation. Scholarship participants must reapply through TADS each school year. Interested applicants may ask for scholarship applications from the school office.
