Tuition, Fees, Scholarships, and Financial Aid
In order to continue providing an excellent education in a safe, Christian environment, the Northdale Lutheran School Ministry Board has developed a tuition and fee schedule which is reviewed annually:
2019-2020 tuition and fees
2020-2021 tuition and fees

Northdale Lutheran School is committed to serving our community with the gospel message. It is our goal to overcome any financial obstacles that may exist for a family so that a child may receive the Christian education we provide at NLS.

Northdale Lutheran School participates in several Florida scholarship programs:
The Gardiner Scholarship and McKay Scholarship are both for students with health-related or special educational needs. In many cases, having one of these three scholarships means that most (or all) of the tuition for a student will be covered by the scholarship.

Finally, a financial aid application is available for families who may not qualify for one of the previously mentioned scholarships but may still be in need of financial assistance.
