Tuition / Financial Aid

Every student receives the Messiah Scholarship

The cost of a K-8 education at Messiah is $8,235 and we are blessed that no family pays the full tuition. Every student receives the Messiah Scholarship, and many receive additional scholarships through their congregation, need-based aid, or other scholarship funds. The result is a variable tuition rate, ranging from $0 to $6,305 per year, in which no family pays more than they can manage, and every family benefits from a meaningful investment in their child's future.

Additional Scholarships Available

1. Active Member Discounts
Active Members in the Messiah Lutheran Church congregation receive an additional scholarship of $1,350. This is in addition to the $1,930 Messiah Scholarship, provided to all Messiah students regardless of congregation membership.
2. Partners in Ministry Scholarships
Messiah seeks to offer an outstanding Christ-centered education to its members and to others in the Christian community. While we encourage Messiah families without home congregations to consider membership at Messiah Lutheran Church, it is not our intention to attract transfers from other Christian churches in the area. We encourage those families to remain active members at their churches and offer Subsidies and Referral scholarships of up to $1,350 through our Partners in Ministry program for members of other congregations.
3. EdChoice Scholarships
Through the Ohio EdChoice Scholarship program, full scholarships are now available to incoming Kindergarten through fourth grade students who qualify based on income.
