Tuition

Tuition

Tuition is made up of three components:

  1. $500 Enrollment Fee*
  2. Materials Fee
  3. Tuition Fee (according to the chart below)

* This fee is paid the first year and never again; even if, for instance, your family transfers with the military and then moves back.

GradeOne EnrolledTwo EnrolledThree Enrolled
Primary Elementary (PK – 4th)$5100.00$9690.00$14,280.00
Intermediate Elementary (5th/6th)$5250.00$9975.00$14,700.00
Middle School (7th/8th)$5575.00$10,592.50
High School (9th – 12th)$6100.00$11,550.00

All prices per year (August – May)

Discount of 10% for each additional family member.  Discounts are calculated after the most expensive tuition is billed. (For example:  The oldest child is in high school, so the first tuition amount is $6,050.  Add to this any additional child or children at the rate of $5,017.50 for middle school students, $4,725.00 for intermediate elementary students, and $4,590.00 for elementary students.)

Extended day fees:  $100 per month per child (no discount for multiple children).

Materials Fee:  Each student will need to pay $50 annually for school supplies.  There is no need to go to the stores to get school supplies.  All are provided by this $50 charge. (Backpacks, lunch boxes, and water bottles are not considered school supplies.  You will need to purchase these if required.)

Payment Methods

All tuition is due in full by the first day of school. Students whose tuition has not been paid by one of the two options below by the first day of school will not be admitted to classes until the tuition is paid.

Option 1:  Pay the full amount due by the first day of school.

Option 2:  Set up automatic drafting from your bank account through us.  There will be ten automatic drafts, each taken on the 1st of the month for ten months.  We can draft from checking, savings, or debit accounts.  In the event that one of the ACH’s is declined or otherwise returned unpaid, there will be an immediate 10% additional fee added to the payment amount for that month.  A second declination will require the remainder of the tuition to be paid in full immediately.  Failure to do so will constitute a breach of contract and attendance is no longer possible.

Terminations of contracts for the following reasons are NOT breaches of contract:

  • Job transfer (moving your family more than fifty miles from Lawton)
  • Loss of major income by involuntary methods
  • Death (of student or family member that causes family to move)
  • Other reasons that are decided on a case-by-case basis by the administration.

Should your family need to terminate the contract early for one of the above reasons, we will refund the unused portion of the tuition that has been previously paid.  No refunds will be issued for reasons that are considered a breach of contract.

Financial Aid Available:

Opportunity Scholarship Fund

Application is now closed. Applications will open in February and close April 1.

Lawton Academy does have limited scholarship capability.  No one family will be awarded more than $3,000 in financial assistance per year.  The form for financial aid above is Lawton Academy’s form.  If your family is offered a scholarship and you accept, you will still need to fill out the actual Opportunity Scholarship Fund and submit that form and the required tax records to us (Lawton Academy) no later than May 1 of the semester before attendance at Lawton Academy. Failure to do so will forfeit the offered scholarship.  No financial assistance is available after that date.

Eligibility

Lawton Academy of Arts & Sciences does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, or disability in administration of its educational and admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

  1.  The student must be a legal resident of the United States, live in Oklahoma, and have been accepted by Lawton Academy of Arts & Sciences for the 2021-22 school year.
  2. The student must live in a family within the Adjusted Gross Income guidelines:

2021-22 Income Guidelines

Family size of 2$96,681
Family size of 3$121,878
Family size of 4$147,075
Family size of 5$172,272
For each additional family member, add $25,197.

If eligible:

  1. Complete an application for each of your children eligible for a scholarship.
  2. Include the first two pages of the family’s most recent federal income tax return (Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ).  Speak with us about accepted alternate proofs of income.
  3. Return the completed application(s) and adjusted gross income documentation to Lawton Academy.  Do not send the application directly to the OSF.
  4. Lawton Academy will evaluate the family financial needs in accordance with school policy.  If the student is deemed eligible and appropriate by us, we will endorse the application, include a recommended scholarship amount, and forward the application to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund office for processing.
  5. If there are available funds in the school account, and if the student meets all eligibility requirements established in the law, the OSF will prepare a scholarship check made out jointly to the parent and school – and will mail the check to the school.
  6. Submit the scholarship application at the same time you turn in your admission application and accompanying paperwork.  If your child is accepted for admission, we will also send information regarding any scholarship award offered.
  7. If the scholarship amount is not enough assistance for the child to be able to attend, the family may ask that the contract previously signed not be honored.  We will not consider this a breach of contract, as the contract was signed in good faith that the assistance offered would be enough to be able to attend.
