2017 -2018 Summary of Tuition and Fees
Mission:  Proclaiming Jesus Christ through Excellence in Education.

Crean Lutheran strives to be faithful to our Lord in practicing efficient stewardship of all resources entrusted to us.  Our tuition remains very competitive – both less than the vast majority of other Christian and private schools in the area and lower in annual increases than all others.  We strive to keep our uniforms affordable, durable, and appropriate for a Christian school.  With Follett, our bookstore, we constantly look for ways to save our students and families money by providing purchase, rent, and buy-back options.  Our fee structure for participation in sports and activities is also less than the vast majority of other schools.
