TUITION RATES

West Coast Christian School strives to serve families who desire a Christian education for their children. Our goal is to disciple young people in the Kingdom of God, by providing a distinctively Christian education, teaching a biblical world-view, training in Godly character and developing a loving community.
 
tuition & fees

Registration Fee:  Upon acceptance to WCCS, a Registration Fee of $300 (per family) is due to reserve your child’s place in class and is non-refundable with one exception:  The Registration Fee also serves as Volunteer Deposit and may be refunded upon the completion of 30 volunteer hours in the same school year.  (Due to COVID-19, volunteer opportunities are greatly reduced and this fee is under review and subject to change.)

Tution Fees:  Parents have two options for payment of tuition fees:  One annual payment or 10 monthly pre-authorized payments (from a bank account). 

Other Costs:  School uniforms, school supplies and special activity fees (all regular field trips are covered by tuition fees). 

financial assistance

Our Financial Assistance Fund is supported by a portion of our regular tuition fees and by donations from individuals who share the vision of our school. This fund is administered by the WCCS School Board through an application/interview process once a family is registered.  Assistance is on a sliding scale based on income, assets and number of students enrolled.

Donations to this fund may be made to West Coast Christian School, marked as “Financial Assistance”.

What Our Parents Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our school families do the talking!

I love this school! It feels like home, like family.

Our son has difficulty socializing with his peers and we were concerned that at a public school he would be bullied. The small class sizes here give his teachers extra time to help him learn to connect better with his peers. I’m also grateful that I have the opportunity to volunteer. It feels great to be a part of such a close-knit community.
