Tuition does not cover the full costs of operating Ames Christian School. The critical 10% gap between tuition income and expenses depends on fundraisers and donations. At least one parent from every ACS family is expected to volunteer, serve, or donate to a minimum of one large and one small fundraiser annually.
Current Tuition and Fees Schedule
Tuition for Half Day Preschool, All Day Preschool, Early Kindergarten, and Kindergarten to Sixth grade is set each year in February prior to early registration. Please see the document links below for the full schedule of tuition and fees.
Tuition assistance is available for kindergarten through sixth grade students of families who meet need-based income qualifications. It is expected that all ACS families will pay tuition to the best of their abilities and those who qualify for tuition assistance will be eligible to receive an award for the remaining portion.
A limited pool of funds is available for tuition assistance. Families are encouraged to apply as soon as registration opens in the Spring. Applications received by the submission deadline will be considered equally. Applications received after this date will be considered for any funds that may remain.
