Financial Information

It is expensive to attend Fletcher Academy; nevertheless, we are committed to making it possible for any high school students who are committed to developing their God-given talents and enhancing their relationship with Jesus. No student will be turned away from FA because of financial challenges. We do, however, require students to do their fair-share by working during the summer and the school year. Parents are also required to pay their fair-share of their child’s expenses. This amount is determined by household income, number of dependents, and other factors. The family’s church is also required to pay their fair-share. If all of these conditions have been met, FA will make available the remaining financial resources to make it possible for qualified applicants to attend our school.

Annual Costs
Most of the fees and charges are included in the flat-rate plan, which offers definite advantages to the student and parents. The flat-rate charge includes the following services: Tuition, Room and Board, Private Music Lessons (as available from FA’s faculty), Workers’ Comp. Insurance, and Minor medical service.

The flat-rate charge does not include the following: Application Fee, textbooks, room/security deposit, room appliance charges (the person who brings the appliance is responsible for the charge), senior graduation fee, class dues, transportation fees, tithe, driver education fees, personal music supplies, required wear for music/sports organizations, doctor fees & prescriptions, and instrument rental.

Tuition and Fees as approved by Board for the 2016-2017 school year:

International students with TOEFL scores below 500 PBT must enroll in our ESL program and pay an additional $4,000 per year.

Payment Plans
Parents may choose one of the three payments plans for their portion of the student charges. Students will not be allowed to register until the 1st payment has been paid in full.

  1. Full Payment at Registration: If the total annual amount due by the parents is paid in cash or by check at Registration, a three percent discount will apply.
  2. Ten Monthly Payments: Under this plan, parents will pay the Entrance Fee and Room Deposit, plus 1/10th of the net charges to be paid by the parent at the time of registration. The remaining 9 payments (September through May) will be equal payments of the remaining balance due from the parent for the school year.
  3. Twelve Monthly Payments: Parents will pay the projected net amount to be paid by the parent in 12 equal installments. The first payment is due on July 5 and the last of 12 payments is due on June 5.
