Prism Education Center ensures that students from all income levels have access to its world-class education program by providing extensive financial aid. Some scholarships are provided, but most assistance is provided in the form of a tuition discount. Families pay only a small portion of the tuition requirements, the remainder is subsidized by the school and The Community church.
The amount paid by each family member differs by household income, family size, and scholarship funds available. The table provides an expected tuition range families from different income levels can expect to pay. In addition to tuition discounts, several criterion-based scholarships are also provided to students through non-Prism donors. More about available scholarships can be found below.

Some tuition discounts are still available, but
each has unique eligibility criteria. Contact
our admissions office for more information.
Additionally, Prism partners with different organizations to help fund an additional $100-$300 discount each month. Most of these programs operate on an income-eligibility basis. Specifically, most require a household income of less than $60,000 per year.
SCRIP Program & Alternate Payment Plans
In order to help families, regardless of whether they meet our income eligibility guidelines, Prism works with parents to earn monthly tuition discounts through the SCRIP program. Parents can earn rebates when shopping or dining out (list of stores includes Wal-Mart, Amazon, Starbucks, Target and more). These rebates are applied directly to student tuition. Additionally, Prism offers a 12-month plan that allows parents to spread tuition payments out over more months, thus resulting in a smaller monthly payment.
Families who fall above the income-eligibility guidelines, as well as those who do not, will likely benefit from amendments to federal and state tax law that allow 529 plans to be used as savings accounts for K-12 private school as well as for college. Learn more about this here or at our "How to Pay for Private School Workshop".
How to Pay for Private School Workshop
There are additional scholarships and practices families can use to reduce the cost of private tuition that will be discussed at our How to Pay for Private School Workshop. This workshop is tentatively scheduled for April 30, 2018. In order to ensure we have enough materials prepared for all participants, please RSVP at email@example.com.
*Families with incomes greater than $56,000/year are also welcome to submit requests for additional financial assistance and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
**Rates in this table are not guaranteed. Financial assistance is dependent on a number of factors including household income, household size, number of dependents with education expenses, and total amount of scholarship funds available. Tuition determination will be made after the full application for enrollment has been submitted. Registration and acceptance are determined after a tuition contract is settled.
