At Oakdale, we strive to make classical and Christian education accessible to every family who desires it. For qualified families that are challenged by the cost of tuition, we offer tuition assistance and scholarship opportunities. Please contact us to learn more.

At enrollment, you will choose your payment plan (1, 11, or 12 installments) and pay a tuition deposit and enrollment fee. Starting in February, you will receive an email when the charges and fees are added to your account. The amount may change based on FA. The first invoice 2024-2025 is due on June 25.

Financial Aid

Oakdale Academy has a limited amount of need-based tuition assistance available; nearly 25% of our families receive some sort of financial aid. Our desire is to offer a classical and Christian education to all qualified applicants, without regard to family income. Accordingly, we have allocated funds for this purpose. Returning families and new applicants may apply for financial aid. Financial aid applications for returning families are due by February 29th. New family financial aid applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. *Applicaitons for next school year will be available the first week of January.

Oakdale Academy uses FACTS to process financial aid applications.  FACTS applies standardized criteria to determine to what extent each family needs assistance to pay for one year’s tuition. 

All supplied financial information is confidential.


Multi-Student Discount

There is a 5% tuition discount for the second and third child enrolled (within the same household); tuition for the fourth child and beyond is fixed at $2,300.  

Full-time Ministry Discount

Partnering with local churches and ministries is important to Oakdale Academy.  We are proud to offer a tuition discount of 50% for parents in a full-time ministry position; this includes all full-time ministry positions in well-established churches within a 25-mile radius of Oakdale Academy, including but not limited to the following:  senior, campus, associate, youth and/or children, and worship pastors.  May you find this tuition discount to be a token of our appreciation for partnering with us in the challenge of educating our students in accordance with Biblical principles.  A signed discount agreement form will need to be renewed annually and must accompany your child’s application or re-enrollment forms. This discount applies only to tuition and will be factored in when calculating other financial assistance applications.


Other Fees

Application Fee: $50 each for the first two applications; additional applications are $22 each. 

Enrollment Fee & Tuition Deposit: $300 (nonrefundable) per student or $900 family maximum (non-refundable), payable at enrollment.  A $400 per family tuition deposit (non-refundable) is also collected at the time of enrollment; it is later applied to the total tuition balance.
