Affording Lanier Christian Academy

Lanier Christian Academy proudly offers Variable Tuition. Tuition at LCA is not a “One-size-fits all.” It is a range. A range that spans from 50-100% of the full cost of education. Variable Tuition adjusts tuition rates to meet your family’s unique financial position. LCA can offer variable tuition because of the Georgia GOAL program. GOAL allows all Georgia taxpayers to redirect their state taxes to be spent at LCA. We take these funds and award them to families that qualify for needs based assistance. 

We begin processing variable tuition applications on March 15th.   Application must be submitted  in order for your variable tuition application to be reviewed. Awards are communicated to applicants within two weeks of application verification.
