Tuition Rates for 2023–24
As a school, Westlake is committed to keeping tuition rates as low as possible. The Board of Trustees tries to balance affordability for families with providing an excellent education and compensating our teachers and staff at a level that values their hard work and adjusts for inflation.
For 2023–24, tuition rates will increase for the first child in each family. However, the rates for additional children (1st–12th grade) will not increase.
For the Early Learning Center, our tuition structure is changing to better reflect the program that we offer. All preschool/pre-k students will select a morning class schedule, and then they may choose to extend their day by adding an afternoon enrichment schedule. This will offer additional flexibility to families, as they may choose to send their child fewer afternoons than mornings. For example, a child could attend morning class 5 days a week and only stay for the afternoon on MWF. To calculate the cost for a full day of preschoo/pre-k, families will need to total the annual amounts for their morning and afternoon selections.
If the increased tuition rates present a financial challenge for your family, then we encourage you to apply for a personalized variable tuition rate or contact the business office.
To help families with the cost of Christian education, WCA offers a Variable Tuition program (VT) for students entering K–12th Grades. We match your tuition rate to your family’s unique financial position so that tuition at Westlake is not a one size fits all, it’s a range.

Band, Art, Sports, Advanced Course Fees
Fees for WCA optional programs offset a portion of the overall cost of those programs. Sports fees include mandatory accident insurance, tournament registrations, and travel expenses. These fees are used along with donor gifts to fund our programs. Since our programs have different levels of involvement and expenses, our fees are structured accordingly. Homes school students will pay higher fees to offset the budget contribution from full-time student tuition. For information about fees for optional programs, click here.
