TDA Tuition for 2019-2020



Our goal is to offer the most excellent education, extra-curricular activities, and post-high school preparation for the lowest possible cost. We also have one of the highest multi-student discounts for families with more than one child in order to help support them (see below). We know families are working hard to afford private education and we want to support them as much as we can.

Every family is required to serve 4 hours/week.  These service hours will be arranged with TDA administration upon enrollment completion.  Single parents are asked to serve 2 hours/week. If an extenuating circumstance prevents a family from being able to serve their hours, they can select the “replacement” option.  A family who selects the replacement option will be selecting this option for the entire school year. TDA will hire an available TDA parent to serve the hours in place of the family.  The cost for this option is $1,500 for the year, and will be billed monthly on the tuition statement. Parents will need to choose the on-site or off-site option for the entire year.

Elementary students books will be ordered by TDA.  Junior and Senior High students will purchase their own new or used books for their classes (booklist will be provided).

Student supply fee covers things such as field trips, science lab materials, field day, retreat, RenWeb Parent Alert fee, standardized testing fee, and class supply fees. This cost is spread out over the monthly tuition payments.  Events planned during the year that were not figured into the original budget, will be billed on tuition statements.
