Tuition & Fees

Remarkably Affordable Education

 

Get a general idea of a typical enrollment.

We believe you should never have to sacrifice the quality of your child’s education. That’s why we do all we can to keep our tuition prices remarkably low.

Update: As of June 1st, we have some minor tuition changes and are changing the way we determine the down payment amount on the payment plan. This change to a 20% model should eliminate the larger down payments that sometimes occurred with high school students or students using our Special Services.

1 Student Standard Tuition
2 Students Save $50
3 Students Save $150
4 Students Save $250
Each additional student after the 4th. Save an additional $160

Book Credits

Seton does provide a discount for any course books already owned or not needed. Price varies according to text.

Please have book credits ready and completed at the time of enrollment as they can not be applied after enrollment is completed.

Military Discount

Active military families can receive a $30 discount per student (does not apply to single course enrollments).

Half-Year Discount

If you only need to complete one or two quarters of the year (Grades 1-12), you can receive a $100 discount by signing up for a Half-Year Enrollment. You receive all of the same books and lesson plans, and still have a full year to complete the work, but can only submit up to two quarters in each subject.

Beginner’s Guide Discount

Families who sign up for the Beginner’s Guide to Seton receive a code that will take $30 off of their enrollment. This discount is designed to off-set the New Family Fee and is only available for new families if the $30 New Family Fee is being applied.

Additional Services or Courses with Fees

New Family Fee

New families or those who have not been enrolled with Seton for a couple of years have a $30 fee. This fee helps us with administrative processing, additional materials for new families, transcript reviews, and optional assessment testing for Grades 1-12.

Plan B Service Fee

If you are signing up to use Seton’s payment plan option, there is a service fee of 10% for each student’s tuition and fees. This amount is capped at $60 per student. The Tuition Calculator uses $60 for Grades 1 through 12 and $25 for Pre-K and K, so your cost could be a few dollars less than the estimate.

Special Educational Services

Students who sign up to have our Special Services Dept. create a customized curriculum have an additional fee of $150 for Grades K through 6 and a fee of $225 for Grades 7 through 12.

Math Books

Saxon Math and other High School Math courses have additional book fees. For Junior High and High School level courses, these are $35 per book with 8th Grade and High School usually needing two books. These common fees have already been added to the Tuition Calculator to provide you with an estimate of costs.

Software Licenses

The online foreign language courses in high school using Rosetta Stone require a $35 software license fee per course. The online math courses using Teaching Textbooks have a $50 license fee if you do not already have the Teaching Textbooks course material.

High School Overload

Student usually take 5 to 6 courses in High School. Our tuition covers up to 6 full credits. If you wish to take more than 6 you can, but there will be an overload fee of $210 per full credit course or $115 per half-credit course for any courses beyond the 6 included.

Single Course Enrollments

Single Course Fees

Students may also enroll in one or more single courses. Just as with a full enrollment, tuition for a single course includes all books, lesson plans, testing, grading and all other Seton services.
