We recognize that selecting a school to educate your child is a big decision. At Cross Lanes Christian School we exist to help students grow both spiritually and academically through a biblically based curriculum, weekly chapel and experienced educators who take great joy in teaching children.

A CLCS education is an investment in your child and your family’s future; if you choose to make that investment, we offer three convenient ways to pay tuition. A family may choose to pay for the full year in advance, or in ten monthly payments starting in August and ending in May.  All monthly tuition payments must be paid using the automated tuition payment system. Additional payment terms or special arrangement are available on request.

We realize that a private, Christian education can be costly.  We provide multiple student discounts; multiple student rates are calculated based on the oldest enrolled student being the first student, and limited tuition assistance may be requested by filling out at an application available from the school office.

Each time a child eats their pre-ordered meal, it will show up on the child’s voucher account.  You will be able to keep track of the balance in the voucher account online in Sycamore Education.

Parents need to monitor their individual child’s lunch account balance regularly and deposit funds when the account is low.  The system will not allow you to place a lunch order when the balance is at or below zero.
