HOW MUCH ARE TUITION AND FEES?
Please refer to our Student Handbook for specific information.
WHAT FACTORS INFLUENCE THE COST OF GPSDA TUITION?
We believe the worth of attending our school outweighs the costs. The benefits of a lower teacher-student ratio, as well as our academic and extracurricular options, make Grants Pass Seventh-day Adventist School worth every dollar. Please keep in mind that many factors influence our tuition rates, such as rising liability insurance, prices of textbooks, and building maintenance. We strive to keep tuition increases as minimal as possible. Families may apply for financial assistance to pay tuition, and families who are members of our constituent churches also receive a monthly discount.
DOES THE SCHOOL HAVE A LUNCH PROGRAM? HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The school provides a healthy hot lunch twice a week. Students have the option to purchase these lunches the month before to enjoy the best value. Since our entire lunch program is on a volunteer basis, prices and availability are subject to change.
