Other Costs Throughout the School Year

Throughout the year there will be field trips (some with a cost and some without) as well as other things which will add to the cost of your education. Students in grades K-2 can expect approximately $100 in additional cost, and students in grades 3-8 can expect approximately $400 in additional costs (including the Outdoor Education trip). Students in 8th grade will pay an extra $250 towards extra trips and graduation.
There is also the option to order hot lunch which would add up to $500 per student, if they were to eat hot lunch every day. Hot Lunch is offered throughout the school year, the number of days depending on volunteers.

Please plan on extra costs of up to:

  • +$100 for each student in grades K-2
  • +$400 for each student in grades 3-8
  • +$250 for each student in grade 8

These amounts do not include hot lunch.

Only about half of the operating costs of Echo Ridge Christian School are met through fees paid by patrons. The balance is subsidized by the 2 constituent Seventh-day Adventist churches - Grass Valley and Penn Valley SDA.  For this reason, tuition rates are discounted for those who are members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church:

SDA Discount:

½ K       - $550

Full K    - $550

1-8        - $780
