Tuition & Affording WPA

Here's why a Westlake Prep education is more affordable than you think!



We understand that sending a student to Westlake Prep is a significant financial investment for a family.  Private schools must charge tuition; we are no exception. At WPA believes in a high-quality faculty and excellent programs. We believe that we need to provide the little extras that truly make us an exceptional school. We also realize that this raises the cost, but at the same time we know that the cost is worth it. This means that we must find ways to make it affordable for every family. Realizing the financial commitment of a private education, Westlake Prep provides tuition assistance to qualifying families. 

The goal of our Tuition Assistance Program is to make WPA an affordable educational experience for families wishing to receive an exceptional Christian education.

Each year LEAH Schools distributes a total of over $3 million to students in all three of our schools, Lutheran South Academy, Westlake Prep, and Lutheran High North.  Over 40% of the student body at WPA receive some type of assistance with average tuition assistance equaling $7,000 per student.  Applying for assistance has absolutely no impact on admission decisions. Our goal is to support families who demonstrate financial need, which is calculated using FACTS. Recipients of tuition assistance represent a broad range of income levels, from less than $20,000 to $300,000.
