Financial Aid

We at Foothills Adventist Elementary School recognize that private, Christian education is expensive and requires financial sacrifice for many parents. Because of this we do everything possible to keep tuition costs as low as possible. As a private, non-profit school, Foothills operates through a cooperative relationship between the local Adventist Churches and the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. The school’s income not only comes from tuition and church subsidies, but is also supported by the conference, and many generous donors. The Home and School sponsors several fundraising events throughout the year to pay for special projects. 

  • For the 2017-2018 school year the cost for educating an elementary student was $15,168.88. 
  • For the 2017-2018 school year the NCC contributed $3,675.85 for each elementary student.
  • For the 2017-2018 school year our constituent churches contributed $3,694.60 for each elementary student plus extra scholarship funds.  
  • The 2017-2018 budget included a goal of $2,648.43 to be raised for each elementary student and $400 for each preschooler.

The tuition and fees, listed below, include parents’ financial contributions towards the cost of educating each child. There are some incidental charges that will be required during the school year — such as field trips, individual supplies needed for homework, hot lunches, library fines, instrumental rentals, etc. 

Scholarship Funds

If you would like to enroll your child at Foothills but are concerned about tuition fees, please ask in the office about our scholarship programs. Scholarships are available through a variety of organizations including, Foothills Scholarship Fund, our constituent churches, and the Northern California Conference. Applications for all these programs are coordinated through our school office or the local constituent churches.
