FINANCIAL AID

When considering an Orange Lutheran High School education, our Financial Aid Committee is here to help make it a reality. We are committed to providing a comprehensive need-based program of financial aid along with a limited number of scholarships which make it possible for all admitted students to attend. With over $3 million in financial aid plus scholarships awarded annually, Orange Lutheran continues to fulfill its mission and vision of raising up extraordinary young men and women for a Christian life of purpose, service, and leadership.

 

Applications for financial aid open on September 1st for the following school year. All applications received will be processed by the committee and any awards applied in a timely manner to your financial contract.

Effective for the 2021-2022 school year, as a requirement of receiving financial aid, each student or a representing family member must volunteer at least 12 hours at our Orange Lutheran Thrift Shop. Net proceeds from the Thrift Shop directly support the financial aid program at Orange Lutheran.

The mission of the Orange Lutheran Thrift Shop is to support the Christian character and education of Orange Lutheran High School students through financial assistance and outreach to our community.

TUITION & FINANCIAL AID FAQ

WHAT DOES "ASSOCIATION" MEAN?

Orange Lutheran High School was founded in 1973 by an association of Lutheran churches. Orange Lutheran is governed by delegates from the Association which also elects our Board of Directors. Students verified as members by one of our Association churches receive discounted tuition, which is partially subsidized by the Association churches and re-verified annually. The annual verification process is initiated by Orange Lutheran based on students enrolling and indicating that they are members of one of our Association churches. Each Association church has different criteria for verifying members, but the criteria generally includes regular worship, involvement and service, and regular tithing.

WHAT KIND OF SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID DOES ORANGE LUTHERAN OFFER?

Orange Lutheran’s Board of Directors is pleased to earmark over $2.5 million annually for need-based financial assistance. This program assists nearly 500 families. We also offer a limited number of scholarships. Please see the Scholarships section for more information.

DOES FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE NEED TO BE REPAID?

No, this grant does not need to be repaid as long as the service hour requirement is met. We do insist each family volunteer at least 10 hours at our Orange Lutheran Thrift Shop per student receiving aid. This ministry provides a large portion of funds for our financial assistance program.

DO I NEED TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE EVERY YEAR?

Yes. Families must re-apply for financial assistance each year.

IF I RECEIVE ASSISTANCE, HOW DO I CALCULATE MY MONTHLY PAYMENTS?

Calculating your Tuition Balance (example based on 2020-2021 tuition rates)

Upon receipt of your financial aid award, you can estimate your monthly tuition amount.  Your award will be subtracted from the annual tuition rate of either:

Association         $15,575

Non-Association    $17,450

Families receiving need-based financial aid are eligible to make monthly payments at no additional charge. Monthly payments begin in May and continue through April of the following year.

For example, if you are an Association member and receive $2,135 in financial aid, your monthly tuition payment will be:

Tuition        $15,575

Less Fin. Aid  ($ 2,135)

Balance    $13,440 / 12 months = $1,120 per month, starting in May.

DOES FINANCIAL AID INCLUDE MY TEXTBOOKS?

If awarded Financial Aid, textbooks and iPads are not provided by Orange Lutheran High School. We ask that families plan ahead and purchase their own school supplies for the fall semester.

CAN I USE MY 529 ACCOUNT TO PAY FOR TUITION?

Please refer to our 529 information sheet for all questions regarding 529 Accounts.

Being encouraged to not only remain dedicated to my craft but also to keep the Lord at the center of it all gave me a great perspective on my future. Orange Lutheran prepared me to walk confidently, work tirelessly, and find my hope in Christ alone.
