Funding a Dominion Education: 2024-2025

FUNDING A DOMINION EDUCATION
Concerned about funding a high-quality classical Christian education for your children?  Dominion offers a sliding-scale financial aid program.  Subject to the availability of funds, need-based financial aid is available to families who cannot comfortably afford full tuition.  Much like college financial aid, our program is based on a sliding scale that includes a broad range of income levels. For families who do not receive tuition assistance, tuition rates for the 2024-2025 school year are as follows. For more information, or to apply for tuition assistance, please visit our tuition assistance page
        2024-2025 Tuition for Grades K-6   $16,224.00
        2024-2025 Tuition for Grades 7-12  $20,010.00

 

MULTIPLE CHILDREN?
While Dominion does not offer a multi-child discount, our need-based tuition assistance program takes into consideration the size of your family, the number of children in private school, and the number of children in college.  We encourage families with multiple children to apply for assistance to help us provide a financial award that will help you comfortably afford our program.
 
529 TAX-FREE PRIVATE EDUCATION PAYMENTS
In many cases, the federal government allows for up to $10,000 in tax-free payments from 529 plans for expenses for private K-12 education.  We recommend checking with your financial advisor for more information.
 
APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID
Dominion employs FACTS, one of the largest providers of financial aid management in private education, to provide a secure, confidential online application process. You may start or access your FACTS account and application HERE.
 
ANNUAL ACTIVITY FEE
7DCAFA8B-E130-41C4-B027-4DB2D2362B03
Dominion charges an annual student activity fee in lieu of asking for funds throughout the year to cover classroom needs, field trips, overnight trips, and other expenses.  Paid annually or monthly, the fee covers all of the core expenses you will be expected to pay while your child is enrolled in Dominion with two exceptions: optional activities or offerings (school lunches, electives, pizza lunch, etc.) and the junior/senior class trip to Europe.  Otherwise, you may expect that all of your expenses will be covered by tuition and fees.  For 2024-2025, the fees are as follows:

 

Grades K-6
$218.00
Grades 7-8
$665.00
Grades 9-12
$765.00

*Important: In academic years with a spring semester that occurs on an even year (2023-2024, 2025-2026, etc.), our juniors and seniors travel abroad instead of participating in a domestic trip.  International travel is funded directly by families rather than through student activity fees.  Since there will be no junior/senior domestic trip during these years, the junior/senior fees will be reduced whenever international travel is scheduled to occur).

 

TUITION INSURANCE
Tuition insurance (3.0% of full annual tuition) is due May 15, 2024* and is mandatory unless tuition is paid in full by this date. If a family pays annually and elects not to participate in the Tuition Insurance plan, the family will remain obligated to pay full-year fees and tuition in case of withdrawal or dismissal from Dominion.

 

Grades K-6
$492.96
Grades 7-12
$608.00
 
NORTH CAMPUS FACILITY FEE (TEMPORARY)
Students who attend the North Campus (returning Potomac Falls and Reston students and any transfers from Oakton) will be assessed a $1,250 per student annual fee ($2,500 per family maximum).  The fee will remain in effect during the 2024-2025 academic year, but it will be eliminated as soon as enrollment growth is sufficient to sustain expense increases associated with our recent acquisition of a facility. (Note: shuttle fees will be waived for any student also paying the North Campus Facility Fee.)

 

LEGACY FEE
Dominion relies upon private revenues not only for operation, but also for future growth, expansion, and improvement of our programs, facilities, and student offerings.  Tuition and our annual fund gifts cover today's expenses.  We also charge a one-time fee to all new families at Dominion that helps us create a stronger Dominion for tomorrow.  The cost is $975 and is billable in May, semi-annually, or monthly, depending upon a family's chosen payment plan.
 
EDUCATIONAL THERAPY (South Campus)
This is a supplemental program option available by separate agreement with families for whom the service is provided.
        Full-Time $5,490.00 (part-time participation is prorated)

ACADEMIC COACHING (North Campus)
This is a supplemental program option available by separate agreement with families for whom the service is provided. 
        $1,880 (two days/week, October through the end of school)

NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT: $500.00 (per student)
The deposit is credited towards tuition and is charged 10 days after enrolling with FACTS (for new families) or on or after January 31 (for returning families).  If you have more than two children and are unable to afford a single deposit payment, please contact our Admissions Director at admissions@welcomecam.com
