Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.  – Proverbs 22:6 

Christian Education at Winnebago Lutheran Academy is an investment.  Our students are equipped for all major universities and colleges, for entering the workforce, and for entering the military.  More importantly, our students are equipped for eternity because of the precious promises of forgiveness and eternal life in Christ Jesus – promises shared with our students every day.  That is what makes education at WLA so valuable. It is an investment for eternity.

On March 22, 2022, the Winnebago Lutheran Academy Plenary Board approved the 2022-2023 operating budget and tuition rates as listed below.

2022-23 Tuition Rates

$6,775  Association Congregation Student
$8,400  Non-Association Student

WLA’s tuition includes fees for athletic participation, textbook rental, and Chromebook rental.

WLA’s actual cost of education per student for the 2022-23 school year will be approximately $10,770 per student. We are thankful for the annual support of our Association Churches who help to support almost 20% of WLA students’ educaton. In addition to our congregations, gifts by individual donors and Second Impressions Thrift Store also help to bridge the gap between the cost of education and the actual tuition charged per student. The 2022-23 Association tuition rate is a $175 increase (2.65%) from the 2022-22 tuition rate. 

Tuition agreements for the 2022-23 school year will be sent to families in May via email through FACTS, WLA’s tuition management program. The agreement will include any credits applicable to your family. Note for eth 2022-23 school year: WLA will be using FACTS (replacing TADS) for our tuition management program.

Part of setting up your family’s tuition agreement is setting up a payment plan for the 2022-23 school year. Families have the option to pay in full by August 15th, pay by semester (half due in August and half in January), or pay monthly (August – May.)

Transportation Subsidy

Discount is for students who live outside of the Fond du Lac zip codes (54935-37) and is calculated at $12 per mile based on the one-way distance of a student’s residence to WLA.

Multiple Child Discount

The discount for a second child enrolled at WLA is $200 for the 2022-23 school year.


The Scrip program at WLA allows families to build funds toward tuition at WLA.  A percentage of each scrip card sale is given back to WLA and to the family making the purchase.
