* Enrollment deposit is 15% of total tuition per student. Without an enrollment deposit paid, the student may be moved to the waitlist. ** Tuition and Deposit for each subsequent year will be determined by the Governing Board by December.

It is the heart of the CAL Governing Board to keep tuition, deposit, and fees as affordable as possible while still maintaining financial responsibility.  Our hope is that no family will avoid enrollment due to our tuition and related costs. CAL provides financial assistance and scholarships for families who desire a classical education and have a true financial need. Please contact our Admissions department for instructions if you are interested in applying for aid.
