The Value of a Christian Education
Since our school’s founding, Knoxville Christian School’s Board of Directors has made it a goal to create an opportunity for a Christian education that is affordable to as many families as possible. We seek to partner with families to educate children for a life of service to God. While the primary responsibility for financing a student’s education rests with the family, we seek to accomplish this goal by keeping tuition costs as low as possible and by offering financial aid to families who need assistance.
Prices reflect the total cost for the full academic year. All fees must be paid, and tuition contract signed in our financial office before student can begin school. For assistance, please contact the admissions office at (865) 966-7099.
