Central Iowa Christian School depends on tuition, donations, and fundraising to meet its expenses. Providing outstanding education is expensive, and we greatly value keeping tuition costs as low as possible. To meet our financial requirements and keep tuition down, we require that each family prioritize fundraising throughout the year.


We rely on $30,000 in fundraising income each year. This money keeps tuition down by about $1,000 per student! To make it happen, we ask each family to volunteer for each of our major fundraisers.
