For your convenience, Mt. Bethel Christian Academy offers a one-payment, three-payment, and 10-payment plan (service fees apply to the three and 10-pay plans). To see a complete list of the tuition breakdown by plan, please click here. Payment plans run May through February.

Tuition Insurance
 is required of all families on the three or ten payment plan. It is optional for all families who chose to pay with the single payment plan. If you have any questions about the tuition insurance, please review the program outline here or contact the business office.

At MBCA, we include fees such as lunch, technology fees, and day/overnight field trip expenses within our tuition. This allows families who need tuition assistance to have the majority of costs figured into the price of an MBCA education.  Additionally, MBCA accepts Georgia State Bill 10 Funding to help offset the cost of tuition for students who qualify for this program.  Click here to learn more.

Each year, families can expect an annual tuition increase that will be announced before re-enrollment in January. At the time of enrollment or re-enrollment, families will pay a one time deposit of $1,500 which goes toward their tuition for the next year.

Tuition Assistance

Our Tuition Assistance program exists to make a Mt. Bethel Christian Academy education available to as many families as possible each year. We strive to grant Tuition Assistance to all families who apply and demonstrate a need, as assessed through an independent third party program, FACTS. Income verification is required by providing a copy of the parent(s) prior year tax returns. In order to meet the needs for the greatest number of families, the Tuition Assistance Committee will thoughtfully and prayerfully evaluate all current applicants.
Financial Aid for the following school year will open each January.
