Lakewood Catholic Academy provides a premier Catholic education. We strive to keep the LCA tuition as affordable as possible and will work with your family to keep your children coming back.

At LCA, we use a three-tiered tuition system for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Below is our 2018-2019 school year tuition information.

Tier One:

Families qualify for Tier One Tuition pricing if they are parishioners in good standing at one of the four Lakewood parishes that provide LCA with financial support (Saint Clement, Saint James, Saint Luke, and Transfiguration) or are members of other parishes that choose to subsidize tuition for their parish families with a contribution toward their Catholic education.
