Important Financial Information
Investing in your child’s spiritual and educational foundation is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.
Our goal each year is to be good and wise stewards of the resources God has provided in order to deliver extraordinary value in relationship to each family’s financial investment.
When Christian education is a desire beyond your means, tuition assistance may be available to help make Liberty Prep accessible for your family.

The 2023 Appropriations Act Expands Eligibility for the Opportunity Scholarship Program
On October 3, 2023, the North Carolina State Budget (House Bill 259) became law. The new law authorizes several changes to the State’s Opportunity Scholarship Program, which will begin with the 2024-2025 school year.
Changes for the 2024-2025 school year include:
- Removal of the income cap for families to receive the scholarship; now all North Carolina students in kindergarten through 12th grade will be eligible for the Scholarship regardless of income.
- Prior public school enrollment is no longer a requirement for eligibility for the scholarship.
- A student’s scholarship amount will be based on household income.
- Scholarship amounts will range from approximately $3,000 to approximately $7,000.
The Opportunity Scholarship application for the 2024-2025 school year will open on February 1, 2024. Families must apply by March 1 to receive priority consideration. More information about the application process will be available on the program website in January.
Please see www.ncseaa.edu/OSG.htm for more information.
Liberty Prep Financial Aid
Due to the increased scholarship opportunity for all students with the NC Opportunity Scholarship Program, Liberty Prep will not be accepting applications for financial aid. We recommend that each family submits an application through NCSEAA.
If after the Opportunity Scholarships have been awarded you still are in need of financial assistance, please contact Mrs. Weir at firstname.lastname@example.org for possible options. As we are in the inaugural year of this program, there are many unknowns. We will re-evaluate after the year for how to best provide for our families. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate new territory.
Any financial assistance granted by LPCA will amount to no more than 50% of annual tuition, and is awarded to students of any race, color, gender, national and ethnic origin.

These fees stand independently of any Opportunity Scholarship received.
Exceptions for withdrawal fees may be made for certain hardship situations only – death in immediate family, loss of work, job transfer out of the area, or extended illness for student or parent.
- Most books and curriculum are provided by Liberty Prep and remain the property of Liberty Prep. Consumable materials (workbooks, etc.) are retained by the student at the end of the year. Families are responsible for replacement costs of lost or damaged curriculum or library books. A list of optional approved materials to purchase for home use is available upon request.
- Students are required to adhere to the established dress code (see LPCA student handbook). Families are responsible for purchasing items for each student.
- Liberty Prep will furnish a reasonable list of school supplies required for all students. Parents are responsible for purchasing each student’s school supplies, including a Chromebook for secondary students.
- All fees assessed by the school are a financial obligation due to the school according to the established due dates. Student records, including report cards, are held until all obligations have been paid in full through the school office. If there is an overdue balance, students are not permitted to re-register or graduate from Liberty Prep.
- Referral Credits: A family may receive a $250 credit toward tuition in October for the referral of each new student that begins school in August. The new family must confirm referral in their application. In the event of multiple family referrals, the credit will be split equally.
- HS students must pay full tuition regardless of the number of classes taken on campus.
- LPCA reserves the right to place a hold on re-enrollment or revoke enrollment based on a failure to meet expectations as outlined in the LPCA School Handbook.

Opportunity Scholarship Information
All families are strongly encouraged to apply for the NCSEAA Opportunity Scholarship between 2/1/24 – 3/1/24. Families must certify their awards with NCSEAA for LPCA to be paid for a portion of their tuition. Failure to submit the proper documentation or complete certification does not absolve families from paying full tuition. Families are responsible for paying for the amount of tuition not covered by NCSEAA.
Tuition increases are made to cover salaries, operating expenses, and inflation.
