TUITION AND AFFORDABILITY

Tuition

At Southern Prep, we proudly provide an exceptional education rooted in the principles of military structure and discipline. We understand that investing in your son’s education can initially seem overwhelming, but rest assured, the value he will gain at our Academy extends far beyond the classroom. We work daily to instill discipline, leadership, and a strong sense of character, preparing our students for success in both academic and personal endeavors.

The tuition fee covers instruction, room and board, and a $300 technology fee that will cover the costs associated with the rental of a school-owned Chromebook, wireless internet, and other technological devices. It does not include spending money, special medical care beyond the facilities of the infirmary, driver’s education, flying lessons, airport transportation, or willful destruction of property.
