Look for the 2020-2021 School Year Tuition & Fees posted soon.

We are here during the Safer at Home Initiative to welcome you and provide a virtual tour of our campus, meet with you via Zoom and have phone sessions to walk through our tuition and financial contract.

The tuition rate at South Bay Junior Academy is affordable as compared collectively to other private schools in the South Bay.

All grades have the same tuition rate and each grade has grade-specific fees associated with the activities of grade such as astro, science and nature camps, laptop program, etc.

We look forward to meeting you in person to give you a tour and cover all costs and payment schedule.

South Bay Junior Academy is dedicated to providing education at an affordable cost, made possible because the school has been operating in the same location since 1964, and owns its own facility. We do not rent our location or pay a mortgage for the buildings and land which allows us to keep tuition affordable by private school standards. In addition, the school is a part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist Church that is committed to financially subsidizing private Christian education.

Without these two factors, the tuition would be, by necessity, significantly higher. The school is passing its financial blessing on to the families who desire a private Christian school experience for their children.
