Living Science Academy offers speech and drama classes for middle and high school students. Students who participate in the Servant Leader program participate in a dramatic production each year and receive half a Carnegie unit drama credit.

Science tuition includes the cost of a five-day science expedition to Jekyll Island for all students in grades 6-8 and to a different location each year for students in grades 9-12. More information on middle school and high school science expeditions, please visit the page matching your student's grade level.
All tuition amounts are annual. We offer a ten-month payment plan for families who prefer to pay on a monthly basis.
Students in selected grades buy their textbooks, pay a lab fee, purchase four Living Science Academy t-shirts for use on field trips and science expeditions, and each family helps maintain the campus by cleaning on one day each year or opting out and paying a small cleaning fee.
