Pay Tuition

Last Updated: 1/23/2023 1:40 PM

Parents of tuition students in Elizabethton City Schools may pay tuition online  and they now have access to a monthly payment option. This is offered as a convenience to parents to help make payments easier throughout the school year.

Ways to Pay

  • Lump-Sum – due by the first full day of school, payable at school or online
  • Twice annual – due by the first day of school or the first day of the semester, payable at school or online
  • Monthly – due by the first day of the month (or the first day of school), payable online

Fee Schedule

Home Address (Grades K-5) (Grades 6-8) (Grades 9-12)
Carter County $800 $400 $300
Outside Carter County $1,600 $1,600 $1,600


*The family cap for families living in or outside of Carter County is $2,200.

Family Cap

If the cost of tuition for your family exceeds $2,200, please checkout using the Family Cap option, rather than selecting each option from the schools below. The family cap applies to families inside and outside of Carter County. You must list each child and his or her school in the text box below the Family Cap dropdown menu.

Pay Online

If you choose to pay online, you will be charged an additional PayPal convenience fee of approximately 5% which is already factored into each price displayed in the drop down menus below. 

It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure payment is made on time. Parents will not be notified when the monthly payment is due, and students may be removed from school if payment is not made on time. For more information, reference Board Policy 6.204.

Monthly Payment Due Dates 2022- 2023

*The price per month has been adjusted to reflect an eight-month payment period rather than a nine-month payment period like it was in 2017-2018.

Fall 2022 Spring 2023

Parents, please select the appropriate option from the drop down menus for each of your tuition students. Click "Add to Cart." This will add the cost of each of your student's tuition payments to a cart, which you may pay with a credit card or with your PayPal account. Include your child's name in the "Student's Full Name" line or we will not be able to file payment with the appropriate student. Please contact the Finance Department at Central Office with questions at 423-547-8000.
