There is a monthly tuition of $550. Teen Challenge of the Firelands does not allow finances to dictate admission, however we strive to be good managers of God's resources. It costs Teen Challenge about $1600 per month/per student.

Teen Challenge makes the first sacrifice by covering two thirds (2/3) of the monthly tuition and we ask the student / their family / or friends / or their church to sacrifice with us by paying the other one third (1/3) which is $550 per month.
