The Kanakuk Institute is a priceless investment with

life-changing results for generations to come.

Through the generosity of our donors, each participating student  in the Class of 2023-2024 will receive a $7,500 scholarship toward the $20,750 cost of the Kanakuk Institute.  


Once the scholarship is applied, actual tuition for each student 

is $13,000 and may be split into two easy payments.

Tuition Breakdown

We are committed to helping students walk in freedom in every area of their lives. This includes finances, thus we come alongside each of our students to help them understand good stewardship and develop financial faithfulness. With this in mind, students also have the ability to establish a payment plan in order to fulfill their tuition.

The cost of the Kanakuk Institute can be intimidating, but when you compare to the cost of living in a major city, the Institute is not only less, it will stretch your dollar.

Campus Service Program

As part of our character development curriculum at the Kanakuk Institute, students are asked to spend two hours a week completing campus service.  We have more than 40 campus service opportunities to choose from and students will have the opportunity to select a job based on their interests and schedule.

Students will also be assigned a meal crew, showing up early to one meal a week to help serve, and clean the dining hall after.

With each student taking part in campus service, we can work together to keep our campus looking amazing and costs low. 

Please Note: 

Any payment made toward a specific student’s tuition is not tax deductible, thus the Institute is unable to issue gift receipts or 1098T forms for tuition.
