Private school question

If your children attend private school, what do you pay?  We are pulling my son out of public school next year and putting him into private.  There are a ton of private schools around here and there are some huge swings in the cost of tuition.  Just curious as to what others pay and where you are.  Thanks!

The cost for 1 year is $14,500, but my daughter has a scholarship so we pay $7200

We are sending our daughter to a new, closer to our home private Catholic school. The cost of tuition is only $1000. The school my daughter attends now is $1400. I live in a smaller area so private school is cheap.

 Is that per month or per year?

My kids go to Christian private school. Its 1,400 for my little ones and more for my oldest son but we pay 600 a month for all 4 kids. That is such a blessing.

 That's not terrible.  One of my boys will be in pre k this year and the other in 3rd grade.  It will cost us $1600 a month for the both at our top choice school.  I just keep telling myself that it will be all worth it.
