Q: What is the tuition cost? A: Tuition is $880 per trimester for each of the 3 trimesters, for both of the first 2 years. The  first year is called the Supernatural Destiny School (SDS). The SDS is divided into 3 trimesters, with each trimester tuition of $880, for a total cost of $2,640 per year. The second year is called the Supernatural Success School (S3). The S3 is divided into 3 trimesters, with each trimester tuition of $880, for a total cost of $2,640 per year. You can also  get a discount on your tuition by paying for all three trimesters for the year at once. To receive the discount, all three Trimesters, for either First or Second Year, must be paid before the posted deadline. Tuition for either First or Second Year is then only $2,500 total.

The third & fourth year studies are called the Discipling the Nations through Arts, Media & Entertainment Schools (DNA-ME).
