Tuition

At Palmetto Prep we pride ourselves in being the “best deal in the country” when it comes to tuition. You will find yourself paying $20,000 or more at Junior Colleges across the southeast. With the cost of regular college becoming more expensive every year it is very important that we keep our costs down so that your student-athlete can be successful. Our #1 goal is to get our players scholarships to 4-Year schools.

In 2015 and 2016 alone, 60 of our student-athletes received offers to play college football.

Each student-athlete is required to take a minimum of 6 (six) college credit hours through a local technical college. Also, ACT/SAT prep will be required for those who do not have adequate test scores. Those costs are below.
