Presbyterian Pan American School (PPAS) strives to keep the cost of tuition, room and board at an affordable cost. Gifts from Presbyterian governing bodies, congregations, church members, and foundations help to cover part of the operating costs. The fee for tuition, room and board includes instruction, books, learning aids, room and meals while school is in session during the academic year. Also included is a student group accident insurance plan.
