AFFORDING GRACE CASCADE
Grace Cascade Christian Schools is committed to keeping tuition affordable and making tuition assistance available to families with a demonstrated need. To apply for need-based tuition assistance, please follow the link toward the bottom of this page.
Tuition Assistance funds are limited so the process to receive funds is competitive. Awards are given on a first-come, first-served basis, so early application provides the most opportunity to benefit from this program!
EARLY APPLICATION PERIOD FOR 2018-2019 SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS: Applying for needs-based tuition assistance for the 2019-2020 school year will be open from March 1st through March 15th to families that have volunteered 10 or more hours during the 2018-2019 school year. Qualifying applications must be received and completed no later than MARCH 15, 2019 to be considered prior to general applicants.
As Customary, FACTS Grant & Aid will open to all families on March 15, 2019.
Award amounts vary but will not exceed 50% of a family’s calculated need, as determined by FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment. For example, if your demonstrated need is calculated to be 80%, you may be eligible to receive an award equaling up to 40% of tuition.
Application for tuition assistance is made through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment (FGAA), a need-based financial aid analysis service. FGAA is a well-established company, recognized and endorsed by the Association for Christian Schools International (ACSI), serving nearly 5,000 private and faith-based schools nationwide. All information is kept confidential. FGAA shares their assistance recommendations with Grace Cascade’s Tuition Committee, which determines final awards and notifies applicants.
*Tuition Assistance awards are valid only for the school year for which they are awarded. Application for assistance must be made annually.
*Tuition assistance funds are made available through the generous donations from friends of Grace Cascade Christian Schools. The school receives no Federal grant money to subsidize our Tuition Assistance Program.
All tuition assistance for the 2018-2019 school year has been awarded. Application for 2019-2020 school year will be available March 15, 2019.
Families applying for admission to Grace Cascade Christian Schools
*The application for Tuition Assistance is separate and unique from the application for admission to Grace Cascade Christian Schools.
*The Application for Admission must be started by the time the Tuition Assistance application is submitted. HOWEVER, you may wait to complete and submit the Application for Admission until you receive notification of your Tuition Assistance Award. (We understand this may be necessary if your decision to apply for admission is contingent upon your Tuition Assistance Award.)
*Families in the application process for admission to Grace Cascade are required to complete the admissions and registration processes within two weeks of receiving notification of a tuition assistance award.
