TUITION ASSISTANCE GUIDELINES
Students must register and be accepted at Trinity Christian School prior to applying for financial aid. All registration fees are non-refundable even if financial assistance is not granted. If the student is not accepted at TCS due to other factors, such as not passing the entrance test or poor behavioral history, registration fees will be returned. Current students of TCS will have priority for financial assistance, followed by Trinity Baptist Church members, and finally to new families at TCS. Additional financial aid is not available to families already receiving Step Up For Students corporate tax money or the McKay scholarship.
Trinity Christian School will utilize the online service of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST provides financial aid recommendations to the Trinity Christian School Council. The School Council reserves the right to conduct further reviews of applicants including verification of church involvement and the research of certain hardship cases to determine needs.
In addition to what is required for the online application, a personal letter explaining why you desire to have your child/children attend Trinity Christian School should be placed in a sealed envelope addressed to: Trinity Christian School Council. All information received will remain confidential. The letter must be received in the school office no later than May 2. 2016. All families will be notified of their status upon approval. Once the committee offers financial aid to a family, the family will be asked to sign an acceptance letter. If financial aid is granted, some volunteer work at TCS is required. If you received financial aid during 2015-2016 school year, please include in your letter to the council the ways that you volunteered. Financial aid is granted on an annual basis and can be discontinued at any time if the family does not abide by the criteria detailed below. Any money granted is subject to the number of applicants and available funding. Not all applicants will be granted financial aid.
Other criteria considered in awarding financial assistance:
Academic performance of student (maintain a 2.0 average)
Christian character of student
Disciplinary history of student
Parent cooperation and school involvement
TCS family financial accounts are current and account history may be reviewed
Trinity Christian School is striving to make Kingdom Education available to every family. Trinity Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnic background.
