Tuition Assistance

It is our desire that Valley Christian School families with financial needs–both returning and first-year that have registered–would be offered tuition assistance.

Apply Now

Tuition assistance is open to families with Full Day Kindergarten through Eighth grade children.  For current families tuition assistance closes May 1st.  Since a limited amount of assistance is available, we encourage families to apply as early as possible.  Tuition Assistance application opens November 1st for the following school year.  Those that receive assistance are responsible to complete 15 additional hours of service above the regular hours of service to VCS during the school year.

Application Steps

VCS partners with the non-profit School and Student Services (SSS) by National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) in our tuition assistance process.  SSS charges a fee for completing the application, currently $48 (subject to change).  SSS waives the application fees for the families most in need of financial help.  For more information, please download this helpful flyer from SSS–Applying for Financial Aid.
