Financial Assistance

 

Christ Academy Scholarships & Grants

Tuition assistance grants and scholarships are made for one year only and, therefore, you must reapply each year. Award determination for all financial assistance will be made by the time contracts are issued. Because financial aid funds are limited and demand is high, late filing of materials may result in no award.

If you need more information or assistance, please contact the Admissions Office.  We look forward to working with you on your child's education at Christ Academy.
