Tuition Grants

Why does ECS award Tuition Grants?

Evangelical Christian School desires a student body that reflects the full diversity of the Christian community in our area. ECS realizes that not all Christian families can afford to pay the full costs of an excellent Christian education. Therefore, ECS provides a need-based tuition grant program to make an ECS education possible for families who might otherwise be unable to afford it. New families must have a student who has been admitted and contracted for the upcoming school year before they can be considered for a Tuition Grant.

Determining Financial Need

Determining financial need starts with establishing a family’s ability to pay for the private education of its children. ECS relies upon an independent organization, FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment (FACTS), to establish each family’s expected financial contribution to education. Using information supplied by the family, FACTS's calculation considers family size, income from all sources, expenses to support a minimal standard of living, assets, and debts. (The calculation excludes consumer debt [credit cards, ar loans, etc.] and debts in excess of assets.) FACTS reports its calculations to ECS.

Upon receipt of the FACTS report, ECS determines need. ECS defines need as the amount by which tuition will exceed a family’s expected financial contribution to education as calculated by FACTS.

Awarding Tuition Grants

ECS offers tuition grants only to contracted families with demonstrated financial need, and its grants normally meet only a portion of the need. ECS’s grant funds are limited. ECS does not offer grants once its funds are exhausted for a school year. When tuition grant requests exceed available funds, ECS selects recipients based upon several criteria including but not limited to the date it received the completed financial aid application and the family's support for the mission of ECS.

ECS will award a tuition grant to a family only after (1) the family has returned the enrollment contract with the required deposit; and (2) ECS has received the report from FACTS with its calculation of the family's expected financial contribution to education.

Procedures and Deadlines

ECS seeks to manage its tuition grant program on principles of confidentiality, concern for our students and their families, and good stewardship of resources. New families may apply for a tuition grant prior to admission, though ECS will not award a grant before ECS offers admission. Re-enrolling ECS families must reapply for a tuition grant annually. Please see the 2017-2018 information listed below for procedures and deadlines.
