We believe that Christ-centered education is vitally important to Christian families. It follows that no child should be denied a Christ-centered education because of finances. (This is one of the primary reasons we do fund-raising.) Since the body of Christ is made up of members from various economic levels, we have made some provisions for those who cannot afford our tuition. There are many principles in Scripture that apply to this issue. “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need, but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” (1 John 3:17) It should be noted that private education in a Christian environment will always require commitment and sacrifice on the part of the parents.
Applying for Financial Aid
Spring Hill Christian utilizes the help of FACTS School Management’s Grant and Aid Assessment to determine aid eligibility. Financial aid applications can be made at www.factstuitionaid.com. Applications can be found in the front office. Once SHA receives reports from FACTS and reviews the data, the Board will allocate available funds. Once these decisions are finalized, letters will be sent to each of the financial aid applicants.
Extent of Aid
The amount of aid will be based on need and will apply only to tuition. Book costs remain the responsibility of the family. No family will receive 100% grant; few families will receive a 50% grant.
The grants generally range from 10% to 50%.
The school’s financial aid program does not provide full tuition for any family. Even families on extremely limited incomes will be required to pay a portion of their children’s tuition. In fact, the more a family personally invests in their child’s Christian education (time, resources, and talent) the more they are apt to appreciate it and, as a family, benefit from it.
Families can apply online beginning immediately at www.factstuitionaid.com.
