TUITION

 

Trinity Christian School makes every effort to maintain reasonable tuition through careful planning and financial stewardship. Tuition is approved annually by the School Board. Tuition schedules are available each February for the following year.

For a complete Tuition Schedule, you can view our 2018-19 schedule, or request additional information here.

Book pack fees are charged separately because they represent a product for students to own. While some schools will have students pay for all their books, we limit our book packs to just those works of literature we want students to mark up and then keep for their own personal libraries. Contact your respective principal if you would like to see a list of books included in each grade’s book pack.

  • 3rd Grade - 6th Grade: $60
  • 7th - 12th Grade: $150

To help make our school as affordable as possible, Trinity Christian School also hosts a used uniform sale each summer. For details about this year’s sale, please check our Facebook for updates. 

FINANCIAL AID

Trinity Christian School offers financial aid for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 based on the need of the family and is awarded on an annual basis. Financial Aid is not available for part-time Home School Extension students, Pre-Kindergarten, Junior Kindergarten or our Summer Advantage Program. 

The Financial Aid is funded by Trinity's Parent Teacher Fellowship, individual donors, community foundation grants, and in part by our school’s operating budget. Funds are limited.

Families requesting assistance must have an admissions application on file with the school to be considered. The Financial Aid application is to be completed annually on-line at www.factstuitionaid.com. FACTS Grant Aid charges a $30 non-refundable application fee per family. On-line applications are due mid-March; award notification letters will be sent out by mid-April.

Families receiving financial assistance are strongly encouraged to participate and volunteer in Campus Work Days, Makahiki and/or to serve the school in ways in which they are gifted.
