Tuition Assistance

At Summit Christian Academy, our goal is that every qualified student has the opportunity to attend our school. We know that for many families, investing in this experience can be challenging. We also believe that economic diversity is important to the fabric of our community. For the 2021-22 school year, tuition assistance in the amount of $1.15 million was granted to 270 students in grades K-12, representing 130 families.

In order to be considered for tuition assistance you must first have submitted a Summit Christian Academy online admissions application.

Tuition assistance grants are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Families seeking tuition assistance must submit an online application to FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment, an independent, third-party organization that reviews financial data provided by families, providing recommendations to SCA for tuition assistance grant awards. Click the link at the end of this page to navigate to the FACTS website. The following information is required for FACTS to process your application:

  • Completed FACTS application.
  • Payment of the nonrefundable $35 application fee.
  • Copies of the previous year's tax forms including all supporting tax schedules.
  • Copies of the previous year's W-2 forms for both you and your spouse.
  • Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF.
  • Per SCA policy, to be considered for tuition assistance, accounts must be current or acceptable payment arrangements made on existing balances.

Our tuition assistance awards are tuition grants – a gift to your family – not a loan that needs to be repaid. SCA awards tuition grants up to 50% for qualified candidates. The SCA Tuition Assistance Committee makes the final determination of tuition assistance awards. Limited funding for additional hardship tuition grants may be available for unique extenuating circumstances.

We encourage you to apply for tuition assistance. If you have questions or concerns about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at 1-866-441-4637. Other questions may be directed to Courtney at SCA’s finance office using the form below or by calling 816-525-1480.
