Financial Assistance

We strive to make this educational experience available to all families that may require financial assistance. All inquiries, regardless of family income, are welcomed and encouraged.

Grace Lutheran School makes all admission decisions without regard to financial status. Families who have reviewed their financial situation and feel that help may be needed in paying tuition should apply for aid. Financial aid awards are available at any grade level to families who demonstrate need.

In determining need, the guidelines of the FACTS are used. Each award is individualized based upon the financial assessment of each applicant. It is important to note that Grace Lutheran School may not be able to accommodate all financial aid applicants in a given year. Applications received in the Principal’s Office beginning Feb. 4, 2019 will receive first priority relative to aid dollars available.

All families applying for financial aid for the first time should contact the Principal’s Office for an appointment to receive an application for the following school year. Families currently receiving aid must submit a new application each year. If the family’s financial circumstances remain the same, the school will make every effort to assist a family at the same level of aid.
