Agape Christi offers need-based grants, as funds are available, to make tuition affordable for more families. We use a third-party organization to help us accurately and fairly assess a family’s ability to pay and, after review, we award grants accordingly. Confidential Financial Services (CFS) has been supporting Christian families for over 20 years. They understand the importance of you providing your child with a Christian education, which is why we are glad to partner with them in this, their area of expertise.
Their application includes a $40 fee. They will request financial information from you that primarily consists of income, expenses, assets, and debts. CFS uses that information to calculate an “ability to pay” amount and sends us a summary report. Once received, we will reach out to you to discuss the results.
Our goal is to make this wonderful education available to everyone possible. Therefore, our process then includes a review of your financial plan for improving financial health and gradually reducing grant reliance in future years. Your plan can be crafted by working with a financial counselor, a pastor, or with a member of our Board. Our meeting can also address ways you could possibly provide non-monetary contributions to the school in exchange for grant funds, as we are always delighted to have (and need) helping hands in a variety of areas.
