Financial Assistance

Student Scholarships & Financial Aid

One part of accomplishing the CVCA mission is assisting families with the financial costs through both need-based and merit-based financial aid.

CVCA has a Financial Aid Program to assist families who otherwise might not be able to afford their tuition payments. In 2015-16, we awarded over $1.3 million in financial assistance to our students. Financial aid is awarded based on a needs-based evaluation of each applicant’s family financial situation. All financial aid application information is held in strict confidence.




The total cost of a year of tuition at CVCA is $10,250. A student may combine multiple types of financial aid to help reduce this cost. If financial aid or scholarships are awarded, your contract will be adjusted to reflect those awards and you will receive a notice prior to your first payment.


Late Enrollment & Withdrawl

If you choose to withdraw after July 1 but prior to the first day of school, you will be responsible to pay one month of tuition (as part of our new school policy). For changes in enrollment status during the year, tuition is pro-rated on a quarterly basis. Students entering or withdrawing from CVCA during a given quarter will be responsible to pay for the full quarter.


Application For Financial Aid

  • New Students: Applications for Financial Aid are embedded in the Application for Admission and in the Online Enrollment Packet, available here.
  • Current/Re-Enrolling Students: You must re-enroll via the Re-Enrollment Packet found in ParentsWeb in order to apply for Financial Aid each year.

What is the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan?
CVCA utilizes the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan, which is an automatic cash transfer plan taking payment through checking and savings accounts, as well as credit cards. Contracts for new and returning families should be created during the enrollment process, and become active in June. Upon activation, a one-time financing fee of $65 will be deducted from your account.
Will you send me a bill each month if I’m participating in the FACTS plan?
No. Your bank statement will show the amount withdrawn each month from your account. The contract that you sign at the time of your interview or at re-registration time will indicate your monthly payment and the date of withdraw. FACTS will send you an email confirmation of any changes to your contract.
I prefer not to pay tuition through my checking or savings account. It is too difficult to keep records. What can I do?
You can open an account for your student’s tuition, deposit the amount of the tuition to be withdrawn on a monthly or quarterly basis, or you can pay in full by July 15th.
What if we must withdraw our student, and I have paid in full? Will I get a refund?
Yes. Your tuition is pro-rated on a quarterly basis. You will be charged a full quarter for any portion of the quarter that your student attends CVCA. The balance will be refunded.
When and how do I apply for financial aid?
As soon as your student has re-registered or applied for the upcoming school year, and the registration or application fee is paid, you should apply online for Financial Aid by March 31.
How is my financial aid taken off my balance?
Financial Aid is awarded before your first payment. The Finance Office informs FACTS Management of the amount of the decrease, and a new balance and monthly payment are generated. You will receive a letter stating your new balance and your new monthly payment.
How much aid will I receive if I apply?
The amount of aid depends primarily on financial need. Other factors such as student activities, academic progress, volunteer involvement, and the number of children attending Christian schools are also considered. The maximum award is up to 60% of total tuition.
Do I have to apply for aid every year?
Yes! Circumstances may change during a school year, so we must obtain new information each year to make a decision.
I am a pastor. Do I have to apply for financial aid?
Yes. The same procedures apply to pastors. All financial aid is based on need.
What other kinds of aid are available?
Additional financial assistance may come from your church or someone interested in Christian Education. We are not responsible to solicit these funds; you must inquire about such help. Also, tuition can be reduced by participating in our TRIP program.
