Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

A CVCA education is more affordable than you think.

The investment made into a CVCA education prepares students academically, spiritually, and socially for life beyond high school. To assist families who otherwise would be unable to afford full tuition payments, Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy is blessed to be able to offer a variety of programs to provide a way to bridge the financial gap. For the 2017-2018 school year, approximately $1,300,000 in financial aid and scholarships was awarded to students. Financial aid is awarded on an as-needed basis and can cover up to 60% of the cost of tuition.

Financial Aid FAQs

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.

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.
