In a Time Such as This…

“We are doing everything possible for you to be able to attend CVCA.”

A Valuable Investment

The investment in a CVCA education prepares students academically, spiritually, and socially for life beyond high school:

  • The Class of 2019 was offered over $10.8 million in college scholarships.
  • Nearly 100% of the class of 2019  were accepted to and attend a four-year college or university.
  • 81% accepted into a 2019 US News and World Report “Best Colleges” school.
  • 99% of students who participate in CVCA’s Schools of Distinction enter college with a declared major.
  • More than 60% of the Class of 2019 graduated CVCA with multiple college credits through AP course offerings.



Tuition Assistance

To assist families who otherwise would be unable to afford full tuition payments, CVCA offers a variety of programs to help bridge the financial gap. Approximately 40% of CVCA students receive some form of tuition assistance which can cover up to 65% of tuition cost. For the 2019-2020 school year, nearly $1.3 million in tuition assistance and scholarships was awarded to students.

Scaled Tuition

With a newly restructured tuition scale, we’ve created an entry point that allows more families to consider a CVCA education. More Information>>

EdChoice Scholarships

EdChoice Scholarships are provided by state law for students assigned to underperforming public schools and students who qualify due to low income.

Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP)

Pandemic Assistance

We desire to weather this storm in a Christ-honoring manner – working together with care and compassion.

Knowing that the uncertainty of these times makes decision-making a significant challenge, our goal is to work with families to enable student(s) to experience a Christ-centered education at CVCA. We understand many families’ concerns regarding financial assistance and can help evaluate aid options. We encourage you to proceed through the following steps:

      1. Many families who have experienced loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic may now qualify for the EdChoice Expansion Scholarship. To find out, please contact Mindy Fullerton.
      2. Please complete the Emergency Assistance Application available HERE.

    Tuition Assistance FAQs

    When and how do I apply for tuition assistance?

    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 HERE>> through the FACTS website.

    How is my tuition assistance taken off my balance?

    Tuition Assistance 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 assistance will I receive if I apply?

    The amount of assistance 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 65% of total tuition.

    Do I have to apply for assistance 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 tuition assistance?

    Yes. The same procedures apply to pastors. All tuition assistance is based on need.

    What other kinds of assistance 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.

    Who do I contact with an unanswered question?

    Please feel free to email Matt Comrie, Accounting Manager, with any further questions.
