The deadline to be considered in the first round of awards for the 2020-2021 school year is May 4, 2020.
The School Board at Big Valley Christian School is aware that many families are affected by the rising cost of tuition. In an effort to make Christian education affordable to as many as possible, the School Board is pleased to offer tuition assistance to those who qualify. Tuition Assistance is offered to families who have students in TK – 12th grade only. It does not apply to our preschool program.
We have enlisted the services of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to help us evaluate requests for financial aid. FACTS works with nearly 5,000 educational institutions and over a million families each year. FACTS processes and recommends tuition assistance based on a thorough and professional financial needs assessment. FACTS provides third-party objectivity and will make a recommendation to the School Board who will, in turn, make the final decision regarding tuition assistance awards.
To apply for tuition assistance, you must complete the following steps:
Complete the online BVCS registration materials and pay the registration fee.
If you have never applied for Tuition Assistance, you must contact Marsha Holbrook at (209) 571-4357 for details about tuition awards. If you are re-applying for Tuition Assistance, you do not need to contact Mrs. Holbrook again, but you must complete the FACTS online application again each year.
After registration materials are completed, the registration fee is paid, and you have talked with Mrs. Holbrook, click on the link below to the FACTS website to complete your online application. A $35 application fee is required by FACTS and is not refundable.
After you have completed the FACTS online application, you will receive a confirmation email requesting documentation to be submitted to FACTS. You will need to have your 2019 completed tax documents at this step. Be sure your documentation has the school name on it. If you have questions about the FACTS application process or about the tuition assistance program, please contact Marsha Holbrook at (209) 571-4357.
