We understand the decision to enroll in ICS is carefully weighed against the resources available.  Because some families may need tuition assistance, we have a Tuition Assistance program for those demonstrating genuine financial need. Tuition Assistance is made available by a designated amount in our annual budget as well as through funds donated specifically for that purpose. An application must be submitted annually for all families requesting assistance. Please click the questions and answers below for additional important details.

Q: Who should apply? A: Any family may apply if they can demonstrate financial need.

Families that have made ICS a financial priority and still do not have enough resources available to cover their child’s tuition should apply. All families are asked to conscientiously pursue other means of meeting their tuition needs (such as part-time employment, help from extended family members, utilizing savings, reducing expenses, etc.) before asking the school for assistance.

An application must be submitted annually for all families requesting assistance.

Immanuel Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin.

Q: What is the maximum assistance a student can receive? A: Tuition can be reduced by up to 50%.

Tuition Assistance applies to tuition only. All other fees and charges are due in full. Assistance awards may range from 5% to a maximum of 50% of the net tuition due, after application of any appropriate discount.

Q: When should I apply? A: Applications and all documentation are due annually by MARCH 15th.

Returning families should apply for Tuition Assistance as soon as possible after January 1st and no later than March 15th. A current application MUST be submitted annually for all families requesting assistance.

New families may apply for Tuition Assistance AFTER submitting their initial enrollment application. The full enrollment deposit will be due; if assistance is approved, the outstanding balance will be adjusted. If you are applying for Admission after the Tuition Assistance deadline you should be aware that all available funding is usually awarded to those who apply by the deadline.

All documentation must be received on time. Incomplete applications cannot be reviewed.

There is no guarantee that assistance will continue for a family from year-to-year.

Q: When will I be notified of the decision? A: All applicants should receive notification by April 30th.

Q: If I apply for student admission after the Tuition Assistance deadline will there still be funds available? A: Usually no, but please check with the Finance Director.

Assistance is not withheld from qualifying families who submit their application by the deadline. All funding is usually awarded to those applying on time; however, you can confirm this with the Admissions Manager or Finance Director.
