Financial Grants & Aid

Calvary Chapel Schools is committed to providing excellence in all that we do, and while an excellent private education comes at a cost, we continue to strive to do all we can to make private education as affordable as possible. As part of that commitment, and out of a heart of generosity, Calvary Chapel Schools has created a financial aid and grant process whereby families who may need financial assistance can apply for assistance. If you would like to apply for financial aid, click here. If you would like to donate to our financial aid fund to help those who are in need of assistance, please click here.


Applying Through FACTS

In order to help us determine financial aid eligibility for prospective and current families, we partner with a third-party organization called FACTS Management Company. Using this independent, outside service ensures a confidential, fair, and consistent evaluation. The financial aid process is independent of the admissions process, and therefore a family's ability to pay full tuition is not factored into the admissions process. It is advised that families work on admissions and financial aid applications concurrently. 


*Please note that aid is not offered for Preschool tuition.
