WHAT IS FACTS?

Your account will first be utilized throughout the admissions process and then throughout your time as a family at KCC. It will also be connected to your payment preferences, which will be used for paying tuition and fees as well as other incidental billing throughout the school year.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

We offer need-based financial aid in order to make Christian education affordable to all families at KCC. Our allocation of financial aid is overseen by our school’s Finance Team, with 50% of tuition being the maximum amount given to any family.

Application for financial aid is handled through FACTS and can be accessed through the online application process. Applying for financial aid is separate from the application/enrollment process, but can be completed simultaneously. Applications for financial aid (one per family) should be submitted when you begin the application/enrollment process. There is a one-time, non-refundable $35 application fee. Financial aid will not be awarded until the enrollment process is complete.

Should every new or returning Kansas City Christian family submit an application for financial assistance?

No. Only families who feel that they are not able to pay full tuition should submit an application.

Do I need to apply for assistance every year?

Yes, a new application must be submitted every year. Returning students can apply beginning in March.

If I do not qualify for the program this year, can I apply again next year?

Yes. A family that does not qualify is welcome to reapply the following year.

Do returning students receive priority over new students when applying for financial assistance?

Yes. Re-enrolling Kansas City Christian students who submit an application by the published deadline will receive priority consideration.

Are all admitted students offered financial assistance if the family qualifies?

No. Unfortunately, the school does not have the ability to offer assistance to every student who qualifies for both admission and financial assistance. A student may be admitted to the school but placed on a waiting list for financial assistance.

Do I need to apply for admission separately from applying for financial assistance?

Yes. For new students, an application for admission to the school must be submitted before an application for financial assistance. For returning students, the re-enrollment contract must be completed before the financial assistance application.

Are some families awarded full tuition?

No. Every family is required to make a financial investment in their child’s education. Our commitment to providing financial assistance means that we are sharing in that investment with you. No family will receive more than 50% assistance with tuition.

Who should I contact with questions about financial assistance?
