2019-2020 School Year
Dear Financial Aid Applicant:
CVCS stands committed to providing a Christian school education to all families regardless of their social and economic status. We do not believe that God would have us eliminate anyone because of their inability to pay; however, CVCS is accountable to God for its wise stewardship of finances.
We recognize families desire impartiality and respect for their privacy concerning finances; therefore, Development Testing Services will evaluate your financial need. The application process is described below.
- Step 1: Go to the link provided and complete the online application by May 1st, 2019. You will need to use your FACTS username and password to log into the Financial Aid Application. Since all types of assistance require an evaluation of your family’s need, a Tuition Assistance Application must be completed (please refer to the application for processing options and related fees). In addition, a copy of last year’s Federal Income Tax Return must be provided to the CVCS Admissions Office by May 7, 2019. If you believe you have unusual or extenuating circumstances which you would like the Financial Aid Committee to take into consideration, please provide a letter of explanation to the CVCS Admissions Office as well. The personal information, which you are required to provide in applying for financial assistance, will be kept in strictest confidence.
Please be advised that CVCS considers awarding financial assistance to those applicants who (1) have paid their 2018-2019 tuition and fees in a timely manner; (2) have submitted their application FACTS by May 1, 2019 (including all documentation requested for the verification process); (3) have submitted a copy of their 2018 Federal Income Tax Return to CVCS no later than May 7, 2019. Unfortunately, applicants who do not submit all of the required documentation by these deadlines may not be considered for financial assistance.
- Step 2: Before your application for financial assistance can be considered by CVCS, the student(s) must be registered and accepted by CVCS for the upcoming year. This requires that a new family be interviewed and accepted with the CVCS registration fee paid in full for each child.
- Step 3: FACTS Grant and Aid will provide CVCS with a report indicating the monthly amount your family can contribute towards your child(ren)’s education. The Financial Aid Committee will then consider all applications individually and determine a level of assistance for each family within the framework of the operating budget for the forthcoming year.
- Step 4: You will be notified by the Admissions Office in writing around June 28th, 2019, of the amount of financial aid that can be granted, as well as the procedures for how that aid will be provided and the payment plan chosen by the family for the remainder of the cost
Please be advised that in the event of a change in your financial circumstances during the review process or the 2019-2020 CVCS school year, you must report it to the CVCS Admissions Office. Should CVCS determine a family has not reported any changes in financial circumstances during the review process or the school year, the financial assistance will be withdrawn.
If you have any questions or need assistance in completing the application, please contact the Admissions Office at (717) 264-3266, extension 147.
In His Service,
Financial Aid Committee
