Affording Western Christian School

Over 25% of WCS’ families receive tuition assistance each year. At Western Christian Schools, we strongly believe that Christian education is not a commodity. It’s a ministry. It’s a commitment. It’s a connection – a connection between your child’s needs and your family philosophy and our philosophy.

That’s why at Western Christian Schools, the first and most important consideration is what is best educationally for your child. All other considerations are secondary. But money IS important, and tuition is an investment into the life of your child. That’s why Western Christian Schools has one of the most robust needs-based tuition assistance program to assist families who demonstrate a financial need through our FACTS process. FACTS is an online, third party vendor that is highly confidential. Their goal is to assist in determining a financial need for our families. Our goal is that money will not stand in the way for qualified families.
