Let’s make this work.
The purpose of the variable tuition program is to make Christian education accessible to more families, by providing a reduced rate. We base reduced rates on each family’s specific financial situation. Variable tuition is a need-based financial aid structure – similar to those used by other private schools, colleges, and universities. Any family in need of assistance may apply. Preschool families must be in our 5-day program to be considered for variable tuition.
Factors like income, family circumstances, and the cost of living in the Fredericksburg region, are reviewed by a third party: FACTS Grant & Aid. Each request is then reviewed by the FCS Financial Aid Committee, who makes the final award. Currently, 64% of our existing families receive some form of discount or aid. By making a Fredericksburg Christian Schools education more financially possible, we will have the opportunity to utilize our exceptional staff, and available classroom space.
