Tuition & Financial Aid

As you come closer to registering with Foundation Christian School, we want to ensure you have all the information you need to consider. Many families are nervous at first about affording Christian education.  If that is you, you are not alone!  In fact, most families start out in Christian schools knowing they will have to make big adjustments, and do careful planning around affording the tuition.  In the end, it is worth it as an investment in your children, developing in them a Christian worldview, and providing them with deep learning.

New Registration Tuition Discount

We do what we can to help families afford the costs. Currently we have a New Registration Tuition Discount program. Foundation is offering a tuition reduction of $2,000 per family for new registrations for the 2020-2021 school year. This applies to any tuition level, including a single kindergarten student. As well, we will give those same families a second reduction of $1,000 per family in their second year of registration (2021-2022 school year). Our hope is this helps your family step into the costs of Christian education. This offer is limited to families who are new to Foundation Christian School (excluding international students), and registrations for the full 2020-2021 school year, pending availability of classroom space.

Tax Receipts

Foundation provides a federal donation receipt each year, if applicable, for a portion of your tuition paid. A tax receipt will be issued in the spring to reduce your income tax payable. Our Finance Manager will be happy to discuss information regarding receipts and donations.

Tuition Grid

Financial stewardship is important to us. We publish a tuition range in the early spring, within which tuition will be set each year. This helps families to plan their finances while we finalize our budget based on registration. The finalized tuition for 2020-2021 will be published here late spring. It will be set within the tuition range below:
