FOCUS Fostering Opportunities for Creativity and Uniqueness in Students
We desire to make Christian education available to all families who passionately desire their children to learn and know Christ at Shannon Forest Christian School. Accordingly, our School Board has budgeted tuition assistance for families based upon financial need. In order to provide families with complete confidentiality and objectivity, our school utilizes the services of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, a service of FACTS Management Company, Inc. The amount of money designated by the School Board is limited. Financial aid is awarded on an annual basis only; families must reapply annually and should not assume that the same amount will be awarded each year.
APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID:
ü Students must first be enrolled/re-registered for the school year in which they need financial aid and all applicable fees paid
ü Applications are available on www.factstuitionaid.com and must be completed by May 1
ü All accounts must be current
