Trinity Lutheran Christian School will always try to support the financial assistance needs
of our qualified families. We understand the costly challenges of providing your child with
an education that is both academically sound and spiritually based. It’s for this reason
that a great effort is put into the evaluation of the many applications we receive to
determine how the limited available funds can be best utilized for families with the
Trinity Lutheran Christian School (TLCS) uses an independent third-party organization
(FACTS) to evaluate our family’s financial aid applications. FACTS can acquire the
documentation needed from our families and make a recommendation based on the
financial information provided. You must complete the FACTS application by the deadline
given to be considered for financial aid. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Admissions decisions are made prior to and separate from the evaluation of financial aid
applications. TLCS offers financial aid regardless of race, religion, or ethnic origin. All
information provided on financial aid applications is held strictly confidential between
TLCS and FACTS, and we ask that all recipients of financial aid keep their award
confidential as well.
TLCS requires a family’s lifestyle to reflect its choice to make education a top priority. We
expect families to evaluate their lifestyle and understand that some sacrifices need to be
made in order to support their child’s education in a Christian school setting. It would be
our understanding that any family who wishes to apply for financial aid has eliminated
many of the luxuries surrounding their family model and considered only the necessities
as they make an effort to provide an education for their child. Things to consider would
be the purchase of extravagant homes, automobiles, social club memberships, vacations
and other personal luxuries such as one parent choosing to be unemployed without a
special extenuating circumstance.
Parents who choose a Christian education for their children must understand that they
are responsible for the timely tuition payments for their child’s education. We
understand that not all family models consist of two parents living in one household but
we do expect two parents to support their child’s education. In very few circumstances
do we see only one parent involved in a child’s life and we evaluate the need for financial
aid on a case by case consideration. We hope and expect the majority of the families that
do have two parents involved in their child’s academic life to fully participate and be
responsible for the financial obligation for the tuition of their child being enrolled at TLCS.
Financial Aid funds are only available when we have supported, successful fundraisers
and the generosity of contributors who value a Christian education. We count on these
fundraising efforts and outside contributions to give the truly lesser fortunate families the
opportunity to enroll their child in a Christian school setting.
It is our goal to see our students thrive in a safe environment with teachers and staff that
care for them as they mature and grow physically, socially and academically over the
years they attend TLCS.
