REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT PLANS:

1) The Registration Fee will be applied to the total tuition being charged and will remain the same regardless of financial aid or applicable discount.

2) The Registration Fee due at the time of application and is non-refundable. Application is not complete until this fee is paid in full. Regular enrollment ends August 9th. Late enrollment requires an additional $ 100 processing fee.

3) Tuition may be paid in ten monthly payments (August – May) with the first payment due by Aug 10, 2019 or Aug 20, 2019.

4) Parents are expected to satisfy current school year balance by May 31, 2020, with the exception of 8th grade, which must be paid by March 31, 2020.

5) Monthly payment is due on the tenth or the twentieh day of the month and is required to be auto debited unless it has been previously paid in full.

6) Monthly payments will be rendered without additional charge by Direct Debit via enrollment with FACTS. There is a one time per family account fee charged by FACTS.

7) If family elects to finance tuition, there will be an insurance protection fee of 1.5% due with the first payment in August. The 1.5% is based upon the total tuition due (after financial aid and applicable discounts are applied). i.e. $8,500 tuition - $1,000 financial aid - $ 7,500 balance = $ 112.50. Insurance protects family and school from unexpected withdrawals.

FINANCIAL AID

 At Trinity Lutheran, 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 need, and your family philosophy and our philosophy!


That’s why at Trinity Lutheran Christian School, the first and most important consideration is what is educationally best for your child. All other considerations are secondary. That being said, we know that money is an important consideration for any parent.


Therefore, as part of our Christian ministry, Trinity Lutheran Christian School provides needs based scholarship assistance to help provide a solid Christian education to children in Harford County.  Working with families who share our vision and values, our goal is to provide the opportunities of Christian education to children of varying incomes, races, and family situations.


At Trinity Lutheran Christian School, financial aid is a ministry, the ministry of opportunity. Our financial aid decisions are guided by the very same Biblical principles integrated into our entire educational program.


Opportunity at its essence, needs-based financial aid represents opportunity for children of all races, sexes, and income levels. Financial aid is a profound opportunity…


…the opportunity for a better education,

…the opportunity for better college,

…the opportunity for more college scholarship help,

…the opportunity to be better fathers, mothers, husbands, wives and guardians,

…the opportunity to give oneself to a lifetime of service,

…the opportunity to live a set apart life, a life of distinction, and

…the opportunity to spend eternity in bliss with our Loving Heavenly Father. 


In short, financial aid at Trinity Lutheran is an opportunity for children and families who are like-minded and willing to rise above their circumstance to fully achieve God’s high calling in their lives.
First and foremost at Trinity Lutheran Christian School 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.  This is the reason why we have a very liberal needs-based financial aid program – more so than other schools in our area – to assist families who demonstrate a financial need.


Trinity Lutheran Christian School desires to partner with families to make Christian education an option financially.


Our Ministry-Based Philosophy of Tuition and Financial Aid is built on a Biblically-based sustainable financial model that provides for the ongoing expansion and improvement of the educational services we offer.


  • We will seek to attract and integrate students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
  • To the greatest extent possible, any child from a motivated family will not be denied admission solely because of lack of financial resources to pay our tuition.
  • Our tuition rate will increasingly reflect the full cost to educate each child as well as enabling us to better accomplish our educational mission into the future.
  • We believe parents should be invested in the education of their child and be willing to pay all they can afford toward tuition and fees. We recognize this may require families to stretch their budgets and rearrange their priorities.
  • All financial aid for qualifying families is needs-based on a case-by-case basis, utilizing an objective, confidential, verified third-party financial aid needs assessment process.
  • We will offer significant aid and award it in a manner that will allow as many families as possible to have the opportunity to attend Trinity Lutheran Christian School.


************************************************************************************************  

Financial Aid is available for our families with a maximum of $2,125 per student. Application should be made as early as possible as financial aid will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. An application must be completed prior to making a request for financial aid to ensure availability of class placement. APPLICATIONS FOR FINANCIAL AID MUST BE RECEIVED BY JULY 31ST IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE UPCOMING SCHOOL YEAR.

REFUNDS:

1) All fees are refunded (with the exception of the testing fee) if Trinity Lutheran Christian School cannot accept the child. Acceptance is contingent on student’s developmental readiness and space availability.

2) All requests for refunds or withdrawals must be requested in writing and received in the office prior to the deadline detailed in the enrollment application.

3) The Registration Fee is non-refundable following the acceptance of your child’s registration.

4) Withdrawals received on or before March 31, 2019  for the school year 2019/20 will be honored with a refund of only the amount paid in excess of the non-refundable Registration Fee due at time of registration. There will be no refunds for withdrawals after April 1, 2019. The parent or guardian is responsible for the entire year’s tuition, payable by December 1, of each new school year unless otherwise agreed on by school and parents.
