Fremont Christian School (FCS) strives to assist all eligible students in securing the finances necessary to attend the school. We offer confidential, need-based assistance contingent upon the funds available at the time of disbursement. Tuition assistance awards do not require re-payment. Although the admission and tuition assistance processes are separate, they do occur simultaneously. Requests for tuition assistance are usually made at the time of the initial admission inquiry

Your child must be a returning student or a current admission applicant to be considered for tuition assistance. 

In order to continue to receive assistance in successive years, students awarded tuition assistance must meet the academic and disciplinary good standing expected of all students at Fremont Christian School. Families must re-apply each year for tuition assistance, and awards may vary depending on changes in a family's finances. In separated or divorced families, please provide all legal documentation that clearly states each parent’s financial responsibility for their child’s educational costs. 

Please note that tuition assistance is not available for international students.
