Financial Assistance

While Grace Christian Academy has limited funds available for financial assistance, it is our desire to make a Christ-centered, academically excellent education available to as many families as possible each school year. All financial aid is awarded based on demonstrated need and is assessed through an independent third party program, FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.

Each request is reviewed carefully and prayerfully to ensure the best answer for your student and family. The principles below are followed in the financial aid process:

  • Financial aid awards will not be granted until your child has been accepted at Grace Christian Academy.
  • The financial aid process is totally confidential.
  • Financial aid awards will be made without regard to race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin.
  • Awards must be renewed each year based on current financial need, as determined by the financial aid committee using the School and Student Service evaluation data.
  • Students who participate in High School athletic programs in grades 8-12 will not be eligible for financial assistance due to TSSAA guidelines (Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association).

When to Apply

Prospective families should apply for financial assistance when they submit an application for admission. Families may begin applying for financial assistance on January 1st, 2017.
