If family elects to complete the variable tuition/financial aid application:
The family visits the school website or meets with the school rep to create an online account and enters its financial information, which creates a record for the family in the secure Seeds of Hope database. The school sets the family’s tuition based on: Shared formula; adjustments; 2017-2018 tuition; Taking into account a family’s eligibility for outside scholarships and aid. The school then communicates tuition and scholarship application responsibilities to the family via letter or contract from the pastor, principal and business manager.
If family chooses not to apply for financial aid or declines to share any personal financial data
The family pays full tuition (with multi-child discounts, if applicable).
In some cases, a family’s tuition may decrease based on its financial position.
If there is a large disparity between what a school currently charges and the per-student cost to educate, a family’s tuition in 2018-19 may increase slightly.
In either case, there will be no more than a 10 percent decrease or increase in tuition a family pays under the new Variable Tuition Program in 2018-19 versus what they paid in 2017-18.
Here are the schools that will be implementing the Variable Tuition Program in 2018-2019:
