Aid & Scholarship

Our many opportunities for different kinds of Aid and Scholarships are listed below. Please select the box you are interested in learning more about.

Need-based Aid

Privately funded.

Each year through the generosity of alumni, parents, students and friends, Covenant is able to award privately funded tuition assistance to many students who might not otherwise be able to afford Christian education. In fact, approximately one-third of our students receive some type of formal tuition assistance. Covenant is committed to making Christian education affordable. Our goal is to work with each family, understand their individual situation, and together explore financial solutions. If you are hesitant to consider Covenant for financial reasons, we encourage you to apply for tuition assistance. For many families, Covenant has become a reality through this avenue.

Families apply for tuition assistance through a third-party provider, FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, that provides financial aid assessments to private and faith-based schools nationwide. All family data will be collected, analyzed and returned to Covenant with a financial aid recommendation through the FACTS secure website.

Beginning the week ending Friday, March 17, we will begin a rolling financial aid notification process.

This action is different from our past practice of processing early decision applications submitted by March 15 followed by processing standard decision applications submitted by May 1.  Now, completed and verified applications by FACTS Grant Aid & Assessment from both returning and new families will be reviewed each week by the Financial Aid Committee.  Financial assistance awards will be determined and notification letters sent.

Our hope is this new process will assist most families by not having to wait until June 1 to learn of their financial aid package.  However, the danger for those families that wait until the end of the open application window on May 1 is that our financial aid budget may be exhausted prior to the consideration of their application.  Consequently, we strongly encourage you not to wait. Apply as soon as you complete your 2016 federal tax return.

Please remember that financial aid awards do not automatically renew from year to year, and returning families must re-apply for each school year. Also, your 2016 Form 1040 Federal Tax Return along with all associated schedules is required by FACTS for income and household size verification in order for your application to be classified as completed and verified.

In the case of parents who are separated or divorced, Covenant requires court documentation indicating which party or parties are responsible for the student's educational expenses, and all responsible households must complete an online financial aid application.

Tuition assistance awards are for one academic year only. New applications are required each school year.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this information, please submit them to financialaid@covenantchristian.org.

Merit-based Aid

Covenant Christian High School also offers merit-based awards to students and families based on the following criteria:

  • Student has demonstrated an excellent academic history
  • Student has received a significant award/recognition in the past 2 years
  • Student has previously attended a Christian organization
  • Parent/Guardian is a Full-time Faculty Staff member serving in a Christian Organization

If you believe you may qualify for one of these awards or have further questions, please contact donniefishburn@covenantchristian.org.
