Students and families are responsible for additional academic, athletic and extracurricular fees, as they choose to participate in selected activities. For example: dual credit courses outside of J-Term, extraordinary J-Term classes such as Welding, Driver Education and trips, Advance Placement exams, academic clubs, sports/drama/music participation, practice packs, retreats, and t-shirts.
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.
Our many opportunities for different types of Aid and Scholarships are listed and explained below.
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.
The application window opens on October 15 for the following school year. February 15 is the “early bird” deadline for returning families, after which a 20% reduction in private financial aid will be implemented. The final application deadline for returning families is April 15. Returning families include those graduating a senior this year and starting another student next year. If there is a gap between your students attending Covenant, you then become a new family again.
New families will not experience a 20% reduction after February 15 and can continue to apply after the April 15 deadline. However, funds are limited. Once the available amount of private financial aid is consumed, there will be no more awards. Consequently, early application is encouraged.
To make these earlier application and award decisions possible, FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will not require your 2018 Form 1040 Federal Tax Return. We have authorized them to use your 2017 return. Consequently, you do not need to wait and file this year’s tax return in order to apply for the 2019-2020 school year.
Beginning March 1, a rolling financial aid notification process will begin.
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.
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.
Financial aid awards do not automatically renew from year to year, and returning families must re-apply for each school year. Tuition assistance awards are for one academic year only. New applications are required each school year.
