Are you aware that Grace Christian Schools (Grace Christian School and Cascade Christian High School) has more than $400,000 in needs-based financial assistance?
In order to be better stewards of staff and volunteer board member time, as well as precious school resources, Grace Christian Schools uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to conduct the financial needs analysis. Application is made online directly to FACTS at online.factsmgt.com/aid. Supporting documentation must be faxed or emailed directly to FACTS. You may begin the application process for the 2014-2015 school year on March 1, 2014.
FACTS charges a $30.00 processing fee per family (not per student) for their needs analysis service. This represents the cost of their service and is paid entirely to FACTS. Grace Christian Schools makes no profit on this service.
FACTS is a well-established company, recognized and endorsed by ACSI, serving nearly 5,000 private and faith-based schools nationwide. They are diligent to provide confidentiality and close security for all sensitive customer information.
Though information gathering and needs analysis are performed by FACTS, final award decisions are at the discretion of Grace Christian Schools. FACTS will make its recommendations based upon their many years of experience and service to thousands of schools, while recognizing that parent-student relationship are also a factor in this process.

Before applying, please be aware that:

- A Middle School family's ability to participate in the Grade 8 U.S. Historical Tour (a.k.a. "Washington D.C. Trip") will reduce their perceived need for financial assistance from the school. Please communicate with the school in writing if there is a special circumstance related to your student's participation (i.e., grandparents are funding the trip; student is working to earn his/her own way, etc.).
