Financial Aid

 

Wheaton Christian Grammar School maintains a financial aid program to assist families in providing a Christian education for their children. Awards are made on the basis of each applicant family's financial need. New families can submit applications for financial aid only in conjunction with an admissions application.

What are the financial aid limits?

In general family gross income
less than $55,000 per year = up to 60% financial aid.
from $55-$65,000 per year = up to 50% financial aid.
from $65-$75,000 per year = up to 40% financial aid.
from $75-$85,000 per year = up to 30% financial aid.
from $85-$95,000 per year = up to 20% financial aid.
from $95-$120,000 per year = up to 10% financial aid.

Are awards every made outside the financial parameters listed above?  Yes!  The circumstances below also affect the amount that may be awarded:

  • Funds available for tuition assistance
  • Number of applicants relative to funds available
  • Number of dependents in your family
  • Number of your children enrolled at WCGS
  • Other extenuating circumstances as noted on the financial aid application

How do I apply?

Complete the current year Financial Aid Application and attach the required federal tax return.  [Financial aid forms for the 2018-2019 school year will be available by early spring, 2018.]  All questions must be answered fully.  Return the application to Mrs. Vange Schock, Business Director.  Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant.  Continuing school families should apply for aid by April 18, 2017 (2018 date to be posted in early 2018) in order to be considered in the first round of awards in early May.  New applicants to WCGS should wait until an offer of enrollment has been made before applying for financial aid. 

Confidentiality of application

All personal financial information is held in the strictest confidence.  Applications will be reviewed by the Business Director.  A financial aid committee comprised of school administrators and selected Board members will review the recommendations of the Business Director.  In the course of the review, special circumstances related to the applicant family's ability to pay the tuition charged may be discussed.  Personal financial data reported on the application may be disclosed to certain members of the committee, but only on a need-to-know basis.
