Tuition Assistance

Financial Aid

Central Christian School provides a limited amount of need-based, partial financial aid (up to 50% of tuition) for qualifying 3K-6th families. 

Central partners with FAST (Financial Aid for Student Tuition) to manage our financial aid process. FAST provides Central a need-based financial aid analysis service which ensures our process for establishing financial need adheres to nationally established standards of best practice. All information from FAST is kept confidential, as is all information pertaining to a family's financial aid request.

Financial Aid grants are made for one year only and, therefore, a family must reapply each year. To start the process, click here to visit FAST now. The application process is self-guided. The applicant can partially complete an application and go back to it at another time.  

For prospective families, the financial aid application is due with your admissions application. Funds will be distributed to qualifying families are they remain available.

Online, email, and a 24/7 helpline is provided via FAST.  The charge for the application is $43.00, to be paid by credit card at the end of the session.

After completing the online application, the family will be required to mail your 2017 tax returns for both State and Federal taxes with all schedules and W-2's to:

FAST Processing
ISM
1316 North Union Street
Wilmington DE 19806-2594

Including Central Christian School's name on the outside of the envelope will ensure faster processing of your family's application. 

If your family needs more information or assistance, please contact Christan Perona, Director of Admissions and Communications, via email or phone (314.727.4535).

We look forward to working with your family during the admissions process at Central Christian School.  Again, please note that any financial aid applications submitted after the deadline will be awarded aid only as funds allow.

Scholarships

For families that qualify for more than the maximum award, we are thankful to offer additional funds via scholarships. Similar to Financial Aid funds, Scholarship funds are also limited. Additionally, the amount of scholarships available fluctuates annually since they are provided by specific fundraisers, anonymous donors, and our Ditto partnership. We aim to grow these funds and create opportunities to welcome more families for whom tuition is a prohibitive financial barrier.
