Tuition, fees, and available financial support
At FCS we are dedicated to...
- Attracting and developing the highest quality faculty.
- Maintaining top-notch facilities and resources.
- Offering a breadth of programming (state-of-the-art labs, Artisan & STEM Diploma tracks, 52 different sports teams, music and theater performances).
- Providing abundant, co-curricular experiences outside the classroom, from community service and global missions opportunities, to field trips, spiritual retreats and non-traditional learning environments, such as outdoor classrooms and collaborative work spaces in the high school building.
A private education is an investment, and a big commitment.
We understand, and we can help.
Our desire is that every student have the opportunity to attend Fellowship Christian School without financial hindrance. While we strive to keep our tuition reasonable, we know that not everyone can afford a private school education. We have limited, need-based financial aid to help fill in the gaps.

Financial Aid Applications
FCS awards need-based financial aid from current operating funds.
Application for financial aid can be accessed through our website.
Tuition payments are non-refundable and cannot be classified as a gift. Once a tuition contract is signed electronically during online enrollment, parents are obligated to pay tuition for the entire year. This policy ensures that the school can plan and provide the necessary resources to carry out its mission to inspire academic curiosity, impeccable character and Christian leadership grounded in biblical truth. Additionally, overnight field trips for grades 5, 6, 7, 8, 12 and participation fees in voluntary programs such as athletics, fine arts, and, student organizations are not included in tuition. Overnight field trips range in price from $300 - $1,400. Participation fees range in price from $85 -$500. There may be other additional fees not listed above depending on the student's activities.
FACTS is used for processing tuition and fees. There is an annual processing fee per agreement. Parents paying tuition in full by June 1st are eligible to receive a $200 (per student) discount. Parents may also choose to pay tuition over a 12-month period beginning in June. Tuition payments may be made on either the 5th or 20th of each month.
Tuition is considered late if you miss your scheduled withdrawal. Bank and late fees will be assessed according to bank and FACTS policies. If the account becomes delinquent, student records will be held and the child may be withheld from class until payment arrangements are made. Parents whose tuition accounts are delinquent will not be able to re-enroll their child without satisfying their previous debts. Payments must then be kept current in order for their child to remain on a class roster.
Tuition covers operating expenses and facilitates 100% of the school’s budget. Our Annual Fund provides for additional enhancements and special projects not funded through tuition. Each Fellowship family is strongly encouraged to participate in this yearly fund. Our Board of Directors, administration, faculty and staff lead our culture of giving and participate annually at 100%. Through the generosity of our families, Fellowship continues to provide a cutting edge experience that is academically and spiritually challenging. The Annual Fund is a yearly opportunity apart from any capital campaign and other special fundraising projects.
It would be wonderful if we could provide financial aid for everyone who desires it; however, our resources are limited. Therefore, in accordance with school policies, application for financial aid must be submitted each year. Before making application we encourage all of our families to reconsider their financial commitments and seek alternative sources of tuition funding.
- Aid to an enrolled returning student is given priority over a new student.
- Aid is based upon available funding and family need on a case-by-case basis.
