Affording POPCS

A private Christian education is a significant financial sacrifice. The investment in your child will have immeasurable returns, as it will provide an eternal impact.

Prince of Peace Christian School seeks to enroll the most qualified students from mission appropriate families. We are committed to ensuring that a POPCS education is affordable to those students through our Tuition Assistance program.
POPCS offers the following to assist families in affording a POPCS education:

• Need based tuition assistance is granted based upon demonstrated need and availability of funds.
• Scholarships in recognition of academic achievement, commitment to extracurricular activities, leadership, and merit.
 
Tuition Assistance
 
Tuition assistance is based upon the family’s financial need, as determined by FACTS and reviewed by a tuition assistance committee. Deliberations and decisions made by the committee are strictly confidential. The maximum amount of assistance awarded from tuition assistance is not to exceed ½ of total tuition.

Tuition assistance is awarded annually, and all awards are made on a year-by-year basis.There is no guarantee that a student who receives assistance one year will be offered tuition assistance at the same or comparable levels in subsequent years. Tuition assistance must be applied for each year.

Admission and tuition assistance decisions are made independently. New applicants must have completed the admissions process in order to be considered for tuition assistance. Current students applying for assistance must be in good standing to be considered for awards.

How to Apply for Tuition Assistance

1. Complete the FACTS online application for Grant and Aid. The application is available at www.factsmgt.com/aid. New FACTS Grant and Aid users must create a new account. Current families who have applied for tuition assistance in previous years should log in using established FACTS Grant and Aid account information.

2. Upload supporting documents into the online application.

POPCS will communicate decisions on tuition assistance via email to applicants. Tuition assistance decisions are based upon the family’s financial need, as determined by FACTS application data, and review by the tuition assistance committee.
 

Scholarships

POPCS seeks to attract a diverse and talented student body. To ensure a fair process, the children of POPCS administration, faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees are not eligible for scholarships, with the exception of the Middle School Academic Merit awards.
