One of our main goals at GVCS is to keep tuition at an affordable rate for our families. Understanding that some families require financial assistance, we provide several programs available to help address those needs and assist families in making quality Christ-centered education a possibility for their children.
Links to these programs and applications can be found below. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us. We would love to speak with you and help you navigate through the application process.
Tuition Assistance 2019-2020 (KT-12)
We would like to share with you the financial aid process for the 2019-2020 school year at Grand View Christian School. Please read the below information to learn about the application process and timeline for our two scholarship programs.
Families who apply for financial aid must be as accurate as possible when they state the amount that they can contribute to their student’s annual educational costs. A partnership between the school and family works best when the family makes a sacrificial contribution toward the tuition costs each year. Our school receives a limited number of scholarship dollars from donations. It is our intention to help as many families as possible, but we cannot guarantee scholarship amounts to meet the needs of all families.
Summary of our two scholarship programs
1. STO (School Tuition Organization) Fund
This is a private-school scholarship program created by the State of Iowa for families who meet determined financial criteria (based on income and family size). Our school participates in the Heart of Iowa STO and receives funds from donors interested in supporting member faith-based private schools. The school is eligible to receive a set number of dollars based on the number of students enrolled in our school the prior year. The funds must then be raised each year by the STO from private donors. The scholarship committee then recommends to the Heart of Iowa STO the distribution of this fund to those families who meet the financial criteria on a first come, first served basis as long as funds are available. More than one student per family is eligible for assistance.
