PCS Families

Tuition Assistance

Portland Christian School offers an aggressive Tuition Assistance program to any family who wishes to apply. The program is made possible through the generous donations of others who share the common goal of providing a Christian learning environment to as many students as possible.

Each year the PCS board will determine the funding of the tuition assistance program that is available based on donations received. Once the available financial aid funds are accepted a waiting list will be maintained for any new financial aid money that may become available.

 Tuition assistance awards are provided for families with a demonstrated financial need as determined by FACTS Grant and Aid, an independent third-party provider. FACTS assessment process is a confidential and objective process to determine financial need based on information provided directly by parents. All tuition assistance awards are based on financial need only and are not determined by academic or athletic achievement.

*** Note that tuition assistance is not available for Portland Christian Preschool.
