Tuition Assistance

The purpose of Whitefish Christian Academy Tuition Assistance Committee is to provide tuition scholarship funds for families who are unable to afford all of the current tuition costs. Since WCA is a tuition and fee supported school and does not receive any federal, state or local tax assistance, tuition income is essential to the continuation of the educational program. Our Tuition Assistance Committee has the responsibility of raising funds to cover the portion of a family’s total tuition cost that the family can not pay. This is essential to fund Whitefish Christian Academy’s annual operating budget.  In order for the tuition application to be processed, WCA requires a copy of your most recent 1040 tax return to accompany this tuition application.

The total number of students  receiving tuition scholarships cannot exceed 25% of the enrollment in those grades. Tuition assistance will not pay for registration, books or other school fees.

Application

Annual application is required for each family. All information that you provide on your tuition scholarship application is strictly confidential. Applications are considered in the order in which they are received (they are date and time stamped when they arrive at the WCA office) with the following priorities given: 

 • Returning students who are currently receiving tuition assistance

 • Siblings of returning students who are currently receiving tuition assistance

 • Returning students who are new applicants for a tuition assistance

 • New student

Application for tuition assistance requires completion of the tuition assistance application form (the link to download the PDF document is located at the bottom of this page).

Payment

Payment of part of the tuition, and all of the applicable registration and other fees, is required of each family receiving tuition assistance. The amount of tuition assistance awarded to a family is based upon the family’s demonstrated financial need; taking into consideration the family’s combined gross annual income, number of children attending WCA, and other relevant factors such as medical and college commitments.
