“We are doing everything possible for you to be able to attend CVCA.”

A Valuable Investment

The investment in a CVCA education prepares students academically, spiritually, and socially for life beyond high school:

  • The Class of 2021 was offered over $12 million in college scholarships.
  • 100% of the Class of 2021 graduates were accepted to a four-year college or university.
  • Nearly 60% of the Class of a 2021 graduates are attending a US News and World Report “Best Colleges” school.
  • 99% of students who participate in CVCA’s Schools of Distinction enter college with a declared major.
  • More than 60% of the Class of 2019 graduated CVCA with multiple college credits through AP course offerings.



Tuition Assistance

To assist families who otherwise would be unable to afford full tuition payments, CVCA offers a variety of programs to help bridge the financial gap. Approximately 40% of CVCA students receive some form of tuition assistance which can cover up to 65% of tuition cost. For the 2020-2021 school year, approximately $1.3 million in tuition assistance and scholarships was awarded to students.

    Tuition Assistance FAQs

    When and how do I apply for tuition assistance?

    As soon as your student has re-registered or applied for the upcoming school year, and the registration or application fee is paid, you should apply for Tuition Assistance HERE>> through the FACTS website.

    How is my tuition assistance taken off my balance?

    Tuition Assistance is awarded before your first payment. The Finance Office informs FACTS Management of the amount of the decrease, and a new balance and monthly payment are generated. You will receive a letter stating your new balance and your new monthly payment.

    How much assistance will I receive if I apply?

    The amount of assistance depends primarily on financial need. Other factors such as student activities, academic progress, volunteer involvement, and the number of children attending Christian schools are also considered. The maximum award is up to 65% of total tuition.

    Do I have to apply for assistance every year?

    Yes! Circumstances may change during a school year, so we must obtain new information each year to make a decision.

    I am a pastor. Do I have to apply for tuition assistance?

    Yes. The same procedures apply to pastors. All tuition assistance is based on need.

    What other kinds of assistance are available?

    Additional financial assistance may come from your church or someone interested in Christian Education. We are not responsible to solicit these funds; you must inquire about such help.

    What is EdChoice?

    The Educational Choice Scholarship (EdChoice) Program provides students from designated public schools the opportunity to attend participating private schools. The program also provides low-income students scholarship opportunities. The scholarship must be used to attend private schools that meet requirements for program participation. The priority application period for the Traditional EdChoice Scholarship program begins March 2 and ends May 15, 2021. The priority application period for the EdChoice Expansion Scholarship program begins February 1 and ends April 30, 2021. The second application period begins July 1, 2021 and will remain open.

    The first step to apply for an EdChoice Scholarship is to enroll in a private school. Once enrollment is confirmed, students can download scholarship forms from the EdChoice Website. Those forms must be returned to the private school and submitted by the school staff into a secure online scholarship portal. Please note, EdChoice Scholarships are limited by state law.
