Impact Christian Academy offers a needs-based tuition assistance program for qualifying families who desire a rigorous, college- preparatory curriculum taught with a biblical worldview.
- No student is given tuition assistance for academic or athletic ability. ICA does not provide merit scholarships of any kind.
- The average tuition assistance grant is not intended to cover the total tuition costs. The family is responsible for payment of the tuition and fees above the grant amount.
- Parents must re-apply each year for tuition assistance. Each year, the tuition assistance application process will include an evaluation of the level of academic effort, cooperation and commitment to Kingdom education on the part of both the parents and student.
- Students/Applicants must have either re-enrolled or have applied and been accepted in order to be considered for tuition assistance.
- Applications for admission and tuition assistance are submitted simultaneously even though admission decisions are made beginning in March, and tuition assistance decisions are not made until April or May.
- Availability of tuition assistance diminishes greatly for applications received after April.
The application and reward process for need-based tuition assistance is as follows:
- Parents apply for tuition assistance through a third party, FACTS https://www.factstuitionaid.com no later than April 1st of the spring prior to the academic school year assistance is needed. In order to process a tuition assistance application, FACTS requires that the family submit:
- Completed tax return for the prior year
- Copies of each parent’s W-2 forms
- After the FACTS application review, ICA is notified of the amount of qualified need toward the total tuition bill (of all students) for the family.
The qualifying amount is reviewed, and an assistance amount is determined based upon a combination of factors, including: the amount qualified for, the amount of assistance dollars available, the academic effort put forth by the student, the conduct and attitude of student, and the level of cooperation and commitment to Kingdom Education on the part of the parents. If a new student to ICA, the previous school’s recommendations are taken into consideration.
