Making Quality Private Education Affordable
Mt. Calvary Lutheran School offers financial assistance to qualifying families. We utilize Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), a third party service, to help determine financial needs of families. Using an outside agency such as FAST allows MCL to protect families and give them complete confidentiality and to provide third party objectivity.
You can apply online directly with FAST. There will be a $43 processing fee. FAST will ask for a copy of your most recent tax return. Approximately 6 weeks after the application is submitted, Mt. Calvary will receive a report and make a final determination of financial aid.
We are excited to be able to formally offer this service to our parents, and we believe that it will allow more of those who are seeking a Christian Education for their child to realize their desires.
General Guidelines to determine if you might be a candidate for assistance:
Income Under $40,000
If your family’s total income is under $40,000, you will probably qualify for some amount of financial aid. The maximum aid available is 50% of tuition for those who qualify.
Income Over $40,000
If your family’s income exceeds $40,000, then your tuition costs must be at least 10% of your income to qualify for financial aid (e.g. an income of $50,000 would require a tuition of $5,000 or more to qualify). This would only apply to families who have two or more children enrolled in K-8th grades.
