Frequently Asked Questions

How will I receive my grant notification?

Grant notifications will be mailed approximately three weeks after review. Notifications will be made in writing and sent through the US Postal Service. The grant must be accepted by you in writing and returned to the Business Office by the date specified in the notification letter. If we do not receive your signed acceptance within that time, the grant will be forfeited.
 

How does the process work?

Tuition grant applications are made online through FACTS, which reviews and verifies the financial and tax data provided by each applicant and makes recommendations to Providence about the family’s needs.

Depending on the time of year and the complexity of your tax filing, it may take one to three weeks for FACTS to verify your application before it can be submitted to Providence's Tuition Grant Committee for consideration. Your application cannot be reviewed until FACTS has verified it.

We encourage you to submit your information as early as possible. Do not wait until the deadline to submit your information to FACTS. FACTS verified applications are considered for review by Providence’s Tuition Grant Committee on a first come, first served, basis.

When can I apply for a tuition grant?

The tuition grant application process opens on November 1st, 2018.  Keep in mind that FACTS will require your 2018 W2s. You will, however, be able to begin the application process and download your 2017 tax return beginning on November 1st, 2018.
 

How do I apply for a tuition grant?

You may apply online. FACTS charges a processing fee, which must be paid by credit card online when your application is submitted. The application process is complete when you have provided all tax documents requested by FACTS and FACTS has verified your application.
 

When will my tuition grant application be processed?

Once your tuition grant application is complete and verified by FACTS, and once the additional steps listed above have been taken, your grant application will be placed in review.

Please remember, funds are limited, and applications will be considered only if there are tuition grant funds remaining.

April 1, 2019 is the application deadline if funds are still available. You must have been accepted and in a verified state with FACTS by this date to be considered. This process can takes weeks, so it's important to get the process moving well ahead of this date.

How much will my grant be?

Providence is an independent private school and does not receive government funding for grants, nor funding from any church-based organizations. Tuition grants are limited and available to those Providence families with a demonstrated need for financial aid. Not all families who apply will receive a grant.
 
Typical grants for qualifying families are:
Kindergarten-4th grade: 10%
5th grade-7th grade:  20%
8th grade-12th grade: 30%

    
Providence Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admissions policies, educational policies, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.
