Tuition Assistance

SCS Tuition Assistance Program

Southfield Christian School (SCS) offers a financial aid program designed to help families who need help in meeting tuition costs.  Tuition Assistance is available to students in grades K through 12 (not prekindergarten). The program is not intended to provide full scholarships. Awards are typically between 10% and 25% of tuition.  All applications are handled with strictest confidentiality. All awards are subject to the availability of funds.
Please note that tuition assistance funds are limited each year and application for aid is not a guarantee of award. 

How to Apply

    * If you have a split tuition agreement, each individual must complete separate FACTS applications. Tuition assistance (TA) awards are granted based on the percentage the TA applicant is paying for.
  • Step Three: FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment (FGAA) application

    Once the student application and Tuition Assistance Request Form have been received, applicants will receive an email with the link to the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment (FGAA) application. The data entered into this secure online program will be used to objectively analyze financial need and calculate a recommended “family contribution” toward tuition.

Tuition Assistance Timeline

Tuition Assistance Applications may be submitted beginning January 1 for the school year beginning in the Fall. Tuition Assistance applications will no longer be accepted after October 15, or once all funds have been awarded, whichever comes first. After completing the Tuition Assistance application steps, please allow 2-3 weeks for a decision from the Tuition Assistance Committee.  Applicants will be notified of award decisions by the SCS Director of Finance.

Student Benevolence Fund

Sometimes families encounter financial hardships during the school year after all tuition assistance has been granted. Such hardship usually involves severe or extenuating circumstances which cause a family to withdraw its student(s) from SCS because tuition payments are no longer feasible. The SCS Student Benevolence Fund allows donors to pay tuition for families who would otherwise withdraw from SCS. Contact the SCS Director of Finance for details.
