Through generous donors, there is a certain amount of tuition assistance available to our school families. Forms are available by contacting Mr. Steve Baly, Business Services.
Tuition is normally paid in full at the beginning of the year or we also offer the option of paying on a quarterly basis. You may contact Mr. Steve Baly to discuss other options.
We love having our parents and grandparents involved at TCS! Statistics show that children do better if there is a hands-on approach to their education. That’s why we rely on our families to fulfill a minimum of 20 volunteer hours per child (maximum 60 hours) throughout the school year. In order to keep tuition costs down, we rely on our parent (or grandparent) volunteer base to do many of the jobs that other schools normally pay someone to do.
Due to increasing costs of utilities, supplies, etc. our tuition may increase on an annual basis. We keep these increases to a minimum as we are aware of the sacrifices parents make to provide their children with a quality Christian education.
All our teachers are believers, share their testimony and attend church on a weekly basis. These are the same guidelines we have for our families who enroll their children at TCS.
