All three applications below (CCA, CFS, & CTF) must be completed in order to be considered for Tuition Assistance.
CCA Tuition Assistance Application
Confidential Financial Services
Children's Tuition Fund Scholarship Application
Applications must be filed yearly with Confidential Financial Services (CFS) and Exception Requests must be put in writing on a yearly basis. No awards will be granted without a current CFS application and FACT report. The following are the steps in the application process:
STEP 1: FILL OUT AN APPLICATION
Since all types of assistance require an evaluation of a family’s need, a CCA Tuition Assistance Application must be completed, an online finacial evaluation must be completed at www.cfslogin.com, and the state’s Invest In Kids scholarship must be filled out at the ChildrensTuitionFund.org website. (Click “Apply”)
- TO CCA (Calvary Christian Academy):
- Tuition Assistance Application Form.
- An Exception Letter (optional) – if the family believes they have unusual/extenuating circumstances that they wish for the Tuition Assistance Committee to consider.
- To CTF (Children’s Tuition Fund):
- Fill out basic personal information.
- Designate your child’s school of choice
- Parental signature needed at the end
- TO CFS (Confidential Financial Services):
- A copy of your most recent Federal and State tax return.
- A copy of your four most recent pay stubs.
- Any additional documentation required by CFS during the verification process.
- **Financial papers should only be provided to CFS. Do NOT submit tax returns or pay stubs to CCA.
STEP 2: REVIEW BY THE CHILDREN’S TUITION FUND AND THE CCA’s TUITION ASSISTANCE COMMITTEE
The Children’s Tuition Fund will review the application and will award scholarships based on income eligibility and the amount of money available. CCA’s Tuition Assistance Committee will then review the processed application in light of the level of aid for which the family qualifies, the amounts available for distribution, and the number of applicants. The personal information that families are required to provide is kept confidential within this committee. Note: No application will be considered until CFS determines that the application is fully verified and CTF has exhausted its process.
STEP 3: COMMUNICATION
The Children’s Tuition Fund will inform each family of its status before the conclusion of this currrent school year. CCA’s Financial Administrator will inform each family of the committee’s CCA scholarship status decision on Registration Day in June.
In order to receive assistance from the CCA Tuition Assistance Program, a student must be enrolled full-time at Calvary Christian Academy.
REVIEW AND CANCELLATION OF AWARDS
The school reserves the right to review and cancel the financial aid awards at any time because of changes in financial resources, residency, marital status, because of failure to pay any outstanding tuition amounts in a timely fashion, or because of the student’s failure to remain in good standing at the school (academic, discipline, or attendance standards).
TIMELY PAYMENT OF TUITION ACCOUNTS
It is expected that the portion of the family’s tuition bill that is not covered by tuition assistance will be paid in a timely manner. A family not keeping the tuition payment schedule as agreed upon at the time they were notified of their assistance package might jeopardize their tuition assistance award. This is subject to review at the end of each semester.
ACCEPTABLE ACADEMIC PROGRESS
A student is expected to maintain a “C” cumulative average to continue to qualify for tuition assistance. Any student not maintaining satisfactory grades may become ineligible for continued assistance or may be placed on probation for a period of time (not to exceed one quarter) to enable him to bring his grades up to the expected level. Note: If a student is incapable of maintaining a “C” average due to diagnosed learning disabilities, a family may submit an Exception Letter to the committee to be reviewed as outlined above.
A student is expected to maintain appropriate conduct at Calvary Christian Academy. Any student suspended for more than one day during a semester may become ineligible for continued assistance at the end of that semester or may be placed on probation for an unlimited time period in which any successive suspension would result in immediate loss of continued assistance.
A student is expected to attend classes in order to make the most of the tuition assistance that is given to them. Any student missing more than 9 days in a semester or who is tardy more than 9 times in a semester may become ineligible for continued tuition assistance or may be placed on probation for the following semester in which any absence over 9 or tardy over 9 would result in immediate loss of continued assistance. Note Should a prolonged,diagnosed illness be an issue, parents should submit proper documentation from the attending physician.
