Family Grants

The Master's School commends parents' willingness to pursue a Christian education for their children and automatically awards family grants. Families with more than one child enrolled in grades 1-12 at The Master's School will receive an annual family grant of $1,000 for each of those children other than the first. Early Kindergarten and Kindergarten students with older siblings attending The Master's School will receive a family grant of $500.

Financial Aid

We are dedicated to providing a Master's School Christian education to families who qualify for need-based financial aid. Well over half of our student body receives financial aid. This makes a Master's School education affordable to many qualified students who would not otherwise be able to join our school community. 

If you would like your child(ren) to receive a quality Christian education, contact us to inquire today.

Financial Aid FAQ’s

List of 4 items.

  • How Does Financial Aid Work?

    Any domestic family (current or new) of an early kindergarten through grade 12 student may apply for financial aid if they are concerned about affording the full tuition rate at The Master's School and they think they may qualify for assistance. Many factors are considered when determining the amount of assistance for each family, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family. 

    An application for financial aid does not affect the admission decision. Once a family has submitted an application for admission to the school, they may then apply for financial aid. Re-enrolling families need to apply for financial aid for each school year.

    It is not possible to determine the amount the financial aid that will be granted without the completion of a financial aid application. Applications and required documents are submitted directly to Blackbaud Financial Aid Management (BFAM), a third-party agency. BFAM analyzes each family's full financial picture with great precision and provides a recommendation to the school’s Financial Aid Committee. The school will notify each family of the amount of financial aid for which they qualified.

    Unfortunately, the school is not able to provide financial aid to every student. We work within the available resources to make the school accessible to as many students and families as possible.
  • Do I need to apply to The Master's School to receive confirmation of my financial aid?

    Yes, we ask that you submit an applicaiton for admission to the school prior to applying for financial aid.
  • Upon completion of my financial aid application, when will I be notified of the determination?

    Once your application and all required documents have been submitted to BFAM, the school will be notified of their recommendation within 2 weeks. Our Financial Aid Committee will then meet to review BFAM's recomendation and will contact you soon after. You can and should expect that your application and information contained within will be kept confidential by the third party company who evaluates applications and by the Financial Aid Committee of the school.
  • I don't have this year's taxes completed yet. Can I begin the process before I have all my tax information together?

    Yes, you may use last year's tax information.

Capital Improvement Fee

The Master's School assesses a one-time Capital Improvement Fee in the amount of $300 to all new families. Families to whom this fee is applicable will receive an invoice upon enrollment.
