Tuition Assistance

Oakland Christian School offers need-based tuition assistance grants to new and returning families with students enrolling in Junior Kindergarten through 12th grade. 

Oakland Christian School uses the analysis of an outside, objective service called FACTS: Grant & Aid Assessment. This is an independent, third-party company that conducts financial analysis to provide OCS with a recommendation of your family's financial need. OCS receives a confidential report based on the information obtained in your application and supporting tax documents.

Tuition assistance awards are funded by Oakland Christian School and are awarded to families who apply for and qualify for need-based tuition assistance. Tuition grants will be awarded according to a family's qualifying need and are limited to funds available in Oakland Christian’s tuition assistance program. 

Families interested in tuition assistance may apply by submitting an online application through FACTS Grant & Aid. There is a $35 fee to apply. To be considered for a tuition assistance grant, a financial aid application must be submitted each year.
