Tuition Assistance

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

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

Tuition assistance awards are funded by Oakland Christian School and are given to families who apply for and qualify for need-based tuition assistance. Tuition assistance will be awarded according to a family's qualifying need and is 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. A tuition assistance application must be submitted each year to be considered for tuition assistance.
