Financial Aid

 Dear Parents: 

SCS utilizes FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to conduct family financial need analysis on an annual basis. Santiam Christian has established the scholarship fund for those families who desire to be at SCS, but may require financial assistance. Financial assistance may take the form of tuition scholarship, sport/activity fees scholarship, and/or SCS free & reduced lunch. All award decisions are made by SCS and not FACTS. 

The financial aid application is submitted through FACTS Grant & Aid for a processing fee of $35, paid directly to FACTS. Once the application has been reviewed and verified by FACTS, it is presented to Santiam Christian Schools. Incomplete applications, those which haven’t been verified, are not presented to SCS. 

Applicants can apply online beginning March 1, 2019, at You will need your 2018 completed tax information to complete your application. Applications may take 2-4 weeks for FACTS to process, once all required documents have been submitted. An incomplete application cannot be reviewed until all information has been submitted. 

Families applying for any financial aid program will need to have a verified FACTS application by April 30, to be considered for the bulk of financial aid. Priority will be given to those verified applications, with aid notifications being sent out beginning in late May. 

Applications will be accepted through August 1, 2019, and financial aid will close on September 15th of each year and depend on the remaining funds available. 

Completed applications submitted prior to April 30th, 2019, will receive aid notification in late May. Incomplete applications will NOT be presented to SCS until completed. 

If there is a reason you cannot complete the application process by April 30, 2019, please email me with an explanation and anticipated completion date. 

Please note sport/activity fees scholarship and SCS free & reduced lunch require additional forms to be completed and returned to me. 

Families should be prepared to pay all educational costs if their application is not completed by the timeframes described in this letter. 

Preschool and 1/2 time Kindergarten are not eligible for tuition scholarships.
