We believe that a Christ-centered education is vitally important for Christian families. Therefore, LCA operates a need-based assistance program for enrolled families. Tuition assistance decisions are based on the availability of school resources and the amount of verified tuition assistance needs each school year.
LCA utilizes FACTS Grant & Aid (FACTS) to streamline the financial aid assessment process. Families submit an application and supporting documents such as tax returns and pay statements through a secure portal, and FACTS makes recommendations to LCA based on data collected. In addition to FACT's recommendations, each family’s financial and personal situation is considered. Please know that we have the utmost respect for your privacy, and all information is held in strict confidence.
Tuition assistance may be awarded annually to assist with the payment of tuition. Tuition assistance does not cover application/enrollment fees, student fees or other optional or required fees. Tuition Assistance is generally provided in a prorated system through the school year but will not be applied retroactively.
Once awarded, the student(s) and parent(s) must remain in good financial, conduct and academic standing with the school as a condition of assistance being continued.
Application can be made online between February 1 and February 28 for reenrolling families by clicking here or on the FACTS logo below. FACTS charges a non-refundable $35 Grant & Aid application fee per family. Families applying outside of this period should call the office at 937-352-1640 before applying, in order to determine the availability of tuition assistance funds.
Tuition Assistance Q & A
Am I eligible to apply?
Any family in good standing with the school may apply for the tuition assistance program. Current families must re-apply each year for tuition assistance consideration.
When should I apply?
Returning families should complete an application for the upcoming year between February 1 and February 28 for the best possibility of receiving assistance. Applications received after that date will be considered as funds are available.
First-year families should complete an application within 30 calendar days of acceptance of their student(s) for the best possibility of receiving assistance. Applications are not considered complete until all supporting documentation has been provided.
How will I know if I qualify?
FACTS Grant & Aid calculates a number of factors in determining family need including income, expenses, assets, family size, and the number of children attending Legacy Christian Academy. The tuition assistance program is for Kindergarten through 12th grade only. The LCA Preschool, Homeschool and Distance Learning/Alternative Education programs do not qualify for tuition assistance. Families desiring further clarification concerning qualifying for tuition assistance are encouraged to call the office at 937-352-1640.
What records will I need to apply?
U.S. income tax returns (IRS form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ and any supporting IRS schedules)
