Monte Vista Christian School is committed to enrolling a talented and diverse student body and seeks students who aspire to academic excellence, spiritual growth, and active participation in school activities. We are determined to provide students with access to all the opportunities and programs that Monte Vista Christian School has to offer - as requests for aid and financial resources allow.
Students who receive financial aid are required to re-apply each year for continued support. Re-applications are re-evaluated based on a family's continued need.
MVCS does not award full tuition financial aid to any student. We believe that ultimately each family is responsible for the cost of the education of their child. Therefore, each family is asked to contribute the majority of the cost of their child's education. The amount of financial aid varies according to the financial resources of each family, but is limited to a maximum of 30%.
Financial aid cover tuition only, for full-time students. Financial aid does not cover the application fee, enrollment fee, extra-curricular activities, transportation, room and board, or any class/iPad/athletic related fees.
STEPS TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID:
