Affording Private School Tuition

We understand that traditional private school tuition systems are often cost prohibitive. Our Tuition Assistance model aims to make private school tuition more cost effective for all.

Due to the support of our donors, fundraising activities, and partner churches/organizations, we are able to offer an affordable quality Christian education.

Tuition Assistance is a need-based program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. This program allows families to apply for reduced tuition that is right for their families’ financial situation. Thus, this makes a Torrington Christian education affordable to many qualified students who could not otherwise join our school community.

Any full-time family (current or new) of a Prek4 (5 day program only) through twelfth-grade student may apply for Tuition Assistance if they are concerned about affording the full tuition rate at Torrington Christian, and they think they may qualify for the program. Many factors are considered when determining the tuition amount a family is able to pay, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family. An application for Tuition Assistance does not affect TCA’s Re-enrollment Program or new student admission process. Regardless of financial need, parents should complete the Re-enrollment or admission process as early as possible. It is not possible for a family or the school to estimate the tuition level for which a family qualifies without the completion of a Tuition Assistance application. Applications are evaluated by school leadership on a case-by-case basis. Once a decision has been made, TCA’s Admissions Office will notify families of the Tuition Assistance level for which they qualify.

No, you may apply for Tuition Assistance and receive an answer on what you qualify for before choosing to officially put in an admissions application. You must complete the Inquiry Form and email the information requested on the Tuition Assistance Application pdf to us at info@tcact.org. Once we receive those items, we should have an answer for you within 24-48 hours.

Yes, but please note that discounts cannot be combined with tuition assistance or other discounts. You must either choose tuition assistance (if qualified) or one of the discounts below:

  1. Full Payment (Due September 1st): 15% off total tuition costs
  2. Sibling Discount: Older child is considered the first child with no discount; 20% off 2nd student; 30% off 3rd student; and 40% off 4th+ student.
  3. Alumni Discount: 20% off total tuition costs
  4. Pastoral Discount: 20% off total tuition costs
  5. We may consider the trade of work skills/volunteer hours of parents/guardians towards tuition, and will discuss options on a case-by-case basis.
