Affording a Cherry Hills Christian School Education

You may be wondering if you make enough to afford tuition — or if you make too much to qualify for tuition assistance. In reality, many families at a variety of income levels qualify for tuition assistance, and we’ve simplified the process with our Tuition Assistance Guidelines. 

CHC uses the FACTS Grant and Aid application to determine eligibility, but the school also partners with Alliance for Choice in Education, a partner organization that offers privately funded scholarships to low-income families attending private school. ACE awards a limited number of scholarships each school year. ACE scholarships are awarded in addition to any assistance awarded by CHC. We encourage any admitted families who have been fully enrolled in CHC and meet ACE’s income criteria to apply.

Disclaimer: Applicants are NOT guaranteed a scholarship by completing ACE’s application. Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis by ACE at its sole and absolute discretion. Any funding for future school years will be determined by ACE at its sole and absolute discretion.

To learn more about ACE Scholarships, please visit ACE will open applications for the 2023-2024 school year on February 6, 2023, and applications will remain open until 11:59 p.m. (ET) on April 18, 2023.

Also, all families can take advantage of any of our three convenient payment options:

  • Pay full tuition by June 10
  • Pay half of tuition by June 10 and the other half by Nov. 10
  • Make monthly auto-debit payments
    Preschool: 9 payments in addition to the Tuition Deposit from Sept. 10 to May 10
