Tuition & Fees

Financial Aid

The National Association of Independent Schools’ Guiding Principles for Families acknowledges responsibility for funding an independent school education rests primarily with the family.
However, we also recognize that some families can afford to pay some, but not all, of the tuition.

As an independent school, we believe educating our students means understanding that resources come from time, talents, and treasures. Therefore, our responsibility is to create an environment where our students acknowledge various economic backgrounds.

The Georgia High School Association (GHSA) strictly prohibits scholarships to enrolling students based on merit.

  • Eligibility

    • Financial aid is awarded based on demonstrated need of the parent's financial situation. Student performance in academics, fine arts, or athletics does not influence financial aid eligibility.
    • All families must pay a portion of the costs for their child to attend KRCS. The financial aid process starts with School and Student Services' recommendation after completing the Parents' Financial Statement.
    • Tuition refund insurance is required for all families that receive financial aid, even if they are paying the portion due in full.
    • Demonstrated need is defined as the difference between the tuition cost and the recommended amount which a family can contribute towards the student's education after considering factors such as net income, assets, number of dependents, number of children attending tuition-charging institutions, and any unusual expenses such as medical costs or educational debt.
    • To be eligible for consideration for financial aid, you must complete your Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) by Monday, February 12, 2024, and submit the Required Financial Documents (1040, W-2, KRCS Letter Request for Financial Aid) by Friday, February 23, 2024. If you have not yet completed the 2023 - Form 1040, proceed with uploading the 2022 - Form 1040 and replace it with the 2023 version as soon as it is completed. The Financial Aid Committee will communicate financial aid decisions in mid-April.
    • KRCS receives a report of an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses based on documentation submitted along with your PFS. This estimate is a starting point to help us make fair and objective financial aid decisions. Please review the Financial Aid Application Action Steps below to begin your financial aid application for the upcoming school year.
  • Financial Aid Notes

    • Financial aid is awarded on a one-year basis to parents. Therefore, you must apply for financial aid each year to be considered.
    • To be considered for financial aid, the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS), 1040, and W-2s are required of both biological parents, even in cases of divorce, separation, or estrangement.
    • Candidates who miss deadlines or fail to submit all documentation will risk not being considered for financial assistance. Financial aid is considered in this priority: parent of a current student receiving financial aid, parent of a current student newly applying for financial aid, and recently enrolled students. Therefore, missing a deadline will put your priority consideration at risk.
    • The Financial Aid Committee maintains strict confidentiality over financial aid files. Therefore, faculty and students are not informed of financial aid decisions. Families must similarly respect the process and not communicate the amount or designation of a financial aid award. Failure to do so will put the continuation of the award at risk.
    • Current KRCS families applying for financial aid must have completed re-enrollment documentation and submitted a deposit for the upcoming year to be considered for financial assistance.
    • Tuition refund insurance is required for all families that receive financial aid, even if they are paying the portion due in full.
    • King's Ridge Christian School does not discriminate in awarding financial aid based on an applicant's race, color, creed, sex, or national origin.
