Accessible Tuition Program

Delmarva Christian School’s Accessible Tuition Program provides the opportunity for more families to access an excellent Christ-centered education for their students by calculating a tuition rate that matches each family’s unique financial situation. The Accessible Tuition Program is a need-based financial aid structure which is similar to those used by other private schools, colleges, and universities. Factors like income, family circumstances, and the cost of living are first evaluated by a third party assessment service and then by the DCS Accessible Tuition Review Committee.

The Accessible Tuition Program provides sustainability for DCS by enabling the school to increase overall tuition revenue and allowing greater focus on the DCS mission. Furthermore, it provides for an affordable, excellent Christian education to a greater number of families.

Any family who has a full-time student enrolled in K-12 at DCS and feels that they are not able to pay full tuition should apply. New students must first make application to Delmarva Christian High School (DCHS) or Delmarva Christian Schools Milton Campus (DCMC) and be accepted before filing for the Accessible Tuition Program.

The heart of the Accessible Tuition Program at DCS is committed to maintaining and growing excellent Christian education programs and making those programs accessible to as many families as possible.

“At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need.”  2 Corinthians 8:14a

Scholarship Opportunities

Robert D. Burris Scholar Program

Provided by the Robert D. Burris Family to DCHS, the Robert D. Burris Scholar Program is for full-time students in grades nine through twelve to encourage students to discover God’s will for their lives and develop the skills to become leaders in a generation that will transform the world for Christ. Every student who has attended DCHS has benefited from the Christ-like example and generosity of Mr. Burris. This scholarship carries with it both blessing and responsibility: the blessing of receiving a needs-based scholarship and the responsibility to maintain a standard which acknowledges an understanding of the sacrifices made to support a school focused on developing a Christian worldview in its students.
