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.
Under the schools’ current TAG system, 40% of existing DCS families already receive an adjusted tuition rate; however, the new Accessible Tuition Program will provide sustainability for DCS by enabling the school to increase overall tuition revenue and allowing greater focus on the DCS mission, as 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.
