Tuition and Affordability
Grand Rapids Christian Schools is committed to providing an excellent Christian education in an environment that deepens faith and a personal relationship with Christ to students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. We recognize that paying tuition is a significant investment for most families, and therefore do all we can to use those resources wisely and provide a variety of sources of financial aid.
The tuition chart below lists two types of tuition: Requested and Required. Grand Rapids Christian Schools asks families to pay the Requested amount, as this amount includes support for financial aid, educational support programs, endowment, capital needs, and technology. Parents who pay Requested tuition receive a receipt acknowledging a tax-deductible gift equal to the difference between Requested tuition and Required tuition for each student.
Preschool options and tuition rates are available here.
More information for International Students is available here.
FACTS Tuition Payment Plan
Parents may choose to pay their tuition in one lump-sum payment directly to GRCS or divide their tuition into either two payments (by semester) or 11 monthly payments paid to FACTS Management Company. All new families must electronically set up a FACTS Payment Plan Agreement. Grand Rapids Christian Schools will automatically update the payment plan for all returning families.

In addition to the financial aid made available to families through the Eagles Fund, Capital Projects Fund, GRCS Foundation and New2You grants, families who meet income eligibility requirements are able to receive additional financial aid and further reduce the cost of tuition. Annually, over 40% of families receive income-based financial aid either from a supporting church or directly from Grand Rapids Christian Schools. Get more information on Financial Aid here.
