Financial Aid

Grand Rapids Christian Schools provides financial aid to families who meet income eligibility requirements. All financial aid recipients must apply by completing a Smart Aid Application. Smart Aid provides a fair and confidential assessment of a family’s financial need. Based on that assessment, the amount of funds available and additional internal criteria, Grand Rapids Christian Schools determines the amount of financial aid for which a family is eligible, notifies the family of the amount of the financial aid package, and awards the amount following a family’s acceptance of the financial aid award. Please note that academic and athletic scholarships are not available from nor provided by Grand Rapids Christian Schools.
