Monte Vista Christian School is committed to enrolling a talented and diverse student body and seeks students who aspire to academic excellence, spiritual growth, and active participation in school activities. We are determined to provide students with access to all the opportunities and programs that Monte Vista Christian School has to offer – as requests for aid and financial resources allow.
Financial aid/Scholarship decisions are made independently from admission decisions, and in no way affect a candidate's chances for admission.
Monte Vista respects the privacy rights of all individuals in the financial aid/scholarship process, including parents, students, and teachers. Information furnished as part of the financial aid/scholarship program is considered for use solely by Monte Vista Administration and the Financial Aid/Scholarship Committee and will not be disclosed to anyone, including the applicant and his or her family.
An Independent School Education is an Investment in your child's future:
An excellent education such as the one offered at Monte Vista Christian School does not come without cost. We recognize the cost of an independent education and encourage families who believe that additional assistance will be necessary, to apply for Financial Assistance. Such assistance is based on the assumptions that the primary obligation for financing a student's education lies with the family and that the family is willing to make significant adjustments in the use of its discretionary resources in order to meet educational costs.
It is important to note that despite Monte Vista's commitment to assist as many families who require financial assistance as possible, the demand each year exceeds the availability of resources for this purpose.
In allocating the school's limited financial assistance resources, the Financial Aid/Scholarship Committee considers a number of criteria.
These include the following:
- Strength of a candidate's academic credentials
- Quality of extracurricular involvement
- Potential to make a meaningful contribution to the school
- Amount of need
TYPES OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE:
Monthly Payment Plan - An eleven month payment plan through FACTS is available to those day student families who do not have the resources to make a single payment. Contact the business office for more information.
