Variable Tuition


King’s Way Christian Schools has a tradition of assisting families of students that hope to attend King’s Way. We have a desire to serve God by meeting needs within the community, equipping students to impact their culture.

Variable Tuition awards are granted based on a family’s demonstration of need. Each family is responsible for deposits and all other school related costs.

Variable Tuition Acceptance Guidelines

  • Financial Requirement: Parents/guardians who are recipients of financial aid are responsible for the remaining tuition balance plus any school-related fees such as athletic fees, childcare, school lunches, late fee’s, etc. All monthly tuition payments must be made on time. More than one late payment may result in the financial aid award being reduced or revoked.
  • Volunteer Requirement: Families who are recipients of financial aid are required to volunteer 20 hours of service to King’s Way per school year. The volunteer hour commitment will be outlined in the variable tuition agreement letter, along with volunteer activities and opportunities. In the event King’s Way does not provide ample opportunities for families to serve, the families will not be penalized for not meeting the 20-hour requirement.
