Tuition rates at GHC have already been reduced from the actual cost of education (the school budget divided by the number of students). This is made possible by the application of grants that are available to all families regardless of their financial situation. One grant comes from a portion of the investment earnings from the school’s endowment fund; the second from the annual fundraising efforts of the GRACE board, the fundraising committee of the school board. Currently, available grant assistance totals $1,000 per full time student.
Grand Haven Christian School offers a tuition assistance program to provide additional tuition adjustments for families who qualify.
The goal of this program is to provide support to moderate and low-income families in an objective, equitable, and consistent manner in the context of fiscal responsibility to the school budget as a whole. The program is overseen by the Finance Committee of the board which is responsible and accountable for all decisions regarding adjustments to required tuition amounts.
