Learning Assistance Program

Lighthouse Christian School has adopted an admissions policy that opens the school to families who are like-minded spiritually and who believe in our school’s mission by offering tuition assistance to families who otherwise could not afford full tuition. Our LAP assists students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade by helping those students for whom the cost would otherwise be prohibitive to receive a quality education.

Lighthouse Christian School strives to create a diverse student body of varying financial circumstances. This is made possible through a fund which receives monies from private donors as well as fund raising events.

LAP is awarded to families based on financial need. Eligibility and grant amounts are determined by our LAP Committee which will review financial information you give through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Program. Tuition grants are not designed to support lifestyle choices that result in heavy financial stress or indebtedness.

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for Lighthouse Christian School for the upcoming school year. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment beginning March 1st with a deadline of July 1st. Applicants can apply online by clicking the FACTS link below. Once an online application has been completed, the following information will need to be sent to FACTS to complete the application process:
  • Copies of your most recent Federal tax forms including all supporting tax schedules
  • Copies of your most recent W-2 forms for both you and your spouse

All supporting documentation can be uploaded in pdf format online.
