The vision of Denver Christian School is to provide accessible world-class, whole child Christian education to families in the Denver metro area. DCS is committed to financially partnering with qualifying families by providing need-based tuition assistance. Families interested in applying for tuition assistance must complete and submit the appropriate forms annually to the Business Office by the specified deadlines.
Note: We are now accepting scholarship applications for the 2021-2022 school year. Most tuition assistance and scholarship requests will require families to submit additional financial information through FACTS (see below).
FACTS GRANT AND AID ASSESSMENT
Denver Christian School uses FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to provide the school with parent financial information and analysis of each family’s need.
Most tuition assistance and scholarships require completion of an annual FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment form. This application must be completed online by logging into your RenWeb account, then clicking on FACTS. There is a fee for filing this form which is payable to FACTS. You will also be required to submit copies of your completed IRS tax forms to complete your FACTS application.
