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 tuition scholarships. Families interested in applying for tuition assistance must complete and submit the appropriate forms annually to the Business Office by the specified deadlines.

Note: Scholarship applications for the 2024-2025 school year are due in January for current families and February for new families (see below for deadlines). 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.

All 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 upload copies of your completed IRS tax forms to complete your FACTS application.

NEW FAMILY REFERRAL INCENTIVE

DCS will award a $500 tuition credit in December along with a $500 match in May by the DCS Foundation ($1,000 total) to any current DCS family who refers a new family that enrolls one or more children in grades K-12. The referring family must complete and submit a New Family Referral form to the Business Office. When the new family officially enrolls at the beginning of the following semester/term, the $1,000 credit will be applied to the referring family’s account.
