The Ministry of Financial Aid

At Grace Lutheran School, financial aid is a ministry, the ministry of opportunity. Our financial aid decisions are guided by the very same Biblical principles integrated into our entire educational program. 

Opportunity. At its essence, needs-based financial aid represents opportunity for children of all races, sexes, income levels and church affiliation. Financial aid is a profound opportunity.

The opportunity for a better education.
The opportunity to give oneself to a lifetime of service.

Financial aid at Grace Lutheran School is an opportunity for children and families who are like-minded and willing to rise above their circumstance to fully achieve God’s calling in their lives.  As a steward of this precious and limited opportunity, St. Paul writes:

But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining
toward what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win
the prize for which God has called me heavenward in
Christ Jesus. (Phil. 3:13, 14)

Sacrifice. “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them!” (Mark 10:14). At Grace Lutheran School, our goal is to give opportunity to as many children as possible. Therefore, it is expected that financial aid recipients forego certain luxuries to pay all that is possible towards their child’s education.

“Present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice.” (Romans 12:1).  Ultimately everyone at Grace Lutheran School is sacrificing to provide this precious lifetime opportunity to our children, including teachers, staff, and administrators. Retirees, working families and others support our schools through private donations and congregational subsidy. In decades past, sacrificing donors made possible the school facility we now enjoy.

While the FACTs process for financial aid (link below) is a tool to determine the amount you can pay, ultimately we expect you to sacrifice to pay the highest possible tuition amount, even if the FACTs assessment shows a lower amount. That way, all children and families in our communities who are willing to sacrifice can have the opportunity for a better life for their children.

For the sake of many children and families who desire the life-time opportunity of Grace Lutheran School, please honor the integrity of the financial aid process as follows:

(1) In fairness to other Grace Lutheran School families, please report all sources of income.

(2) Please be honorable in making predictions about future income. For the integrity of process, we do check predictions against actuals in future year’s financial aid applications.

(3) If you know of reasons or circumstances where your tax information may not accurately reflect the reality of your financial circumstance, please reflect that in your own projection of what tuition you can pay. If the circumstances are complex, contact the financial aid office.


(4) If your financial situation significantly changes during the course of the school year, in fairness to other children receiving the ministry of financial aid, please come in to the business office to discuss the changed financial circumstance. A revised financial aid application may be required.

(5) In fairness to all receiving financial aid we would expect that all students maintain a satisfactory grade or 2.5 average and follow the Attendance Policies in the Family Handbook. 

(6) Financial aid awards are expected to remain confidential and should not be discussed or disclosed to others.

Thank you for taking the time to understand Grace Lutheran School’s ministry of opportunity through financial aid.
