Variable Tuition Program

Dear PCS Family,

As we look to the 2019-2020 academic year, our school remains committed to providing our families with a safe, caring, and academically excellent Christian education where your child can grow in his or her faith, virtue, and knowledge. We also understand that the cost of a top-ranked private school education may still pose a financial barrier to some of our families, and we are committed to making the Plumstead Christian School experience as affordable as possible. Our Variable Tuition Program helps us to accomplish this.

If you choose to apply to our Variable Tuition Program, the school will match your unique financial profile to a Variable Tuition Rate. For approximately forty percent of our families this will translate to a reduced tuition cost somewhere between 50-100% of the maximum tuition level.

Last year, we received 98 Variable Tuition applications representing a total of 178 students. Families with two or more children who qualified for a reduced tuition had an average adjusted gross income of $110,410. The average tuition reduction per family was $4,883.  Families with one child at the school who qualified for a reduced tuition had an average adjusted gross income of $61,280 and an average family award of $2,688.

Variable Tuition Program grants to qualifying families is not the whole story.  In 2017-2018, the average family benefited from the fact that our top tuition rate averaged $2,600 less than the actual cost to educate each student at PCS. The remaining funds to educate your child come from other revenue streams and from generous donors to our growing tuition assistance endowment, our committed businesses who engage in Pennsylvania’s Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, and every gift to our annual fund, The Fund for Plumstead.

I want to thank you again for your partnership with us as we strive to provide a caring environment where students are taught to think biblically, serve effectively, and lead Christ-centered lives. We applaud you for the investment you make in your children, and we look forward to serving your family again during the 2019-2020 academic year.

In His Service,
Mark W. Miquel, Sr.
Director of Finance‚Äč
