Welcome to Plumstead Christian School.

We are pleased to offer you a convenient, online method to apply for a Variable Tuition Determination through FACTS.

Variable Tuition Program

Dear PCS Family,

As we look to the 2023-2024 academic year, Plumstead Christian School remains committed to providing our families with a safe, caring, and academically excellent Christian schooling 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 make it possible.

Last year, PCS received 84 Variable Tuition applications that represented a total of 134 students. Of these, 59 or 70% of the Variable Tuition applicants qualified for a Variable Tuition award. Families with one child enrolled at the school and who qualified for a reduced tuition had an average adjusted gross income of $69,525 and the average family award was $3,582. Families with two or more children enrolled at the school and who qualified for a reduced tuition had an average adjusted gross income of $117,311. The average tuition reduction per family with two or more children enrolled at PCS was $6,236. 

However, Variable Tuition Determinations to qualifying families is not the whole story.  In 2021-2022, the average family benefited from the fact that our top tuition rate averaged $2,687 less than the actual cost to educate each student at PCS. The remaining funds to educate your child comes 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.

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

Finally, I want to thank you again for considering a Christ-centered schooling for your child(ren) and for expressing your interest in PCS 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 look forward to having the opportunity to serve both you and your family during the 2023-2024 academic year.

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