Tuition & Financial Aid Assistance Policy

Tuition & Financial Aid Assistance Policy

While the availability of school resources, the number of qualified applicants, and overall budgetary constraints influence financial assistance decisions, Erie First Christian Academy is committed to making scholarships available to as many eligible applicants as possible.

In an effort to make the process fair to all, EFCA considers the following when making award decisions:

  1. The primary responsibility for financing a student’s education rests with the family.
  2. Both parents are expected to contribute to tuition. If a parent chooses not to work, EFCA imputes an annual income for a non-working parent.
  3. In the case of divorce or separation, EFCA requires both parents to file an application for financial assistance. EFCA is not bound by any divorce agreement specifying a parent’s responsibility for educational expenses.
  4. EFCA believes a family should invest in their child’s education before elective expenses, for example, secondary home ownership, club memberships, and expensive car leases/purchases.
