APPLYING FOR FINANCIAL AID
Fremont Christian School (FCS) strives to assist all eligible students in securing the finances necessary to attend the school. We offer confidential, need-based assistance contingent upon the funds available at the time of disbursement. Financial aid awards do not require re-payment. Approximately 8% of our current students receive some form of financial assistance. Although the admission and financial aid processes are separate, they do occur simultaneously. Requests for financial aid are usually made at the time of the initial admission inquiry.
You must be a returning student or a current admission applicant to be considered for financial aid.
In order to continue to receive aid in successive years, students awarded financial aid must meet the academic and disciplinary good standing expected of all students at Fremont Christian School. Families must re-apply each year for financial aid, and awards may vary depending on changes in a family's finances as determined by the current application for aid. In separated or divorced families, please provide all legal documentation that clearly states each parent’s financial responsibility for their child’s educational costs.
Returning families are encouraged to apply for financial aid between February 1 and March 9. New families will have until June 1 to apply. Only complete applications will be considered. A complete application includes submitting all required tax information for the current and previous years.
For more information about financial aid, please contact the Admissions Office at (510) 744-2241 or the Director of Admissions, Tom Bean at email@example.com
