Apple Valley Christian School provides a needs-based Tuition Assistance program out of funds contributed to its Tuition Assistance fund, or out of funds budgeted for such purposes by the school board.

The purpose of Tuition Assistance is to provide financial aid for tuition expenses to families with demonstrated legitimate financial need. Each family receiving Tuition Assistance funds will be encouraged to gradually reduce their dependence on financial aid from the school.

To facilitate this, we have a very systematic Tuition Assistance program, administered by an outside service, to help make it possible for families who seek a Christian education for their children to receive one.

We have seen the Lord work financial miracles when it comes to affording an AVCS education. Families who never would have thought it possible to have their children attend a Christian school have found that, with a great deal of prayer, some sacrifice and applying for Tuition Assistance, an AVCS education is indeed possible.


AVCS uses the services of TADS to determine how much tuition assistance for which a family will qualify.

TADS is committed to providing professional assessment services that are, for administration, parents and committee: first accurate, then uncomplicated and quick – backed by customer service that is friendly, responsive, and accessible.

Applying for Tuition Assistance

The priority period for filing an AVCS Tuition Assistance application is from February 1st through May 1st for the following school year.  Applications received after May 1st will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
