Scholarships

We are committed to making classical, Christian education as accessible and as affordable as possible. TCS provides two types of scholarships for families, a Need-based Scholarship and a Ministerial Scholarship. 

Need-based Scholarship

TCS offers need-based scholarships each year covering 25% of tuition. Scholarship applications may be submitted at any time, but scholarship awards may only be applied to future semesters. Scholarship applications are considered in the order received.

Important Facts about the TCS Need-based Scholarship

  • The scholarship award per student is 25% of tuition. This scholarship applies to all students from your family.
  • The scholarship application could take up to six weeks to process so we advise completing the application and submitting the requested documentation as soon as possible.
  • Scholarships are awarded each year based on family need, as determined by a Confidential Financial Analysis which is conducted by Confidential Financial Services (CFS) of Colorado Springs, CO. You will be responsible for the $30 fee this company collects to cover the cost of processing the form.
  • Scholarship awards are made on an annual basis. You will need to re-apply for the scholarship each year so that your eligibility can be re-confirmed.
  • The deadline for having a scholarship application and all supporting materials fully processed by CFS (and ready for review by TCS) is April 1. Please note that you will need to submit your application well in advance of April 1 in order for everything to be 100% processed by CFS and ready for TCS review. If you are unable to meet the April 1 deadline, the deadline for Spring semester scholarships is Oct 1.
  • The TCS application fee of $150 is fully refundable if you are unable to enroll due to not receiving a scholarship.
  • The scholarship applies to tuition for all courses and electives, but the scholarship does not apply to fees, books, uniforms, or other costs.
