An investment worth making…

There is really no way around it. Private education at any level can cost a lot of money. At CCS, we are truly mindful of this fact. We work hard to operate as cost-effectively as possible while upholding standards of excellence that are essential to our mission. Our sincere desire is that every parent who is committed to providing the kind of educational expericence CCS offers will be able to do so at an affordable price. Personal sacrifices may still be necessary, but a Christian education at CCS is an investment worth making.

Tuition Assistance

While tuition at Cherokee Christian School is a great value for private education in our area, we understand that financial constraints make it impossible for some families to attend CCS without assistance. We have needs based scholarships that help minimize the financial barrier for enrollment at CCS for most families.

Are monthly tuition payment plans available to families?
Yes! All families may set up payment plans for a nominal fee. Monthly, quarterly, or semester based plans are available. Payment plans are available regardless of whether or not a family receives tuition assistance.
What are the deadlines to apply for tuition assistance?
There are specific deadlines. The tuition assistance website opens in January. Fully completed applications are due by April 20th.
Is tuition assistance available for all grades?
Yes, tuition assistance is available for all grades Pre-K through 12th.
Are there other tuition assistance opportunities such as academic merit or athletic scholarships?
No. CCS focuses tuition assistance efforts on the individual financial needs of its families.
Does tuition assistance need to be repaid?
No. All tuition assistance is in the form of a grant. It is NOT a loan that must be paid back.
Can families of new students apply for tuition assistance before submitting a new student application?

Yes… sort of. While families new to CCS may apply for tuition assistance ahead of acceptance, tuition assistance is neither considered nor awarded until a student has applied and been accepted. Our Admissions department will help guide you during this process.

Must returning families fill out the tuition assistance form every year?
Yes! All families that want tuition assistance consideration must complete the application process every year. The application process is shorter for returning families.
