Affording CCS

Thank you for considering Crossroads (CCS) for your child’s education. Investing in your child’s education by partnering with a Christian school requires careful financial planning. CCS is aware that the cost of Christian education can be a barrier for some families, so we have implemented a Tuition Assistance Program to help lessen the financial burden and remove that barrier.

Tuition Assistance

The need for tuition assistance is assessed by CCS using Facts Management (FACTS) and is awarded on an annual basis. Families must reapply for tuition assistance, using FACTS, each year.

The purpose of CCS’s Tuition Assistance program is to partner with families who have a passion for a biblically-based education but find that education cost-prohibitive. All tuition assistance awards are made on the basis of a family’s demonstrated financial need.

CCS uses an independent third party, Facts Management (FACTS), to assist in determining a family’s financial need. All families requesting tuition assistance must apply online and submit the required paperwork to FACTS at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3FP8W.

The CCS Tuition Assistance Committee reviews the information submitted and calculates the tuition assistance granted to each family based upon the guidelines established by FACTS and CCS’s Tuition Assistance program.

CCS agrees to certain principles:

  • Tuition Assistance awards will be made without regard to race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin.
  • Tuition Assistance will be determined based on the demonstrated financial need of the family.
  • The Tuition Assistance process is completely confidential.
  • The parents of each applicant must submit the financial information required by FACTS each year.

FACTS requires all tuition assistance applicants submit the following items to determine financial need:

  • Completion and submission of the Tuition Assistance Application and any supporting documentation required by FACTS.
  • Copy of your most recent 1040 Federal Tax Returns
  • If a parent or guardian is self-employed, a copy of the most recent business tax return in addition to your personal tax returns will be required. Some additional tax forms (K-1, form 1065, etc.) may be required by FACTS to complete their financial needs assessment for some families.
  • Copy of W-2 Forms

If you have further questions, contact the Enrollment Coordinator, Beth Pegram, for assistance at 252-431-1333 or via email at bpegram@ccscolts.org.

Opportunity Scholarship

CCS also accepts the Opportunity Scholarship that is offered by the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA). The Opportunity Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance of up to $4,200 per year for awarded students who enroll in a participating non-public school. This program is income-based. For more information on the Opportunity Scholarship or to apply, please visit http://www.ncseaa.edu/OSG.htm.

Families that are offered an Opportunity Scholarship can apply for CCS’s Tuition Assistance Program.
