I am EXTREMELY grateful for the Rock Academy. There was a time where things changed in our family dynamic and I was no longer able to afford the cost of tuition. I am so so thankful for the financial aid that supports families like mine. The Rock is more than a school where kids meet their education needs and build their foundation in Christ. It is a community that truly cares about you as a person and your family as a unit.


I watched my daughter bloom spiritually, academically, & emotionally as her teachers poured into her daily through teaching, wise counsel, & prayer. This was possible through the tuition assistance that was provided to us. I believe it is important to set my child on the right path surrounded by people who will help her to make right choices. I thank God for the assistance that allows my daughter to be attend this excellent school.

High School Parent

As a part of the tuition assistance committee, it is rewarding to get to know the families we have the privilege to partner with through tailored tuition. We are so blessed to support families that are willing to make Christian education a priority. Our families on tailored tuition would not be here without this partnership.

Do I have to apply at a certain time of year to be eligible?

Applications for Tailored Tuition are considered on a rolling basis and can be submitted with a completed application for admission any time of year. In most cases, the school is able to communicate the Tailored Tuition award within two weeks after a prospective family submits the Tailored Tuition application and supporting documents to our third-party vendor. Families who are a part of the Tailored Tuition program need to reapply each year, and their applications are re-evaluated based on their family’s continued need, while yearly awards are dispersed based on availability of tuition assistance funds.

How does Tailored Tuition work?

Tailored Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. Families apply for a reduced tuition rate that fits their income level. This makes it possible for some families to afford a Rock Academy education who would otherwise not be able to do so. The Rock Academy uses the financial analysis of FACTS Grant and Aid, an unbiased third party, to determine need. Facts Grant and Aid requires parents to complete an online or paper analysis statement annually. All supporting documents must be completed and submitted to and verified by FACTS before any application will be reviewed.

Tuition assistance only applies to a portion of the tuition. Tuition assistance does not cover registration, uniforms, or any other additional fees.

All financial information is held in complete confidence.

Who can apply for Tailored Tuition?

Any family who is unable to afford the Rock Academy without additional support is encouraged to apply. Applying for Tailored Tuition does not affect the admission or re-enrollment process.

Is there a cost to apply?

Yes. There is a small fee paid to FACTS, our third-party vendor.

How do I apply?

A link to the Tailored Tuition application is available here. Applications are submitted directly to FACTS, our third-party vendor, who evaluates the application and makes a recommendation to the Tailored Tuition committee. The school will notify each family that applies generally within two weeks of the time the application and supporting materials are submitted to FACTS.

Is the school able to meet the needs of all students?

Unfortunately, no. However, it is a high priority for us so we dedicate a portion of the budget and annual fundraising to make the school accessible to as many students and families as possible.

Should every family applying for admission or re-enrolling at the Rock Academy submit an application for Tailored Tuition?

No. Families should apply only if they are not able to pay if Tailored Tuition is needed in order for their children to attend the school.

Do I need to apply for Tailored Tuition every year?

Yes. A new application must be submitted every year.

Do I need to apply for admission separately from applying for Tailored Tuition?

Yes. For new students, application to the Rock Academy and application for Tailored Tuition are two separate processes. However, new families may complete both application processes simultaneously.

What level of income is typical of a family who qualifies for Tailored Tuition?

This ranges widely. The process looks at income, assets, unusual expenses, and number of children.

Are some families awarded full tuition?

Only in exceeding rare circumstances. Providing children with a Christian education is a choice parents make, and every family is required to make a financial investment in their child’s education. We offer Tailored Tuition to help make it possible for some families with varying income levels to attend the school. The amount of awards varies according to the financial resources of each family. However, the Rock Academy typically does not award more than 50 percent of the tuition to any student. While the Rock Academy tries to provide as much assistance as possible, the school is limited in its tuition assistance resources. There is an appeal process for more aid from fundraised dollars above 50 percent for qualifying circumstances and based on availability.
