Tuition & Financial Assistance
At Grace Baptist Academy, we strongly believe that Christian education is not a commodity. It's a ministry. It's a commitment. And most importantly, it's a partnership - a connection between your child's needs, your family philosophy and our philosophy.
That's why at Grace Academy, the first and most important consideration is what is best educationally for your child. All other considerations are secondary.
But money IS important, and tuition is an investment into the life of your child. We recognize the sacrifice that all of our families make to give their children an excellent Christian education. We are committed to providing a high quality program at a reasonable cost to parents. You can review our current tuition and enrollment policies by downloading the document GBA Tuition rates for 2020-21 by clicking this LINK.
Recognizing the economic challenges some face, we are pleased to offer over $600,000 in needs-based financial assistance for the upcoming school year. While we are not able to provide full scholarships, we do all we can to assist families who demonstrate a financial need through the application process managed by an on-line, third party vendor called FACTS. Their goal is to confidentially assist in determining financial need for our current and new families. Our admissions staff can be reached at 423-892-8224 x.1 or [email protected] and will be glad to give more information and answer any questions you have about tuition and financial aid.
In order to be considered for financial aid, parents must have completed the application process to GBA for their students. No awarding of tuition assistance is done until students are accepted by GBA. Applying online is the only way to submit your application to FACTS. If you believe that you qualify for needs-based assistance, please go to: www.factstuitionaid.com.
