Financial Aid

Generous Tuition Assistance Is Granted on a Per Family Basis by Application to FACTS

Tuition Assitance. West Shore Christian Academy is committed to making a WSCA Christian education available to families who share the school’s mission and vision. We work hard to keep tuition rates as reasonable as possible, without sacrificing the quality of education our parents and students expect. We want to provide the best teachers and the best educational experience possible for your child(ren). To help families with the cost of education, WSCA offers a payment plan, as well as need-based financial aid.

Financial Aid. Financial aid is designed to assist qualifying families who have sacrificed to make Christian education a priority for their family. Made available through the generous donations of alumni, parents, grandparents, friends of the school, and local businesses, the process for applying for aid is simple.

WSCA utilizes FACTS Grant and Aid Processing and the application can be done online. Financial aid is based on a formula that looks at variables such as family size, income, and assets. Detailed information on the financial aid procedure is available by contacting the WSCA Admissions office, 717-737-3550 ext. 8006 for more information.

WSCA strives to build a financial partnership between your family and the school, and through our Admissions and Finance Offices, we offer financial planning for families.

What is FACTS? FACTS provides WSCA families a need-based financial analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. FACTS does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give. The recommendation reports from FACTS are reviewed by the Financial Controller and Superintendent with final approval from the Finance Committee.

Who should apply? Those families who feel they cannot afford the regular monthly tuition payment should apply. The cost to apply is $35. Payment must be made using a credit card.

WSCA School Temporary Closure Announcement due to COVID-19

WSCA School Closure Announcement

Out of an abundance of caution, West Shore Christian Academy is following other local school districts’ decision to close beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, 2020. We will plan to resume school on Monday, March 30, 2020. It is important to note that, at this time, WSCA does not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, we will be implementing a distant learning plan in an attempt to redeem instructional time so we can continue to fulfill state instructional hour requirements. As we communicated last night, next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 16-19) will be vacation days for the students as faculty and staff report for in-service to begin implementing our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
