Affording Houston Christian
Please do not apply for financial aid for the 2017 - 2018 school year until November 1, 2016.
HC is partners with Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process financial aid applications. FAST provides a user-friendly process to our families applying for aid.
Financial aid is awarded to attract qualified individuals who could not otherwise afford a private college preparatory education. Only accepted students and/or current students are offered financial aid.
Awards are based only on demonstrated financial need. Although the school will attempt to meet all demonstrated need, the availability of funding for financial aid will, at times, limit the ability to meet all need.
The school strictly safeguards the confidentiality of all financial information supplied by the family. The school maintains that the primary responsibility for financing education rests with the parents/guardians of the student. Accordingly, in calculating a family's ability to contribute to their child's cost of education, a reasonable amount of income may be imputed for a non-working parent. Financial aid may also be awarded in situations when an incumbent family experiences an unexpected financial hardship such as job loss.
Applicants are notified of the Committee's decision by letter within one week of the decision by the Financial Aid Committee.
The school uses a third party service (FAST, a subsidiary of Independent School Management) to assist in the confidential evaluation of financial resources available for private school tuition. Houston Christian High School adheres to the National Association of Independent School (NAIS) Principles of Good Practice for Financial Aid Administration.
