Financial Aid

Think you can't afford Christian education? Think again.

ZCS believes everyone should have access to high-quality Christian education.
We offer different types of need-based assistance that accommodate your family’s specific financial situation.

We have families paying only $100/mo.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance is offered for families with children in K-8th grade, up to 50% of a family’s tuition cost. If a family also has a preschool or young fives student,  that tuition is accounted for when awarding assistance. Currently, we do not offer tuition assistance for families with only children enrolled in preschool. To see if you may be eligible for Tuition Assistance, please see the chart below. The average family qualifies for $4300 in tuition assistance.

The purpose of the THRIVE Scholarship is to make sure anyone with a financial need has access and is able to thrive at Zeeland Christian School. If you are in a situation where no amount of personal sacrifice would make even 50% of tuition possible, the THRIVE Scholarship Fund could help create a way to send your children to ZCS. NOTE: Preschool families may apply for the THRIVE scholarship.

“After I began suffering from a painful medical condition and accumulating incredible debt, we didn’t know how we were going to pay for Christian education. It was made possible by God through a financial scholarship from the collective heart of ZCS."
