WE WANT YOU TO BE HERE
SEE GOD WORKING AT JUDAH CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
At Judah, we've awarded a little over $219,000 per year (on average) in Variable Tuition awards since 2006. Over time we've awarded over $4.3M in awards and partial scholarships to families.
We want you to be here. Through the compassion of donors and our school we want to make it possible for you.
What is Variable Tuition? Variable Tuition is an award of a partial scholarship for your student based on your finances.
Judah works with a private third party that helps to match your tuition with your family's unique financial position. You confidentially submit your information to our partner through an online application, and they make a private, unbiased recommendation to Judah on your variable tuition award, ranging from 10% off to a max of 50% off of the annual posted tuition for that academic year...making it possible for many families to attend.
If you wish for more information before applying, or to learn what assistance may be available for your family, please reach out to bookkeeping at 217-359-1701 ext. 189.
