The Fairfax Christian School is committed to making the best private school experience accessible for our families. In the 2018-2019 school year, we awarded over $1,400,000 in tuition assistance and scholarships.

Affordable Tuition Plan

Our Affordable Tuition Plan uses a market–based approach to customize tuition assistance. This program is similar to the tuition programs used by many colleges and universities.

Our Affordable Tuition Plan opens the door to qualified families who want to attend the Fairfax Christian School. The Fairfax Christian School uses a third–party tuition service, FAST, to evaluate a family's economic circumstances including the number of children in the household, family income, assets and liabilities. For your tuition estimate, please call our Admissions Office at 703-759-5100.

Our Affordable Tuition Plan is based on full family income. All resources of both parents and/or stepparents must be considered and must be submitted in the application process regardless of custody. Families with income of $200,000 or less may qualify for some assistance.

Families who are applying for the Affordable Tuition Plan must submit a FAST application.
