Tuition & Financial Aid

Affording a Christian Education

Our Admissions and Business Offices are happy to work closely with families as they navigate tuition payments and need-based financial aid applications.

It is the policy of Chattanooga Christian School to award need-based financial aid to families who could not otherwise afford to attend CCS. CCS does not award academic or athletic scholarships.

For more information on applying to CCS, please contact our Admissions team at admisssions@ccsk12.com.

Financial Aid

The financial aid application is open September 1 through January 31 of each year for new families (deadline is December 31 for existing CCS families). Families must apply each year and complete the process—including submission of required tax documents—by the deadline in order to be considered in the first round of awards. CCS cannot guarantee financial aid for a family that completes the financial aid process after the deadline.

For new families, after submitting your online application for admission to CCS, click on the "Financial Aid Application Instructions" link under Financial Aid Resources. Financial aid will not be considered for a student unless an application for admission has been submitted to CCS.

Families who demonstrate financial need will receive their financial aid award information along with their offer of acceptance packet mailed on March 1.
