Greenville Classical Academy has a limited amount of funds set aside for student tuition assistance. Priority is given to returning families, and they are to complete and submit applications by December 2. A portion of the financial aid budget is reserved for newly enrolled families and will be made available on a first-come, first- served basis. For more information about tuition assistance, see the information below as well as the information on tuition assistance found in the Student-Parent Handbook.
GCA (Greenville Classical Academy) has allocated a certain amount of funds in its annual budget to assist those families who qualify based on financial need.
It is expected that families will pursue every other available means of aid (family, other scholarship funds, etc.) prior to applying for financial aid directly from GCA. If other funds are available to you, we expect that you will utilize them to make more of our financial aid budget available to other families in need.
If a family qualifies for financial aid from other scholarship sources or financial aid funds (other than GCA) after they have received an award from GCA, these funds will be used to reduce the amount of aid taken directly from GCA and will not necessarily reduce the family’s tuition obligation to the school.
Returning families will be given first priority in the distribution of available funds and must complete their online application by the listed deadline. However, a portion of the financial aid budget is reserved for new families who qualify.

Frequently Asked Financial Aid Questions:
Should I apply for aid?
We believe that the prime financial responsibility for a child’s education rests with the parents to the full extent that they are able. We would like to provide guidelines to help you decide whether to apply for aid, but we have found that each family’s combination of circumstances is unique. The most helpful guideline comes from your own knowledge of your family’s finances.
What if I have important information that I do not believe is covered in the questions that asked?
If you feel that the Tuition Assistance Committee needs additional information, please provide this information in the online application giving as much detail as possible. Tell how this situation has affected your ability to provide Christian education for your children. The letter section of the application will be forwarded to the Tuition Assistance Committee so it’s very important that if you have any extenuating circumstances (such as change in employment or a medical emergency), you address them in the letter section.
What do I need to do if my circumstances have changed since I completed my income tax forms?
Include this information in the letter section of the application explaining what has changed. State your best estimate of your annual income for the year in which you are applying for aid.
What if I have not filed income taxes for several years?
GCA requires verification of your annual income; therefore, your most recent tax return is required.
Are there any situations in which a tuition assistance grant would be recalculated?
If a family is awarded assistance based on multiple siblings attending GCA or other tuition-charging institutions and one or more of the siblings enrolls elsewhere, the family contribution of financial support must be recalculated according to these changed circumstances. Also, if the Tuition Assistance Committee becomes aware of information that suggests that the family’s ability to contribute to educational costs may be at a different level than previously determined, then the award will be re-evaluated. Should it be determined, at any time, that a family or applicant knowingly did not disclose significant income or assets, and that this failure to disclose resulted in a larger award of financial aid, then the award will be reviewed and decisions re-evaluated.
Will I have to reapply for aid again next year?
Yes, a family must reapply for scholarship assistance every year.
