- Application Process
Apostles Lutheran School uses the Grant & Aid Assessment department of FACTS Management Company to process and evaluate all financial assistance applications. Applications are completed on-line at https://online.factsmgt.com/aid.
FACTS gathers information from each family applying and provides a detailed assessment to Apostles. The tuition assistance committee will review the data and make approvals based on available resources. Your current tax return documentation is required as well as a $25.00 non-refundable application fee to FACTS.
Tuition assistance will be considered if your account is in good standing, all enrollment and registration fees are paid, and IRS forms have been submitted to FACTS . Only completed applications with IRS forms submitted through FACTS will be considered.
Apostles Lutheran School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality or ethnic origin, or socioeconomic status.
Families who may think Christian education is financially out of reach are encouraged to apply for assistance. Grants are awarded based on need. Apostles awards grants to families who are low-income earners.
