Since our school’s founding, CAC’s board of directors has made it a goal to create an opportunity for a Christian education that is affordable to as many families as possible. We seek to partner with families to educate children for a life of service to God. While the primary responsibility for financing a student’s education rests with the family, we seek to accomplish this goal by keeping tuition costs as low as possible and by offering financial aid to families who need assistance.

ACE partners with CAC to offer partial tuition scholarships to students from low-income families so that they may attend the private school of their choice. The ACE scholarship follows the child throughout their K-12 education.
An ACE Scholarship will pay up to 50% of private school tuition, or a maximum of $3,000 per year for grades K-8 and $4,000 per year for high school. The families are responsible for working out a payment plan with the school for the remainder of the tuition.
