Financial Aid

Milpitas Christian School sets aside funds to offer financial aid to those that are in need. Applications are accepted February through April for the upcoming school year.
When completing an application for financial assistance, MCS uses an outside vendor called Confidential Financial Services (CFS) (Link). The applicant will provide financial information to help determine how we can best support and assist the applicant family. You are welcome to check with the Business Office at any time to see where you are in the process.
Steps to take:
  1. Click the link for CFS on the MCS web site (the CFS image to the right). When the page opens, you can start by reviewing the documents and directions under "download application" link. Worksheets are provided for those that are self employed. Hard copies are available in our business office.
  2. Submit the application and fee to CFS.
  3. CFS may subsequently send a request for additional information, such as (but not limited to) IRS form 1040, pay stubs, or an explanation in changes of income or debt. Once these documents are submitted and verified by CFS your status will be communicated to the school.
  4. To complete the process the applicant is required to watch a video regarding personal finances. The video will be provided by CFS via Real Media. Once all requirements are completed your financial aid request will be submitted to the Financial Aid Committee.
  5. The Financial Aid Committee reviews applications regularly and once an award is determined you will be notified by mail. 
  6. Once awarded, the applicant will sign and return notification agreeing to the discounted tuition rate. If there are questions about the award, please contact the Business Office.
The Milpitas Christian School ID is 56530.
