We recognize that Christian education is a great investment that, for many of our families, requires great sacrifice. That’s why we are deeply committed to providing them with the financial assistance they need to make a Legacy education affordable.
Many of our families receive tuition support from their churches and other outside institutions, as well as from our Tuition-Cap Program. The Tuition-Cap Program was created to ensure that Legacy families pay no more than a specified percentage (determined annually) of their adjusted gross income - up to 50% tuition assistance may be available. This program is funded by the Annual Spring Auction as well as gifts from other donors or sources. The 2010 Spring Auction raised $35,000. The Tuition-Cap amount that will be received by families in the 2010-2011 school year is over $70,000. Because the funds tend to be expended for the school year following the auction, the tuition-cap program is reviewed annually and adjusted to benefit as many families as possible. For the current tuition-cap formula, contact Karen Brinks at the
We are currently working with Development to establish and fund the Tuition Assistance program. This fund will be used to aid families over and above the Tuition-Cap program and is administered by the finance committee.
The finance committee of the school board works hard to utilize the funds available to aid families in every way possible. The members of the finance committee for 2010-2011 include Mark Wierenga - Chairman, Dave VanderLaan -Treasurer, Karen Brinks - Financial Secretary, Glen Carlson - Secretary, Greg VanTol, and Brenda Bosch - member-at-large.
Our Tuition Reduced Incentive Program (TRIP) is another way for Legacy parents to receive tuition help. For more information about TRIP and how to participate, please click on the Legacy Parents Tab.
Through progressive tuition support programs like these, we’re making Christian education economical for families of today and generations of families to come.
