Financial Aid (Scholarships)

Morning Star Academy's financial aid program is need-based. Parents bear the foremost responsibility for providing for their child(ren)'s education.  Private Christian education will always require commitment and sacrifice on the part of the parents If a family desires a classical and Christian education for their child(ren), we want to make it possible. We use an independent agency called FACTS to assess families' financial needs. FACTS will make a recommendation to the school regarding scholarships. Morning Star Academy administrators reviews their recommendations and grants funds accordingly. Financial aid is available for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. Multi-student discounts are also awarded through the FACTS process – students in first through twelfth grade are considered towards the multi-student discount.
