Financial Assistance

Harbor Light Christian School strives to offer a quality education to students of all economic backgrounds who aspire to academic excellence, spiritual growth, and active participation in school activities.

While we seek to provide students with access to all the opportunities and programs that Harbor Light Christian School offers, tuition aid is granted purely on the basis of financial need, with the amount of the award being dependent upon the resources available. To be considered a family must apply for tuition aid through Confidential Financial Services, an independent 3rd party service.

If a grant is awarded, to continue receiving tuition aid, a student must be in good standing in both academics and citizenship.

Harbor Light Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in administering financial assistance.

Please contact the Admissions Office at Harbor Light Christian School for more information: Email hlcs@harborlight.org or call 231-347-7859.
