Harbor Light Christian School offers scholarship and tuition assistance through an application process. Families who would like to be considered for scholarship/financial assistance are required to complete an online application with Confidential Financial Analysis (CFA), a Christian company. Upon reviewing and verifying the application information, CFA recommends to Harbor Light Christian School a monthly contribution the family can provide towards their child/ren’s tuition. Harbor Light Christian School considers the school’s financial ability to provide scholarship/assistance along with CFA’s recommendation to make a scholarship/assistance award to the applicants.
We strongly encourage families seeking scholarship/assistance to be in prayer for financial resources; such as, your home Church, family members, friends, and others who can help financially. Through your prayers and desire to have your child/ren attend Harbor Light Christian School, the Lord will direct your path and provide, if you are doing your part in His plan.
