Affording Tuition

Committed to helping families afford Christian Education

Tuition Assistance Program through FACTS

Paying tuition can be a great challenge for some families attending JCS. Family circumstances are all unique and many life changes happen from year to year. In many cases, we have seen extended family members or churches provide support for families.
Jenison Christian School has also been able to provide tuition assistance based on need and as the school has funds available. If your family is seeking tuition assistance for next year through JCS, please Click Here to apply through our online application process (administered by FACTS Management Inc). 
Our first round deadline for consideration will be to applications submitted by March 31st. If you have any questions, please call our office at 616-457-3301. Click here to begin the FACTS application process. Click here for information on the Tuition Assistance program.

Jenison Christian Education Foundation Grant

This is a fund established to keep Christian education affordable for all families. This grant is automatically applied to every family's cost before the upcoming school year's tuition pricing is set as an effort to keep the cost for families as low as possible.

REVIVE store

The Revive resale store, sponsored by Unity Christian High School, was started in 2010. The proceeds are to help keep Christian education affordable by providing funds for tuition assistance for Unity, Jenison, Allendale, Borculo, Hudsonville, South Olive, and Lamont Christian schools. The store is located on the corner of 36th Avenue and Baldwin Street and is always looking for volunteers and donations of clothing and housewares to help support Christian education.


Many Jenison Christian families also receive tuition assistance or adjustments through their churches. Ask our church if they have a program for tuition assistance.

Payment Plans

Jenison Christian School has multiple payment plans available to help fit with family preferences and budgeting styles including monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual payments. These payments may be made directly from ACH debit withdrawal or by checks.
