Tuition at Hill Country Christian School

Choosing where to send your child to school is one of the most important parenting decisions you’ll ever make.

This choice is not just about the best academic experience — it’s about the people who will mentor your child, the activities available to them, and the culture they’ll become a part of as they make lifelong friendships.

Tuition Assistance

At Hill Country, we strive to make high-quality Christian education accessible to as many families as possible. We offer several options that can either reduce the cost of tuition or make the investment more manageable. 

Tuition Assistance

Need-based tuition assistance may reduce your tuition cost. We use FACTS, a third-party agency, to determine eligibility through a confidential and impartial process. Many factors are considered — including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of your family.

Multi-Student Discount

Our discount rates are 5% for the second student, 10% for the third student, 15% for the fourth student, and 20% for the fifth student.

Payment Options

Tuition payments may be made annually, semi-annually, or monthly through FACTS. Many families agree that breaking tuition down into 12 monthly payments makes it more feasible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Hill Country determine if a family is eligible for reduced tuition?

Hill Country Christian School uses FACTS, a trusted third-party financial processor of tuition assistance applications that serves schools nationwide. FACTS not only examines annual income, but also considers many factors that make up a family’s overall financial picture. Families are notified of their tuition assistance award via email, and the tuition agreement is adjusted accordingly.

Is there a cap on available funds?

While Hill Country Christian School is pleased to offer tuition assistance, funds are not unlimited.
Families who need help affording private education should apply as soon as possible.

Could applying for tuition assistance diminish the chances of my child being accepted to Hill Country Christian School?

No. Admission and FACTS applications are reviewed separately, and applying for tuition assistance has no bearing on your child’s admissibility.
