An SFC education is more affordable than you think.

Affording an SFC education

We want every qualified, mission-appropriate student to be given the opportunity to attend SFC… but we know that for many families, the investment can be a challenge. Families may be awarded tuition assistance on the basis of a demonstrated financial need in grades K-12. Our goal is to make a Christian education accessible to many.

SFC uses an independent, third-party assessor, Financial Aid For School Tuition (FAST), to determine tuition awards. Tuition assistance awards are grants — a gift to your family — not a loan that needs to be repaid.

All inquiries are kept confidential. Families new to SFC should apply for admission and tuition assistance concurrently. Admissions and tuition assistance processes are distinct and separate. Tuition assistance has no bearing on the Admission Committee’s deliberations and its assessment of an applicant’s potential as a Santa Fe Christian student. SFC is not accepting international student applications. SFC subscribes to the philosophy of needs-based financial aid as opposed to merit-based scholarships. Consequently, no awards are made solely on the basis of academic, athletic or artistic ability. To receive financial aid, a student’s family must demonstrate financial need.

A non-refundable registration fee of a $500 and a $1,500 tuition deposit is due when an enrollment contract is submitted. The $500 registration fee is waved for families who are on tuition assistance. Tuition can be paid monthly, semi-annually or annually.
