Financial Aid

Financial Aid at BCA

At Buffalo Christian Academy (BCA), we believe in providing educational opportunities to all families, regardless of financial circumstances. Our Financial Aid Program is designed to assist families based on demonstrated need and the availability of funds.

Approximately 27 percent of our current student population receives financial assistance annually. All application materials are held in strict confidence to protect the privacy of our families.

Applying for Financial Aid

We've partnered with TADS (Tuition Aid Data Services), a trusted financial aid service, to streamline the application process. TADS ensures the confidentiality of your financial information while helping our financial committee make well-informed decisions.

To apply for financial aid, complete the TADS Application/PFE by the designated deadlines:

  • April 30 for returning students

  • July 15 for new students

 

To begin your financial aid application, you will complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) then submit the required documents. The PFS is a comprehensive application that will take some time to complete. Give yourself the time you need by not waiting until our deadline approaches. You’ll need your most recent tax return before beginning the PFS.

TADS Application/Parents' Financial Statement

 

We will communicate our financial aid decision to you. To make our decision, confidentially, we use the information from the PFS as a starting point and consider our school policies, practices, and available budget.

Additional Information Required

In addition to the TADS application, please provide the following information:

  • How many people are in the household? How many of them are adults?

  • Are all adults employed full-time? Part-time? How many hours per week?

  • If unemployed, is the person looking for work? 

  • How many hours are you willing to volunteer at BCA? What skills would you bring to the table? 

  • How much can you pay for your student(s) tuition?

 

You can submit this information via email or drop it off at the school office.

Volunteering at BCA

Parental involvement through volunteering is crucial to the success of BCA. Volunteers foster partnerships between parents and the school, contributing significantly to cost savings and maintaining affordable tuition rates. Volunteering is particularly critical for families seeking financial aid to ensure access to a Christian education.

Options for volunteering include, but are not limited to:

  • Reading with students

  • Planning and setting up holiday parties

  • Maintaining uniform closet

  • Supervising lunch and lunch cleanup

  • Supervising lunch recess

  • Maintaining PE Equipment

  • Substitute teaching

  • Fundraiser planning and set up

Church Sponsorship

We encourage families who regularly attend churches to explore whether their home church offers scholarship opportunities for students to attend BCA. Additionally, families can seek individual sponsors to contribute towards their child's scholarship fund. Your proactive efforts in seeking financial assistance can make a significant difference in ensuring that your child receives the education they deserve.

It's important to note that educating each child requires approximately $500 per month. Even with financial aid, we must bring in this amount per child in donations and tuition. We invite churches to partner with BCA to help bridge the gap in any awarded financial aid.
