Family Individualized Tuition (FIT)

How Do I Apply For FIT?

Shoreline Christian School uses the FACTs Grant & Aid tool to determine a FIT plan. Start your application with FACTs. Incomplete applications may not receive full consideration for FIT. Please call the Business Office at 206.364.7777 or email Cynthia Gray for additional information.

Note: Applying for admission to Shoreline Christian School and applying for FIT are two separate processes. FIT is awarded on an annual basis and must be re-applied for each year (although current students are offered re-enrollment every year).

Confidentiality Statement

Shoreline Christian School treats all financial information provided by families as strictly confidential. FIT assessments are reviewed by a small FIT committee with personal identifying information redacted. FIT assessments are reported and billed to families by our accountant under the supervision of our Head of School.

FAQs, application instructions, and resources

FIT is available for any family with at least one student in a full day program in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. International students are not eligible for FIT at this time. By law, international students are required to show proof of financial ability to live and study in the United States.

The FIT committee uses the standardized calculation derived by FACTs as a guide in customizing your tuition. This system considers gross taxable and non-taxable income, assets, liabilities, family size and the number of students in tuition-charging schools or colleges. After an allowance for basic necessities and required taxes, the remaining funds are considered available for education on a sliding scale by FACTs.

In the case of divorced or separated parents, we ask both parents to complete a financial statement to provide a complete picture of all family resources. We are aware that circumstances differ widely among separated or divorced parents and encourage you to contact the Business Office if there is difficulty in providing the requested information.
