  3. New student academic placement testing (1 hour)

After testing, students are mailed acceptance letters shortly after testing. Then, all students are mailed Welcome Packets in late July with the school year calendar and all details.

Scholarships:

Ohio offers three FREE tuition scholarships that can be used at Heritage Christian School in grades K-6! Our school believes that an excellent education should be accessible to all, and we work hard to make sure our school is affordable for families. If your student qualifies for one of these scholarships, the only cost to you will be a $100 new student registration fee for a new student, or a $50 re-enrollment fee each year for a returning student.

You do not have to live in the school districts that would have originally qualified you for an Ohio EdChoice scholarship. This is a completely new scholarship program that is focused on income and income only. As long as you are a resident in the state of Ohio, you can apply.

What is FACTS? FACTS is an online tool Heritage Christian uses to keep track of the financial obligations of the parents. Each Heritage family will be entered into FACTS to manage Activity Fees and New Student Registration Fees. 

How can I apply for Tuition Assistance? If you do not qualify for state scholarships through Ohio EdChoice, you may qualify for internal assistance. You will need to:

 

 

  1. Create an account by following the Facts Management Link.
  2. Insert your financial information following the prompts. A one time fee of $30.00 is required.
  3. Submit your request for Assistance.
  4. Pam Moody, Tuition Accounts, will contact you with the results of the application and will set up payment arrangements for your tuition. Additional fees for payment arrangements vary.

When can I apply? You can apply at anytime. However, there is a limited amount of money available through FACTS. February 1st is the first day new funds for the following school year are available. The sooner you apply, the more funds you will have access to.

  • Example: If you apply in the summer, you may qualify for more assistance according to your income, but the available funds will limit the financial award granted.

Am I guaranteed the same award amount for the school each year?  No. You must reapply every year for the coming school year. This takes some planning on your part, but it has been a huge blessing to several past and current Heritage families.

Further questions? Contact the Main Office at 330-452-8271 or email Pam Moody, Tuition Accounts. at pmoody@hcscanton.org.
