Tuition Assistance for 2020-21  ACS participates in FACTS, a grant application program for our school. Completion of the FACTS application is a requirement for next year's enrollment if you are expecting a remaining balance at the end of the school year or you will be requesting tuition assistance. Families who wish to apply for tuition assistance will need to use the FACTS application format online at  https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3Z45H.  The application information will be easily accessible data from your 2019 tax return, along with financial accounts, and will require that copies of confirming tax documents be sent to the FACTS center. The FACTS organization will analyze the information of each applicant. They will provide our school with recommended grant amounts based on need and financial status. Parents who have children in more than one of the participating schools need only to fill out the application one time-the information will be available to other Christian schools where their children attend. Applications must be submitted by March 31, 2020. The application fee will be paid by the participating schools.

Moms in Prayer   We are moms just like you from ACS, APS, and GV who can easily carry around the concerns of our homes, schools, and communities. We gather together weekly to direct these to and commune with a God who is near and who cares. We meet right here at Allendale Christian on Thursdays  from 8:30-9:30am  in the girls locker room!  All Moms are welcome, whether you desire to grow in this area or if it is your greatest passion; whether you can come for a season or regularly. We would love to meet you!
