CART stands for Certificates Allowing for Reduction in Tuition. This is an optional program you can participate in as little or as much as you like to save some money on your family’s tuition bill. You, friends, and family buy gift cards for places you shop anyway. A percentage of your purchase builds up and gets paid out to your tuition account twice per year.
Thank you for taking the step to explore the possibility of financial assistance at Lansing Christian School. The Student Help Fund is not a scholarship program as some schools run. This is a need-based program designed to help families that have run into unexpected financial circumstances that make it difficult for them to continue at Lansing Christian School. The Student Help Fund awards money that has been donated to the school through monetary donations, users of the CART program, and profits from the New2You Store that have been designated for this fund.
Illinois enacted the Invest In Kids Scholarship Tax Credit Program in 2017. This program offers a 75 percent income tax credit to individuals and businesses that contribute to qualified Scholarship Granting Organizations (SGOs). The SGOs then provide scholarships for students whose families meet the income requirements to attend qualified, non-public schools in Illinois. For more information, please contact the school office. Applications for scholarships typically open in January and more information will be available closer to that time. If you would like information on contributing to one of the Scholarship Granting Organizations, please contact our Development Director, Allison Alons, at email@example.com.
