Financial Aid Information

We believe that every child who desires a Christian education should have one. Therefore, CCS and First Baptist Church, Port Charlotte are committed to working with families to help them afford Christian School. We accept state funded scholarships and also have a limited pool of scholarship monies available for families with demonstrated financial need.

Our best advice to a family who is struggling to determine if they can afford a CCS education is to meet with us and let us help you explore the options.

Step-Up for Students: A Florida State Funded Need-based Scholarship

Step Up for Students is an organization that provides partial scholarships to students who come from low-income families. These scholarships provide funds to help families pay for private school tuition. On average, SUFS funding pays 75-80% of the CCS enrollment cost. Families are responsible to pay the difference, but may apply for CCS financial aid if they qualify.
