ANNUAL FUND NEEDS DEFINED:
Tuition assistance, technology needs, and busing - your gift makes a difference in the lives of CMCS students and families!
Central Minnesota Christian School is committed to providing a Christ-centered, quality education to equip students for a life of service. With that mission in mind, leadership carefully determines a yearly budget to keep tuition as low as possible for families who desire Christian education.
Yet, there are three outstanding areas that operational support is needed for - these areas comprise the 2016-2017 Annual Fund Goal:
Tuition Assistance - Each family is asked to pay the full cost of tuition, however, if they are unable to do so, they can apply for tuition assistance by submitting proof of various financial information to a third party company that analyzes the need and determines a suggested amount the family can afford. Approximately 50% of CMCS families receive assistance to some degree. Here's the difference it's making for a current family...
"We believe Christian education is worth the sacrifices we need to make as a family. We're grateful for the way Central, through the generosity of donors, helps us bridge the gap even further to make sending our kids here a reality. We trust that in the future, we'll be able to give back in the same way!"
Technology - It's used in the learning process from 4K-12th grade. Chromebooks (laptops), projectors, bulbs, applications for iPads, etc. are all part of ongoing technology costs. Using technology in learning increases student engagement and understanding, reduces paper waste, and creates competency of technology usage in preparation for college, the workforce, and life interactions.
Busing - Routes service students from a 4-county area. Maintenance/repair of owned buses, salary for drivers, insurance, leasing fees, fuel, etc. are part of busing costs. Busing service is included in tuition fees and benefits families.
