Variable Tuition FAQ’s
How is a Top-Ranked Christian education affordable at Plumstead Christian School?
A PCS education is affordable for two reasons. First, no family at Plumstead Christian School pays more than 85% of what it costs to educate a student. This is made possible through the generous financial support of donors to our Annual Fund, our endowment, and other sources of income. Second, PCS is introducing our new Variable Tuition program.

Variable Tuition is not a “one-size-fits all” tuition approach.

This makes a Plumstead Christian School education accessible to many qualified families who would not otherwise be able to join our school community.

All families with children entering K-12th grades are eligible for Variable Tuition. Families can apply for a FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment through the FACTs website. Based on their assessment and our Variable Tuition Committee review, each family’s tuition rate is determined.
What Factors are considered when determining my Variable Tuition rate?
Many factors are considered including income, assets, unusual expenses, family size, and the number of children currently attending PCS.
When may families apply for Variable Tuition?
New families may apply for Variable Tuition in conjunction with their application process. Current families may apply for the following year starting in December and during the continued enrollment period.
When will I receive notification of my Variable Tuition rate?
