Scholarships

Very Involved Volunteers

Parent volunteers support the school while showing their children the importance of participating in the larger community. At Faith Lutheran School, each family is required to complete 10 volunteer hours. However, we offer Very Involved Volunteer (VIV) positions and tuition discounts as the school sees a need. These duties, roles, and hours vary each year. In order to receive the tuition discount, you must apply for the VIV position and, once accepted, you will receive tuition discount for the hours you complete.

There are several VIV positions available. Please inquire within the school office to learn more about those opportunities.

Need-based Scholarships

Faith Lutheran School offers limited tuition assistance to families seeking private early education who might not have access due to financial constraints. To be considered for tuition assistance and scholarships, families must complete the following steps:

  • Send a statement to FLS school board with a brief summary of your needs so they can better understand your reasons for requesting a scholarship.
  • Submit 3 current pay stubs from all people earning wages in the household.
  • Submit tax returns (1040, 1099, W2) from all people earning wages in household in the last 2 years. Submit a statement of child support, if applicable.
  • Indicate your household size.

Faith’s school board reviews the above documents and grants assistance based on determined needs and availability of scholarship funds.

Deadline: All scholarship applications are due March 1st so they can be reviewed at the March board meeting. If funds are still available after the March meeting, scholarships may still be awarded to those who apply after the deadline.

An application must be made each year; awards are not automatically renewed.

State Subsidies

Faith Lutheran School accepts state subsidies. Several state child care subsidy programs help eligible families with children pay child care costs. The most common is the Working Connections Child Care program, which helps families who are working and have incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. Other programs offer help for families who are seasonal workers, or who qualify through specific Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) programs. Families who are interested in these programs should start by contacting DSHS to see if they qualify for subsidies, using the Community Services Office website or by calling toll-free 1-877-501-2233.

Please contact the school director with any questions about state subsidies.
