Financial Aid:

We recognize the cost of private school tuition may be a barrier for families who wish to provide their children with Christ-centered education. We would love to speak with you about any financial barriers to your child joining the MCA community.  McMinnville Christian Academy offers financial aid (scholarships) for families in need of tuition assistance. Families may apply for assistance any time during the year. Scholarships are awarded as funds are available. A financial aid packet can be picked up at the office of MCA or emailed upon request.  

Note: Financial aid is not available for preschool. 


Tuition Payment Options:

McMinnville Christian Academy offers two payment plans to meet your needs: a 10 month plan (September thru June) and full payment. Every family who elects to pay by a payment plan must enroll online with Blackbaud Tuition Management, our tuition management company. There will be a $50.00 per family Tuition Management fee.  Families who choose to pay in full do not need to enroll with Blackbaud Tuition Management, and will receive a discount (see below). Unless paying in full, no student will be considered enrolled until a payment plan is established. Any payments made by credit card will incur a 3% processing fee to cover costs.

A 2% cash discount is available on tuition if paid in full by August 1st.


* The $50 Blackbaud Tuition Management fee applies to preschool tuition, per family, unless paid in full.
