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, especially if they wish to enroll more than one child. We would be happy to speak with you about any financial barriers to your child(ren) joining the MCA community.  McMinnville Christian Academy offers reduced tuition (scholarship support) for families in need of tuition assistance. Families may apply for assistance any time during the year. Scholarships are awarded as the budget allows. MCA does not offer tuition assistance for preschool students. A financial aid packet can be picked up at the office of MCA or emailed upon request. Please review the terms of the financial aid packet for more details.


Tuition Payment Options:

McMinnville Christian Academy offers two tuition payment options; a 10-month payment plan or paid in full for the year. Families who choose the 10-month payment plan must enroll with our tuition management company. Monthly payment plans will have a one-time $50 tuition management fee (per family). Families who choose to pay in full do not need to enroll with the management company.

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.  Families who enroll after the start of the year will receive a prorated tuition amount.

A 3% discount is available on tuition if paid in full by the first day of school.
