Financial Aid

" In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive." - Acts 20:35

Banner Christian School established a Tuition Assistance Fund to assist qualifying families who have sacrificed to make Christian education a priority in their family. The fund is financed through contributions from interested individuals, school fund-raisers, the school’s general operating fund, and funding through the Virginia Education Improvement Scholarship. The Tuition Assistance Fund is applicable only to tuition costs and is not extended to other charges such as registration fees. A new application must be submitted each year for tuition assistance. This application is considered confidential and will be reviewed only by those serving on the Tuition Assistance Committee. In order for us to consider your application for tuition assistance, all of the requirements must be met by the deadline dates to give FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment and the Tuition Assistance Committee adequate time to process the applications and allocate any available funds.

Banner is excited to see the growing popularity of this fund since its inception two years ago.  Unfortunately, the demand is greater than the supply as we are limited with the amount of dollars available in the fund.  Therefore, we have decided to institute several deadline dates in which we will review completed application and award tuition assistance.  Please note, in order to be considered for tuition assistance, your FACTS application must be completed in its entirety.  Included in the application process is the submission of your 2017 tax returns.  The dates are as follows:

Application Completed

April 15
May 15
June 15
July 15

Assistance Awarded

May 1
June 1
July 1
August 1


Each of the above dates is contingent on funds still being available.  Once the funds have been exhausted, the assistance awards will be concluded.  Therefore, if you desire to apply for tuition assistance, please submit your completed application as soon as possible.  You can access the application at
https://factsmgt.com/parent-resources/grant-and-aid/.   If you have any questions regarding the application, you can contact FACTS directly at 1-866-441-4637.  Any other questions can be directed to Banner’s finance director, Mr. Stephen Wolf at 804-276-5200.
