Tuition Assistance


At Pasadena Christian School, tuition assistance is awarded across TK-8th grade levels and is a confidential and thoughtful process.  Families interested in applying for tuition assistance will need to complete an online application with FAST-ISM starting November 1, 2020 for the 2021-2022 school year (link below).

Tuition assistance is not automatically renewed.  In order to be considered for the program, you must reapply each year by completing an application with FAST.  For questions regarding tuition assistance, please contact Magda Zarifian in the PCS Business Office at (626)-773-7905 ex.225.

Based on the financial information you provide to FAST, the PCS Tuition Assistance Committee determines the amount of assistance to award based on an impartial analysis of your finances, consideration to special circumstances, and the amount of funding available.
