Financial Aid

Financial Aid

City Tree strives to make its tuition affordable, but we recognize that the cost might be difficult for some families to pay. 

Applying for Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available on a need basis to current students and new students. Assistance is given based on financial need, merit and City Tree Christian's ability to meet that need. Priority is given to families who have a long-term supportive relationship with City Tree Christian School and/or First Presbyterian Church of San Diego. Students must be in good academic and behavioral standing with the school in order to be considered for assistance and to continue to qualify for assistance.  Financial Aid offerings are reviewed annually.  Applications are due in April each year.  New students that miss the April deadline are still welcome to apply.  

Steps to Apply for Financial Aid:

1. Fill out the Application which is available online and in the school office.  Submit the completed application along with complete copies of your most recent income tax return and any other relevant financial information. New students must also submit two recommendation letters. All information will be kept confidential.  The deadline for current students applying for financial aid for the following year is April.  



2. Once all financial information is received, a committee from the CTCS School Board reviews the financial documents and makes Aid decisions.  The committee may ask additional questions or request additional information.

3. Families are typically notified of aid decisions by June.  New students will be notified prior to enrollment.
