ODCS is committed to providing an exemplary education that is accessible to all Christian families regardless of social or economic status. ODCS’ Tuition Assistance Program is designed to help families who demonstrate a need for tuition assistance and ODCS will work diligently with each family to help make an ODCS education financially possible.
Who is eligible for Christian school tuition assistance?
ALL families who may require help with tuition and/or the facility reimbursement fee should apply for tuition assistance.
For re-enrolling families – you must be re-enrolled at ODCS and your re-enrollment fee paid for the new school year.
For new families – your application for admission must be completed and your application fee paid to ODCS before applying for tuition assistance. Tuition assistance awards will be communicated to the family after the student(s) has been accepted by ODCS.

FACTS charges a per family application fee of $35.
The following information is required in order for FACTS to process your application:
