What is the Tuition Grant Program?

An education at Christian Unified may be one of the most important investments a family can make in their child’s future.  We recognize that such an investment creates a financial burden for many families.  Consequently, Christian Unified Schools administers a proactive tuition grant program funded by contributions from special friends and alumni.  A tuition assistance grant is different from a scholarship.  A tuition grant is a tuition reduction based on demonstrated financial need only.  In this way, many Christian families are enabled to enroll their students.  Christian Unified Schools utilizes the services of FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Program to assist with the school’s determination of a family’s ability to afford the costs of private education.  The desire of our school is to offer a Christian education to as many families as possible regardless of their economic status.

Who Should Apply?

Your family’s financial situation is the best indicator of your financial need.  If you feel that the full cost of tuition would create an undue financial burden, you are encouraged to apply.

Tuition Grant Guidelines

  • Students who receive tuition assistance grants are required to re-apply each year for continued support.  Re-applications are re-evaluated based on a family’s continued need.
  • CUSSD does not award a full grant to any student.  We try to provide as much assistance as possible, but we believe that ultimately each family is responsible for the cost of the education of their child.  Therefore, each family is asked to contribute something to the cost of their child’s education.  The amount varies according to the financial resources of each family, but is limited to a maximum of 50% of the tuition rate.
  • A tuition assistance grant covers tuition only.  Tuition assistance grants do not cover the application fee, registration fee, uniforms, or extra-curricular activities.

HISTORY

The Christian Unified School District was founded in 1965 by Drs. Tim and Beverly LaHaye to provide an educational program for the people of San Diego County that equips and nurtures the whole child—mentally, socially, physically, spiritually and morally.

MISSION

Recognizing the preeminence of Christ, partnering with parents, Christian Unified Schools of San Diego teaches students to think, learn, and live from a Biblical worldview by integrating God and His Word as the primary source of knowledge and truth.

VISION

Led by Pastor David Jeremiah, Christian Unified Schools of San Diego desires that students acquire deep and personal knowledge of Christ and His Word, achieve the highest levels of Christian scholarship and learning, and accomplish the eternal purposes for which God created them.

Family Statement of Faith

  • The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs.  The Bible itself, as the inspired, inerrant, plenary, and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.  For purposes of CUSSD’s faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, Shadow Mountain Community Church is CUSSD’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
  • We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through the shedding of His blood, in His bodily resurrection on the third day, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and In His personal pre-millennial return to rapture His Church before the Tribulation and His glorious appearing to set up His Millennial Kingdom.   
  • We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith, apart from works by the merit of the shed blood of Christ, and that the born-again believer is eternally secure in Christ.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the individual priesthood of the believer.
  • We believe life begins at conception.
  • We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning; the uniting of one biological man and one biological woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25.)  We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a biological man and a biological woman who are married to each other. (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4.)  We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
  • We believe that the Scripture dictates standards of sexual behavior. The unique roles of the male and female are clearly defined in Scripture. Any promiscuity, homosexuality, gender identity issues or other deviations from Biblical principles is a sin that is offensive to God (Matt. 5:18-19; I Cor. 6: 9-10, 19-20; Eph. 5:3-5; 1 Thess. 4:3-8).
