MCA’s Tuition Aid Funds

Though educating a child is not affordable (the state of Iowa spends on average $17,031 per student), we want quality, Christian education to be accessible to any family who desires it for their children.

To that end, we work hard to establish a robust Tuition Aid fund to assist the families of Muscatine Christian Academy in meeting the portion of tuition costs that are just out of reach for their family.

Any family is eligible to apply for Tuition Aid. We use an aid assessment service through a company called FACTS to process Tuition Aid requests. You must be enrolled for the next school year before filling out the application online through FACTS. Instructions for application are included in the Enrollment Packet sent upon acceptance to MCA.
