We believe that all children should have access to a Christian education. In order to facilitate such access, we work with each family on an individual basis to find ways to finance their child’s education at Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy. Given on a limited basis, assistance may be available on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Sources for tuition assistance may include, community foundations, church organizations, private donations, and work-study programs.
In order to receive financial assistance from any source, families must complete the HVCA Financial Aid Application.
