An expense is something that, over time, decreases in value. An investment, however, increases in value, and Christian education is certainly an investment. It will pay dividends, not only during your lifetime through your children, but through the principles and values that they in turn will teach their children.
Each family's tuition will be unique dependent on age and number of children. There are also family-specific details related to tax receiptable portions of tuition that affect the impact to your family budget. Contact us so we can help you understand how your situation would work.

The Bursary Fund
The Bursary Fund was established for the purpose of distributing financial aid in the form of bursaries to families of London Christian Elementary School. Families who have legitimate financial need are eligible for assistance. Families may receive up to 50% of the value of tuition; however this is dependent on the year and funds available. Most recently, the average financial assistance granted has ranged from 25-35% of total tuition. The application form will require proof of financial status, and parents must be willing to meet and discuss their application with representative of the committee.
Process for returning families:
1. E-mail our tuition administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will get you started with a link to a web-based application.
Process for new families not currently enrolled at LCES:
1. Contact the principal (email@example.com or 519-455-0360) to learn about our school, visit and take a tour of our facilities, and share the details about your child(ren) that you are considering enrolling.
2. Decide that our school option is match for you and your family. Apply to the school using the application directly provided for your in step #1.
3. During this process, confirm your request for consideration of bursary assistance. You will be given a link to complete the basic information gathering on-line. This information will then be relayed to a separate, confidential small group who oversees the distribution of assistance. They will contact you directly to arrange individual contact at a day and time that works for you.
Alongside the LCES Bursary Fund, certain families may be eligible for additional financial assistance from another organization called the Christian School Foundation. Applications are handled confidentially through the school bookkeeper. To allow for sufficient time to adequately consider all requests for assistance, and meet the various Bursary Fund deadlines, applications should be completed and sent to us as soon as possible. Bursary Fund decisions [from all sources] are dependent upon available funds, and award decisions for eligible families can begin as early as the beginning of May for the following school year. After receiving your completed application, a Bursary Fund organizer will be in contact with you to discuss options.
