Tuition and Financial Information
Keeping Tuition Affordable
Recognizing that a Christian education often comes with a significant financial commitment for many families, Whitinsville Christian School diligently strives to keep tuition affordable.
A highly significant addition to our financial model has been Treasures, an upscale thrift store located at Koopman Plaza in North Grafton. Since opening in June 2008, Treasures has contributed $382,000 toward tuition reduction and $220,000 toward the field house fund at WCS, with its contribution to tuition reduction increasing each year.
Our Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP) is a tuition assistance opportunity open to all WCS families. TRIP is currently saving participating families an average of $300 per year; however, many families save in the range of $500 to $1000 each year.

“What I love about WCS is how issues are dealt with, and, in the process, the clear training students also receive on how to deal with issues. Parental input, even constructive input, is not discounted or swept aside, but is considered carefully and with sincere respect. I also like the small community environment, the prompt identification of problems, that God is important in any discussion, the effective balance of a wide variety of denominations by the teachers, an openness to all truth, the environment that involvement in the Arts does not having damaging effects among peer groups, the economic diversity of families, committed teachers, and that the curriculum is dynamic, changing and improving on an annual basis.” -Kim B.
