Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)
Tuition assistance for grades 1 – 12 is available through the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). This past year (2017-2018) approximately 26% of the student body (136 students from 70 families) received a total of $200,000 in financial assistance, with the average award being $1,500/student.
We partner with Covenant Tuition Services, Inc., which features an online Tuition Assistance application to better serve you. Simply fill out the required information online and upload the completed application. Supporting documentation can also be scanned in and uploaded or can be mailed in.

Treasures and T.R.I.P
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 $965,000 toward tuition reduction.
Our Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (TRIP) is a tuition savings opportunity from ShopWithScrip® that is open to all WCS families. By purchasing gift cards for businesses that offer a rebate, 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. If your child(ren) no longer attends WCS, you may apply the credit to the balance of your tuition account, to another family’s account, or to the WCS Tuition Assistance Fund.
To register for TRIP, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To visit the ShopWithScrip® website, please click here.
