Financial Aid Merit Clause
Based on Renton Prep’s Mission, Vision, and Action
The Renton Prep Christian School merit clause is in place to confirm to the leadership team, students, administration, faculty, staff, and external vendors that our student body represents the principles and values in the mission, vision, and action of our schools. A student or family can not disrupt the educational process (when receiving financial aid).
Renton Prep Christian Schools’ mission is to offer a secure environment in a technology enabled Christ-Centered School where students learn to use their voice to contribute solutions to the challenges of our global community. As a financial aid recipient this mission is expected for students and their families attending Renton Prep.
Likewise, the vision of Renton Prep Christian School is to inspire a passion for harnessing emerging technology for teaching, learning, critical thinking, and sharing the hope of becoming responsible and productive citizens, whose legacy will leave the world a better place. As a financial aid recipient this mission is expected for students and their families attending Renton Prep.
Lastly, the action of Renton Prep Christian School is to provide a well rounded; technology enabled Christian education. As a financial aid recipient this mission is expected for students and their families attending Renton Prep.
If the mission, vision, and action (listed above) are not followed, financial aid can be repealed. A student or family cannot disrupt the educational process (when receiving financial aid). The decision will be made by the leadership team if the family is no longer eligible for financial aid. An email will be sent stating the repeal and when the repeal will take place. An appeal can be made, but it is still up to the decision of the leadership team to decide if financial aid will be reinstated.
How do we apply for financial aid? Is there a process in place?
Requests for financial aid are considered only after a student has received a letter of acceptance from our school, signed up for evergreen enrollment, and completed the SSS online financial aid application.

Is financial aid available to international students?
No. At this time financial aid is not available to international students.
Can we lose financial aid due to low grades?
Yes. Anything that does not align with the mission, vision, and action of our schools can warrant a repeal of financial aid. However, grades that are suffering does not always constitute a repeal. Likewise, a student receiving financial aid that is earning excellent marks, but is not behaving in class could also warrant a repeal from the leadership team.
Is there a limited amount of financial aid available?
Yes, Renton Prep has a limited budget for financial aid. At the start of each school year, financial aid requests are gathered through SSS. Make certain to start this process as soon as possible.

Are there any full ride scholarships or financial aid available?
No. Families are expected to pay tuition.
Do we have to apply each year?
Yes, families must apply for financial aid each year. Due to the limited resources each year the allocation varies, so a financial aid award one year is not guaranteed and may differ the following year based on need, merit, and availability of funds.
If we are not granted financial aid, can we re-apply the following year if our financial situation changes?
Yes, as a family’s financial status can change from year-to-year, this can also alter a subsequent year’s allotment of financial aid.
