This scholarship has been established to honor the late Mrs. Elizabeth M. Irby and to provide a Christcentered, excellent education to students who, without the scholarship, would not have the opportunity for such an education. Financial eligibility is established through the application process to Christ Covenant School and to FACTS, an outside sourcing group verifying financial need. Families who display the ability to pay half tuition or more are not eligible for The Elizabeth M. Irby Scholarship but may be considered through the school’s regular application and tuition assistance process. The FACTS application fee of $30 is paid by each family applying.
The Elizabeth M. Irby Scholarship covers the following fees: Application, Contract, Supply, and Technology, as well as up to 100% tuition. Not included are $30 FACTS application Fee, any extra curricular activities or sports fees, lunches, transportation, any selected school trip costs, any additional school supplies, uniforms, and other incidental/optional costs. Recipients of this scholarship and any tuition assistance at CCS are invited to shop for free in our uniform closet to see if any of their uniform needs can be met before purchases are made. CCS also hosts a used uniform sale at the end of the year, which allows for the sale and purchase of uniforms at half price. (Note: should a student not be financially eligible for The Elizabeth M. Irby Scholarship and wish to go through the regular admission and/or tuition assistance process, the regular fee schedule should be consulted.)
Requirements for admission to CCS include: at least one parent must profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and be able to give testimony to such; at least one parent must be a member in good standing of a local church and provide a pastoral letter of reference; at least one parent must be in agreement with our Statement of Faith; the student’s academic success and behavioral good standing from the former school(s) must be evident; admission testing must indicate potential success in our academic environment.
To qualify for The Elizabeth M. Irby Scholarship in subsequent years, the student must maintain a B average overall with no D’s or F’s on the final report card. The student and the family must abide by policies and procedures, display success at Christ Covenant School, and remain financially eligible through FACTS application process (repeated annually).
It is a great pleasure to partner with the Elizabeth M. Irby Foundation to make this opportunity available in our community. We look forward to the blessings of an excellent, Christ-centered education for the recipients and their families.
