Tuition & Financial Aid
Concordia's Scholarship Fund
Concordia Christian Day School has been blessed with generous gifts by individuals who saw the need to help families afford tuition. It is our philosophy that every family will be able to send their children to our school, and finances will not be a hindrance. That’s why we have one of the most robust needs-based scholarship programs in our area. The Scholarship Program is used to assist families who demonstrate a financial need through our application process.
Concordia uses an online application process for our Scholarship Program. For over 40 years, TADS has developed a first-rate financial aid evaluation product. Their comprehensive system is designed to be efficient and easy to use. Be assured that TADS is a very reputable and secure company. This provides the scholarship committee an accurate auditing of families’ applications to show a real financial picture. All families wishing to apply for Concordia’s Scholarship Program must apply online through TADS. There is a application fee per family. Once the application has been completed, TADS will notify the school.
TADS Online Application Process:
- Visit TADS.com website, and select “Family LOG IN” at the top of the page. Click on the purple Financial Aid Assessment “Click to Log In." Select “Create a New Account” button and set up your account for the application.
- Next you will select from a drop down for state, city, and school. You will then acknowledge that you are applying for the selected school year. This will start the application process. If you have any questions refer to “Need Help?" Tab along the right. The school does not have access to your information.
- Once the application has been fully completed and the application fee has been paid, TADS will notify the school. The Scholarship Committee will review your application and notify you of the final outcome. Any further concerns should be discussed with the principal.

What Parents Are Saying
My Concordia Story
My daughter, Danielle, started Concordia in the third grade before the building was built that exists today. She had been in public school before, and the difference was overwhelming.
