Portland Christian Schools offers several merit-based scholarships for new and continuing students. Thanks to the generosity of the Oregon Community Foundation - Joseph E. Weston Foundation, we are also able to offer needs-based scholarships for students entering the sixth and seventh grades. Families desiring to apply for needs-based financial aid for students in any grade, please visit the Tuition and Financial Aid page for the program of interest.
