Tuition Assistance
Abington Christian Academy serves a diverse student body with a large number of middle- to low-income families and children who are at academic risk. Even families who receive some state subsidies make a tremendous sacrifice to contribute to the balance of their tuition.

We are committed to admitting students and providing them with a high-quality, caring education without regard to family income. Business donations from the EITC program help to make this possible.

Parents may apply for and receive scholarship funding from a variety of sources:
 
ABINGTON CHRISTIAN ACADEMY SCHOLARSHIPS
Funding for this scholarship comes from private donors and the ACA school board. Parents may request an ACA Scholarship from the Business Manager at any time during the school year. Eligibility is determined by financial need and other factors.

EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT TAX CREDIT (EITC) PROGRAM SCHOLARSHIPS
Enacted in 2001, the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program amended the public school code. Act 4 authorized the award of tax credits to businesses that make contributions of up to $200,000 to scholarship organizations. These scholarship organizations then designate funds as tuition assistance to qualified recipient schools like Abington Christian Academy. Scholarship funds are available for PreK through grade 8.

A variety of scholarship organizations offer EITC-funded tuition assistance to ACA families. Families are responsible to contact these organizations for scholarship requests.
