The BC Government budgets a per-student cost for public education. Independent schools, like Centennial Christian, receive half this amount per student as a grant. The remaining cost to educate a child must be made up through tuition. Thus tuition is spent on direct educational costs such as teachers’ salaries, school supplies and utility bills. Tuition is adjusted every year and a family rate changes your costs per-child enrolled at CCS (with the exception of our preschool program).
Scholarships for New Students
The Board of Centennial Christian School offers two annual scholarships for new families to CCS, one for a new student entering grades 7-9 and one for a new student entering grades 10-12. The scholarships are both in the amount of $1,000 and will be applied as a credit towards tuition at CCS. The Board seeks to encourage students in community service, academic achievement, fine arts and athletic involvement in ways that reflect the vision of CCS and the Christian community at large.
To apply, download the application form and fill it in as thoroughly as possible. You may add supporting documents. The deadline for application is August 31, 2021.

We offer a limited amount of bursaries each year to full members of the Terrace Calvin Christian School Society who show evidence of financial need and who commit to volunteering at the school. The bursary system is not intended as a long term solution, but rather to help families with the cost of tuition during times of a personal financial crisis. The maximum tuition assistance to be offered by the school is 50% of annual tuition and a bursary expires at the end of the school year. Applications (including a current Notice of Assessment) are submitted to the Finance Committee and are administered with the strictest level of confidentiality.
The Finance Committee may consider a reduced tuition (up to 50% off) for any family with another child (or children) in another Christian School, including the Catholic School.
