Abundant Life Christian School works hard to balance the goal of making tuition as affordable as possible with the responsibility to operate the school on sound financial principles. 

Tuition covers about 75-80% of the actual cost of educating each student.  The remaining 20-25% of expenses must be secured each year from other sources.

The purpose of the ALCS Development program is to build the long-term financial strength and stability from sources above and beyond tuition.  Accountability is maintained through the Madison Christian Schools' School Board and through an annual financial audit by an outside CPA firm.  Our programs are outlined below


Annual Fund:

“Blessed to Be a Blessing” Annual Fund gifts are the primary means of covering the shortfall between tuition/fees and the cost of educating each student. We believe in financial responsibility and in paying our own bills, including tuition for services rendered by the school. We also realize that at times some families find themselves in significant financial straits and unable to afford the full cost of tuition. It is the desire of ALCS that all who want a Christian education be able to obtain it. For this reason scholarship funding and compensating our staff fairly have been identified as two of the top priorities for our “Blessed to Be a Blessing” Annual Fund. Every ALCS family is asked to share in the responsibility of providing annual fund support. Families who can contribute at a higher level are encouraged to do so. All unrestricted gifts to the “Blessed to Be a Blessing” annual fund are fully tax-deductible.

Financial Aid/Scholarships:

The ALCS Scholarship/Financial Aid Fund has been established to assist families who need help in paying tuition. These funds are given by donors with the intent of helping families with verifiable financial needs.

Serve-A-Thon:

Serve-A-Thon is designed to help us raise funds for our school while at the same time giving our students an educational experience consistent with the mission of ALCS. ALCS 6th - 12th grade students are asked to volunteer an 8-hour day of service to others and to seek pledges for each hour they work. Work teams accompanied by an adult driver and team leader perform acts of service such as window washing or raking leaves.

amazing grace race:

The amazing grace race has a two-fold purpose: to have healthy fun while raising funds for our school! Elementary students, Kindergarten -5th grade, are asked to join the fun and raise funds to support them as they run our amazing grace race. Students run for 1 hour and seek donations to support their efforts. Family and friends are invited to join us for the race.

Designated Donations:

Cash gifts designated for specific needs are possible for most ALCS departments. Designated gift lists are available through the ALCS Business Office.

SCRIP:

Scrip is simply gift cards/certificates purchased through ALCS at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU! 70% of your Scrip profits will be used to pay tuition and fees or directed to benefit another family of your choice. The “Gas & Groceries/Cash & Carry” program is easy to use. Friends and relatives’ Scrip purchases can also be credited to your account.

ALCS Foundation - Planned Gift:

Wise use of planned gifts can save thousands of dollars in estate and income taxes. The ALCS Foundation's Planned Giving Program assists donors in making gifts of stock, insurance, or other appreciated assets.
