Financial Aid

Financial aid is typically available to families who otherwise may not be able to attend LCS due to financial constraints. This assistance is based on financial need and does not cover 100 percent of tuition costs. LCS participates in the Step Up For Students scholarship program, the Gardiner Program and the McKay Scholarship program. If you qualify for and/or are awarded financial assistance through one of these three programs, these resources must be accessed prior to applying for financial aid through LCS.

New families must first complete the online application process for school admissions and will then receive a link to FACTS, a third-party service that processes the financial/income information necessary in awarding financial aid.

To find out the required documents to be submitted for the financial aid application, please call the Business Office at (863) 688-2771.
