Applying for Financial Assistance 

To qualify for financial assistance, please submit a completed application which included the following:

  • Completed Financial Assistance application that can be found on our Forms page.
  • 2017 Tax Return and W2’s mailed or faxed to CFA.

Financial assistance is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Funds are limited. Returning families must submit new financial assistance applications each year in order to receive an award. Families must be current and paid up on tuition and fees in order to be eligible for any type of financial assistance. 

Tuition Discount and Payment Programs 

Cross Factor also offers various types of discount programs and payment arrangements to help make costs more reasonable for families. For 2017-2018, Cross Factor will partner with SMART Tuition and Simplegive to collect tuition payments. All families, regardless of the payment plan, will be required to enroll. This will allow families more flexibility with their payments and provide more up-to-date and accurate accounting of all tuition payments and balances. Only one discount can be applied against the base rate (outside of the Deposit Discount and the Family Referral Program) in any given year. Financial Assistance and Tuition Discounts are assessed separately. 

  • Deposit Discount · (Returning Families Only) Families who submit their re-enrollment forms and deposits by June 1 will receive the 2016-2017 tuition rate.  
  • Pay In Full Discount · Families receive 7% off the base rate of tuition if the tuition and all fees are paid prior to July 1. · Families receive 5% off the base rate of tuition if the tuition and all fees are paid prior to August 1. · Families may also elect to pay their tuition in full in 2 installments: ½ Aug. 1 and ½ Dec. 1. This plan DOES NOT include a discount off of the base rate, but the family will not be charged the monthly 6% finance charge. 
  • Monthly Payment Plan · Families can pay over 10 months – starting Aug. 1 and ending May 1. · Families can pay over 12 months – starting June 1 and ending May 1. · A 6% service charge is added to the total cost for those families paying monthly.     
  • Family Referral Program Current CFA families are eligible for a $300 tuition reduction for every new family they recruit that ultimately enrolls at CFA. The criteria are as follows: The new family must sign a verification form identifying the family that referred them.  Tuition reductions are given after the referred family has been enrolled for 3 months. 
  • Summer Enrichment Program Cross Factor is excited to offer its Summer Enrichment Program for 2017 located at 670 Washington Street in Dorchester. It is a 7-week program offering academic enrichment, social development, and fun learning activities and exploration, with an emphasis on STEM education.  Families enrolled in the Summer Enrichment Program have the option to combine their summer costs and 2017-2018 Tuition Costs and pay over a period of 12 months. The first monthly payment must begin June 1
  • Voucher Program · Cross Factor currently accepts vouchers for eligible families. (It will be listed under Parkside Christian Academy.) Please contact your local agency for more information about obtaining a voucher for your child. Voucher families must submit re-enrollment forms and applications, but not deposits. Your space will not be reserved until the voucher form is received.
