Tuition is one of the main sources of income for Sanborn Christian School that allows us to function well.  On some occasions, some families seek assistance in tuition through the following tuition scholarship opportunities:

  • NICSTO (Northwest Iowa Christian Schools Tuition Organization) for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
  • Preschool Tuition Assistance for students in our Praising Paws Preschool.
  • ESA (Education Savings Accounts) were part of the Students First Act which was introduced by the Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds and signed into law on Jan. 24, 2023.  This made state funding available to support the success of every K-12 student in Iowa. The bill establishes a framework and funding for education savings accounts (ESAs), which may be used by eligible families to cover tuition, fees, and other qualified education expenses at accredited nonpublic schools in Iowa.


Another area in which financial assistance can be given is for hot lunch.  Sanborn Christian is equipped with a full kitchen and kitchen staff, along with a cafeteria in which our students and staff may eat.  Sanborn Christian is not part of the government free and reduced lunch program, but we are able to help reduce the costs of lunches for families who would financially qualify.
