Our goal is to provide an exceptional Christian education at Meadow Glade Adventist Elementary School. Our operating budget is based on the support of three primary sources: The Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, 11 constituent (local) churches, and annual tuition fees.
A variety of sources of financial aid are available for families who qualify. To receive financial aid, families must apply through the FACTS program, a third-party tool used for financial evaluation to determine eligibility. Members of constituent churches may also apply for church subsidies. These subsidies are awarded at each church’s discretion, and may be based on factors such as attendance, grades, or timely tuition payments. Contact your church pastor or educational representative for details. Non-constituent churches, including those other than SDA, may also offer financial aid opportunities. We encourage you to inquire.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment
All scholarships and grants are based on eligibility and the student(s) or family meeting the requirements/criteria of the Worthy Student Committee, or the granting institution directing the scholarship and/or grant.

We request FACTS Assessments be completed by June 1st for the following school year. The later the submission, the less aid we will have available.
Local Church Student Aid
Some churches provide tuition assistance to eligible families. Contact your church office directly to see if your family is eligible for student aid. Community members, your church may also offer financial assistance opportunities, we encourage you to inquire.
Every Child Deserves To Know Christ Grant (ECDTKC)
The Oregon Conference of Seventh-day Adventists is pleased to provide an educational grant for all incoming Kindergarten, First Grade and Ninth Grade students. The Every Child Deserves To Know Christ grant program is designed to assist families who may struggle to meet the costs of tuition in Christian Education. Currently constituent churches work with the school to provide Worthy Student Scholarships to students who qualify. This grant is intended to fill the gap between WSS and what the family is unable to pay.
Student must be registered for Kindergarten or First Grade at the time of application. The application process requires families to submit an application to FACTS, a third-party vendor, which supplies the school with an independent analysis and assessment of an applicants ability to pay tuition.
NPUC Hispanic Student Scholarship:
The North Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists offers a scholarship for families of Hispanic/Latino origin, who may not be able to enroll their child due to financial constraints. This scholarship may be renewed, and application(s) must be received by the school prior to the academic year beginning.
- The student must have the financial backing of their local church and school with appropriate certification as described on the application.
- The student must be currently enrolled at the school listed on the application.
- The application must be received from the school listed on the application.
Partnering for Eternity:
The PFE Program makes Christian education more affordable by offering scholarships to students when they visit individually matched mentors. Schools play a key role in facilitating the positive inter-generational friendships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Students bring joy to the lives of mentors through visiting, reading, and playing games. When appropriate, they may also perform light housework and yard work. As young people build generational bridges and learn the value of service, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of their mentors. In the process, their time together helps finance the student’s Christian education.
MGAES Worthy Student Assistance
Our worthy student fund is supported by alumni, friends of MGAES and our School Board who feel strongly about our school, it’s mission, and the children we serve. The factors that are used to determine how much financial aid to offer include, but are not limited to, date of the FACTS application, FACTS financial analysis, additional comments on the application, and the total amount of worthy student aid that is available to award.
Families have three payment options:
- 10-month payment plan. (Ten-month plans are billed from August – May)
- 12-month payment plan. (Twelve month plans are billed from August – July)
- Pay in full (3% discount when payment is made by the end of the first week of school)
Tuition payments on either the 10 or the 12 month payment plan must be made by Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) or credit card unless special arrangements are made with the business office and approved by the finance committee. Families who are granted financial aid are required to be on the 12-month plan.
