What is Work Study?

 

We have different gifts, according to the grace given us…Romans 12:6

Aurora Christian School implements a Work Study program for families receiving awards from our Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). This program allows ACS to offset operational costs while continuing to meet the growing demand for tuition assistance of those in need. All TAP recipients will be asked to “give back” by committing time and talents in various areas throughout the school. Our desire is to meet the family financial need and create a community environment of working together to accomplish the ministry of ACS. TAP recipients are responsible for serving 30 hours/semester.
