Family Referral

CLS values its families.  We are happy that you love our school enough to share the CLS opportunity with others.  Thank you for your support! Click Here for the Family referral credit form.

Tuition Assistance

CLS offers assistance to families who demonstrate a financial need. Families can apply for tuition assistance through FACTS.

BOOST Scholarships

The application for BOOST scholarships is now available. Applying for a BOOST scholarship is separate from applying for financial aid through CLS. BOOST funds are administered and awarded by the State.
This is the link to the application and more information: http://marylandpublicschools.org/Pages/boost/index.aspx.
The deadline for families to submit the BOOST scholarship application is April 29, 2022 at 11:59 pm. Applicants must submit two types of documents with their application to be considered for a scholarship award:

  1. 2021 Federal Income tax return – (all pages of tax return including schedules)
  2. Documentation from a participating nonpublic school that the student is enrolled or has applied for admission to the school.

Both required documents must be in pdf file format and uploaded to the BOOST online application.

We can provide with you with an enrollment (or new student application) letter to satisfy the second requirement. If you are applying for BOOST and need that letter, please reach out to Mrs. Morrison at [email protected] to request this document.

We hope many of you are able to take advantage of this opportunity to partially fund your child’s CLS education.

FACTS Tuition Management

Carroll Lutheran School uses FACTS Tuition Management (https://factsmgt.com/services/tuition-management) to collect each family’s tuition and other fees. FACTS Management is the nation’s leading tuition payment plan provider for private and faith based schools.

CLS is thankful to receive funding from the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) to purchase textbooks and other classroom items.  Because these items are paid for through a MSDE grant, the tuition charged to you is reduced by that amount. In school year 22-23 CLS received $7,540 from MSDE.
