Understanding the financial hurdles many families face, Life Quest Girls Academy is here to help those who qualify for financial assistance through our in house scholarship program.

We offer an exclusive scholarship program to support your commitment to your daughter's future. Eligible families can receive up to $12,000 per year to offset the tuition, making this transformative opportunity more accessible for your daughter in need of our specialized educational environment.

The awarding of any amount of a Life Quest scholarship is based on three criteria:

#1: Student acceptance into Life Quest Girls Academy

#2: Gross annual income

#3: Situational hardship letter

All Life Quest scholarships are re-evaluated quarterly to determine if the recipient is still deemed eligible to continue to receive the financial benefits of the awarded scholarship. These evaluations allow the Executive Director to determine if the scholarship recipient is adequately following the Life Quest Girls Academy Code of Conduct and is therefore still eligible or not to receive the benefits of the awarded scholarship. If awarded a Life Quest scholarship, please discuss with your daughter the importance of following the Code of Conduct as to not put her scholarship at risk.

Sometimes, the immediate family might not be the only ones who recognize the importance, and the need of having your daughter placed into an out of home safe and structured educational environment.

Securing a second job has become a practical and viable strategy for many parents striving to fund their child's out of home education, particularly when considering the substantial investment of a boarding school.

Sharing the load and subsidizing tuition costs through church assistance can allow families to make Life Quest Girls Academy a viable option for their daughter.
