Sponsor a Student

For the past 70 years, Sunnyside Christian School has been providing a Christ-centered, Bible-based, quality education for distinctly Christian living. This long-standing Christian education has benefited thousands of Lower Yakima Valley students, and we are excited for our future.

Sunnyside Christian staff has always been frugal, keeping to tight budgets and seeing significantly lower paychecks than the city school teachers. Each of our teachers feel called to provide this Christ-centered education, and they are our greatest assets. 

Despite tight budgets and low overhead, tuition continues to rise at Sunnyside Christian. Some of the reasons for our tuition growth are health insurance costs and a failing CSI pension plan, both of which have added thousands of dollars to our yearly budget.

We find that our tuition costs frequently exceed what families are able to pay.

We find that families will not even apply to the school, knowing that our tuition is not feasible.

We find ourselves borrowing money against the next year to make tuition assistance dollars meet our current demands.

We know that God has sustained Sunnyside Christian School in our community for over 70 years because we are doing His work.

We know that there are supporters in this community and all over the United States who would respond to the need of a family desiring a Christian education.

Using the "Sponsor a Student" program, which has been set up by the Sunnyside Christian School Board of Directors, we now have nearly 20 donors who directly support tuition assistance of 20 students. 

The average tuition assistance need for one student is $115/month for 12 months, or $1,380/year. 

With a goal of $30,000 for the 2019-2020 school year, we need:
- 22 donors to donate $1,380
- 44 donors to donate $690 (half the cost)
87 donors to donate $345 (1/4 the cost)

If you cannot meet any of these amounts, please donate what you can. Together, we can make a big impact in the lives of families who desire a Christian education in the Lower Yakima Valley!

Thank you.
