CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper Christian School opened their doors September first, and has already seen incredible growth with 230 partners investing in the success. Being a private school, CCS decided to create a tuition-assisting program, the Mountaineer Fund, to help perspective students fund their education.

“At the first part of the school year, we did not have money in that fund. It was very little and to date, we have received about 50 thousand dollars in gifts that will allow families to take advantage of that program,” said Deanna Cotten, the outreach coordinator for Casper Christian School.

With open enrollment, Casper Christian School continues to grow. They currently serve 36 students and counting. The Mountaineer Fund has blessed six recipients, and they say this has helped their education tremendously.

“One family reports that it was an eleventh hour miracle for their family. When that gift came in and their students were able to come, it was a tremendous blessing to them and gave them an opportunity to enroll for this school year,” said Cotten.

The Mountaineer Fund is a need-based program. Students can qualify to receive up to fifty perce4nt off their tuition. Cotten says the community support behind this program has been inspiring, and she has enjoyed watching this school grow.

“The students are the heartbeat of this organization. The students are the heartbeat of Casper Christian School, and without students, we don’t have a school. The Mountaineer Fund is one of the best ways for families to consider enrollment and give their students the opportunity for a Christian education,” said Cotten.

Casper Christian School hopes to raise 100,000 dollars by the end of the year to help make this opportunity available for more students.
