Tuition is due the 1st of each month beginning June 1 and is paid over 10 months in equal payments. Tuition is billed electronically and can be paid online.
See our Admissions Process for information on how to get enrolled.
Your payment can be made online from the invoice we email to you, or you can make your payment at the school office at the beginning of each month. You will be provided a receipt
for payment and recorded in the monthly student register.
Seats in classrooms shall only be guaranteed for students with paid balances. Consequently, once a seat becomes available
(first school day following the 10th of the month), students on class waiting lists will be allowed to secure available seats
upon receipt of appropriate tuition payments at the discretion of the school. (Temporary admission waivers for student’s
associated with past due tuition accounts may be granted for special situations if requested with advanced notice at the sole
discretion of the school.)
In order to get on the same payment schedule of other families, those enrolling students mid-semester shall be required to
pay 2 months tuition (Catch-up Payments) upon acceptance plus a pro-rated monthly tuition payment for the month of enrollment
based on the number of remaining school days in the month. Any application to enroll in school after the last semester has started
will be considered on an exception basis only at the discretion of the school.
Summit Christian Academy makes budgetary decisions based upon families sincere commitments to enroll their child in school at the
start of the Fall Semester and relies upon anticipated revenues.
If a student or family withdraws anytime prior to the end of the school year, it causes a hardship on the school. Therefore,
a moderate Early Withdrawal Fee of two-months (20%) tuition will be assessed when families withdraw before the end of the school year.
This fee will help cover the cost of running the school in their absence. If a student withdraws after July 1st and prior to the
beginning of the school year, the same penalty applies, and should another student fill the abandoned education slot, associated
deposits from the withdrawing family will be added to the General Scholarship Fund.
Early Withdrawal Fee Exceptions include early withdrawals due to:
- the death of an immediate family member,
- a severe disability or medical necessity suffered by the student,
- company transfers required to maintain one's employment or
- relocation because of loss of employment.
A letter documenting such a required move will be sufficient proof to waive the fee. Other hardship situations,
such as major financial problems must be appealed to the School Board.
