2012-2013 Registration Fees
The registration fee is paid annually for each student and is non refundable. The registration fee includes, but is not linited to, items such as books, achievement testing, and consumable materials. The registration fee also ensures your child’s placement for the 2012-2013 school year. It should be noted that the fee is not purchasing the above items but helping defray the cost and if a student withdraws, these materials remain the property of FPCA.
*The class must be full in order to open.
Schedule Re-enrollment deadline is January 24, 2012. The Re-enrollment application, the financial contract and the first installment or the full payment of the registration fee MUST be paid by January 24, 2012 for your child to be re-enrolled for the 2012-2013 school year. If you choose the registration 3-payment option, the second payment is due by February 15th and the final payment is due by March 15th. Any current student who has not paid registration in full by March 15th will lose their slot at FPCA for the 2012-2013 school year and will need to reapply if they choose to enroll later, to include application fees.
2012-2013 Annual Sustaining Fee
$475.00 Fee per Family
Annual Sustaining Fee
Tuition payments cover approximately 80% of the cost to educate a student at First Presbyterian Christian Academy. The remaining 20% is generated from donations and fundraising activities including gifts given through the sustaining fee by each family. The school may give each family the ability to offset their sustaining fee by participating in school designated fundraisers. The family’s portion of the sustaining fee could be reduced by the amount each family generates through these fundraisers. The Annual Sustaining Fee may be broken down into two payment options, $237.50 due by October 1, 2012 and $237.50 due by April 1, 2013 or the fee may be added to your monthly tuition. Credits will be awarded for fundraising on your monthly bill by completing a Fundraising Credit Form.
Multi - Student Discount
Discounts are allowed on tuition for families with three or more children enrolled at FPCA. Families enrolling three or more children receive a 25% discount after paying the full tuition for the two oldest children. The discount will apply to the youngest child(ren) enrolled at FPCA.
It is inferred, upon enrollment, that a family is choosing to enroll their student for the entire year and FPCA budgets are set accordingly. If you withdraw your child before the end of the year, a 30 day advanced written notice is required. The remaining month’s tuition following the student’s last day of school, plus the next two month’s tuition will be assessed as a withdrawal fee. Report cards and/or transcripts are released to parents or other schools only when the student’s account is paid up to date. There is a military clause in the financial contract. Accounts of withdrawn students must be brought current. Accounts left outstanding will be turned over to a collection agency.
Past Due Accounts
Tuition may be paid through ACH in two options. You may pay on the 1st of each month or choose to pay in two equal payments on the 1st and 15th of each month. If you choose to make two payments, you will be assessed a $10.00 administrative fee each month. A $35.00 late fee charge will be added to all delinquent accounts. On the 5th or 16th of each month (depending on the option chosen), those account that are not current will be notified that they must pay their accounts immediately. Students with delinquent accounts will not be allowed to continue attending FPCA. Any student withdrawn from FPCA due to delinquent accounts must still bring their account current. Accounts left outstanding will be turned over to a collection agency. *Any student withdrawn from FPCA due to delinquent account status is still considered a "withdrawn" student and will fall under the withdrawal policy obligations.
First Presbyterian Christian Academy admits students regardless of race, color, socioeconomic factors, national or ethnic origin. FPCA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, socioeconomic facts, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, scholarship programs, athletic and other school administered programs. FPCA reserves the right to refuse admittance to any family it believes may cause disruption to the community spirit that exists among the families currently involved in the school.
