Tuition and Fees

 

Schedule of Tuition and Fees For the 2019-2020 School Year

Fees

New Student Application Fee: First-time applicants pay a $150 non-refundable application fee per student, which increases to $300 if applying after June 1.

Enrollment & Re-Enrollment Fee: First-year students are not charged an enrollment fee.  Current GA families with returning students will pay one re-enrollment fee per family each year.  The re-enrollment fee schedule is as follows:

Early Enrollment February 15 – March 15 $75
Regular Enrollment March 16 – May 1 $150
Late Enrollment After May 1 $300

 

A non-refundable deposit of 10% of total annual tuition for each student is also due at enrollment or re-enrollment.

Books: Student and parent books are purchased by parents from a required book list. These books may be purchased new or used, and those that are not consumable may be resold to other students.

Field Trips:  Students in grades 3-8 attend an out-of-town field trip during the school year. Total cost of these field trips is usually around $300 per student.  There are various other field trips throughout the year for all grades and parents will need to pay the costs for admission, gas, meals, and other costs.

Class Fee: Art and science classes may have a supply fee.

End-of-Year Testing: The fee for end-of-year testing is covered in tuition. Students needing individualized testing will be referred to our independent test administrator, as we are not able to accommodate them.

Tuition

Because Grace Academy begins to incur expenses well in advance of the school year for teacher training, classroom books and resources, and supplies, etc., tuition is collected beginning in June to fund those expenses. The enrollment deposit is due prior to that time as teachers’ needs are finalized at the end of the current school year based on projected enrollment.

A non-refundable deposit of 10% of total annual tuition is due at enrollment or re-enrollment. The balance of annual tuition is due in full by June 1 or it may be paid monthly for nine months beginning June 1 and ending February 15.

When you register for classes at Grace Academy, you are registering for a full academic year and are making a financial commitment to pay tuition for the full year. After June 1, if you decide to withdraw your child from Grace Academy and written notice is received by Grace Academy by September 30, you will be relieved of one half of your tuition obligation for the full year. The balance due may be paid all at once when your child is withdrawn or it may be paid monthly in accordance with the normal tuition payment plan.

Parents will sign a Financial Agreement at enrollment stating their understanding and agreement to these terms.

Note:  Children whose tuition is not current by the end of the month may be suspended from class until the tuition is made current. Schoolwork missed during tuition payment suspensions will not be allowed to be made up, nor will requested records be released.
