Our Re-Enrollment Period for returning students is February 1 to February 28. Students may be re-enrolled only if their tuition account is paid in full for the current school year. Re-enrolling students are given priority during the Re-Enrollment Period after which time all Applications for Enrollment or Re-Enrollment will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. The Enrollment Deposit, as shown below, must accompany the Application for Re-Enrollment.
Open Enrollment has been extended to July 15, 2017. Please contact the Admissions Office at 768-6222 to start the application process.

The Application Fee, as shown below, must accompany the Application for Enrollment. The Enrollment Deposit, as shown below, is payable upon notice of acceptance.
“Every family will only pay what they can afford.” Cornerstone Christian Academy employs a cost-based, need-blind model for tuition and admission. The vast majority of our families apply for and receive financial aid (see our Financial Aid page) each year. Their family’s total tuition is based on their FACTS financial aid report. You may contact the Admissions Office at 768-6222 to inquire about cost-based tuition rates for the 2017-2018 school year. But, remember, “Every family will only pay what they can afford.”

All responsible parties will be required to sign a Financial Agreement at the beginning of each school year or at the beginning of a mid-year enrollment. This is necessary to ensure the mutual understanding and commitment of all parties in this matter.
When a student enrolls after the start of the school year, tuition will be charged for each month the student is registered (regardless of the number of days in attendance the first month) on the basis of one-tenth (1/10) of the annual tuition. The first payment will cover one month and is due before the student begins attending classes.
Any enrollment after the first day of school may be charged a fee for additional curriculum and/or supplies, as necessary.
Monthly tuition payments are deemed late if not received by the 1st of each month and may be assessed a $10.00 late fee. If an account becomes two months past due, and there has been no communication from parent(s) regarding intended payment, the parent(s) will be required to meet with a representative appointed by the Finance Committee at which time a payment plan will be developed, agreed upon, and signed by all parties. This agreed upon plan may require Board of Director approval in order for the affected students to continue attending CCA. Should the meeting not take place or the payment plan not be met as agreed upon and approved by the Board of Directors, the student(s) may be dismissed from school and might not be permitted to return to CCA for the remainder of the school year unless payment is made.
Parents will be expected to notify the school office of any financial emergency causing a late payment for a particular month and to communicate when payment may be expected.
Tuition accounts must be paid in full for the current school year by June 1, unless prior arrangements have been made. Should an account be two months or more past due on June 1, a reminder letter will be sent to parent(s). If no payment is made by June 15, a representative appointed by the Finance Committee will contact the parent(s) by phone. If the account is not paid in full by July 1, re-enrollment for the coming school year may be denied until all past due payments are paid in full.
