Continuous Enrollment is utilized to allow current students priority enrollment to secure their spot in their classroom for the following school year. When students are continuously enrolled, from their initial enrollment until they graduate from Tacoma Christian Academy, the continuous enrollment lets us maximize our resources to provide Christian education to our families at the highest level of excellence.
The continuous enrollment payment is a down payment for each student for the following school year. This payment is collected in order to assist the TCA administration in planning for staffing and curriculum for the following school year and to secure each student’s spot for the following year.
The Continuous Enrollment down payment invoice will be emailed to the family each year in the first week of February.
For the families that are paying tuition as monthly ACH, the $225 deposit will be split into three payments of $75 per month per child (February, March, April) and auto-drawn from their bank account along with monthly tuition payments. For families that pay tuition quarter, semester, or annually they can either pay in a lump sum or split it into three payments as well and pay online or in person.
$225 per student
Each students’ Continuous Enrollment (down payment on the next school year’s Annual Fee) invoice will be emailed the first week in February. For the families that are paying tuition as monthly ACH the $225 deposit will be split into three payments of $75 per month per child (February, March, April) and auto-drawn from their bank account along with monthly tuition payments. For the families that pay tuition quarter, semester or annually, they can either pay in a lump sum or split it into three payments as well and pay online or in person.
If you are not sure if your student(s) will be returning to TCA next year, you may contact the TCA accountant to postpone your Continuous Enrollment payment date.
If you choose to postpone your Continuous Enrollment payment and determine that your student will not be returning to TCA, you are still responsible for contacting the TCA office.
Please note that if your Continuous Enrollment payment is not paid by February 20th, your student will not be placed on a class list, and, depending on availability, may lose their space in that class.
(Please note that in order to receive a Tuition Assistance award letter by email, you must pay at least 1/3 of your Continuous Enrollment Down Payment.)
No refunds of the Continuous Enrollment payment will be given, except for:
For those reasons only, the CE payment will be refunded, minus a $25 administrative fee, once the family has notified the TCA office that they are not going to be returning.
All accounts must be current in order to keep your continuous enrollment status active. Please email email@example.com or call 253-572-1742 if you did not receive an invoice for your student’s Continuous Enrollment Down Payment.
Please contact the TCA accountant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since Continuous Enrollment does not have an application fee, the family will need to pay an amount equivalent to the application fee the family would normally pay (i.e. 1 student/$125, 2 students/$250, 3+ students/$300) and notify the office of your plans to apply for tuition assistance and/or to work off the Annual Fee.
When a completed Tuition Assistance application and supporting documents are submitted and verified before April 20th, the student’s enrollment becomes contingent upon the acceptance of Tuition Assistance. Tuition Assistance will only be awarded when accounts are current. If the Tuition Assistance award does not work for the family, continuous enrollment payments are refundable, less $25, only if the tuition assistance application is complete and the deadline has been met.
Currently enrolled families may apply for Tuition Assistance anytime after January 1st. The application must be completed and verified by FACTS Grant and Aid by the April 20th deadline.
Tuition Assistance award letters are sent to current families after the first Continuous Enrollment payment installment is paid in February.
Tuition Assistance application fees are paid directly to FACTS Grant and Aid, a third-party company, and are non-refundable.
Complete the online application process once enrollment opens up for siblings. Submit the application within a week of sibling enrollment opening.
Notify the TCA office of your decision.
