A Simple Process Year After Year
ontinuous enrollment is our chosen solution to simplify the annual admissions process for returning families. We’ve streamlined the process by eliminating time consuming forms, applications, and other complicated paperwork in order to provide a hassle-free and highly favored approach to signing up for CHA year after year.
What is Continuous Enrollment?
Continuous Enrollment (CE) is a new program that enables students to remain continuously enrolled at Christian Heritage Academy from their initial admission until they graduate. CE eliminates the yearly application for re-enrollment by automatically re-enrolling your child(ren) for the next year. With almost all of our students returning each year, CE simplifies the process for everyone.
Why is Continuous Enrollment Important to CHA?
Accurate planning is fundamental to ensuring that we’re prepared to fulfill our mission excellently every year. With our new CE program, our school leadership team can began to make plans for staffing, programs, materials, curriculum and facility usage as early as March 1st of each year. We take the stewardship of tuition dollars entrusted to us every year very seriously. We want to invest these tuition dollars wisely so that we can provide the best education possible for our students.
What is the Continuous Enrollment payment?
A non-refundable, $200 CE fee will be assessed per family on March 1st each year to secure your child(ren)’s seat for the upcoming school year. The CE payment deadline is March 31st. If payment is not received by March 31, a student remains in an “open status” and is not placed on class list.
How is the Continuous Enrollment payment collected?
Each family’s CE payment will be assessed through the payment method they are currently using. FACTS payers will notice a payment posted to their account and monthy/semiannual/annual payers will receive a bill through the mail.
*FACTS payers who do not want their CE payment applied to their FACTS account must notify the office on or before February 20th.
How does Continuous Enrollment benefit parents?
In one word – simplicity. It also provides peace of mind with guaranteed placement for your child in the upcoming year. With increasing enrollment, CHA often has waiting lists in certain grades. Continuous Enrollment ensures your child has a seat until graduation.
What should I expect each year for Continuous Enrollment?
Families will simply receive a communication reminder from the Admissions Office informing the families that might be thinking about leaving our school to notify us prior to the end of March. If last year is any indication, this means that more than 90% of CHA families will have the convenience of disregarding this message and doing absolutely nothing!
What if we decide to withdraw?
A two week period prior to March 1st will be designated to withdraw effectively.
What if our circumstances change after March 1st?
Families withdrawing after March 1st, will be assessed a $500 withdrawal fee per student and tuition will be pro-rated on a daily basis, if applicable. Report cards and transcripts will not be released until all financial obligations are paid in full. While penalty may seem steep, many schools require a semester or even a year of tuition once a family is enrolled for the following year.
I’m planning on keeping my children at CHA until college, but what if God has other plans for my family? Are there exceptions to the contract for unique circumstances?
We’ve built flexibility into this contract. So, for major life changes and unique circumstances, there will be no financial penalty. These scenarios might include a relocation that no longer allows CHA to be a viable option because of transportation issues, military orders, or other extraordinary circumstances that would be considered by the Board of Directors.
