2017-2018 TCS TUITION AND FEES

 

IMPORTANT! Multiple Child Discounts are reflected in rates listed below. Additional discounts available are listed below.

Effective in 2017 – 2018, the school board has voted to combine the cost of Tuition and Fees (Enrollment, Technology, Science, and Activity) into one flat cost. This flat cost to attend TCS is the Annual Tuition.

The table below lists the Base Tuition for 2017 – 2018 as well as the combined cost of the Fees (Enrollment, Technology, Science, and Activity). Please note, the cost of fees for 2017 – 2018 did NOT increase. The last column in the table below is the one flat cost or Annual Tuition.

With the Enrollment Fee now being rolled into the Annual Tuition cost, an Initial Payment on the Annual Tuition will be made at the time of enrollment. This is not a separate fee and is not in addition to the Annual Tuition. It is simply the Initial Payment on the Annual Tuition for your child. The Initial Payment of $400 has been standardized across grades. For more information on the Initial Payment please see below.

A completed Application and the Application Fee must be submitted prior to scheduling the entrance test. Once a test is administered, the Application Fee is non-refundable.

In the event that testing is not administered, the Application Fee is refundable minus $25 for administrative processing of the application.

 

An email of acceptance will be sent upon successful testing and acceptance to TCS. The Initial Payment (see below) must be paid within 30 days of the date the email notification is sent by TCS. Due to limited class size we cannot hold a place in the class for your student if the Initial Payment is not submitted in this time frame.

 

 

FACTS TUITION MANAGMENT

FACTS is a third-party company that services schools across the nation in the areas of Tuition Management and Financial Aid. TCS has partnered with FACTS to collect tuition as well as other costs associated with the education of your student.

 

At the time of enrollment, you will be asked to set up your tuition payment plan and method of payment. You may choose from a 10-month (July – April) or a 12-month (June – May) payment plan. Parents also have the option to pay for the year in full.

 

The preferred method of payment for tuition and other costs is an ACH bank transfer. In addition, FACTS accepts credit card and check payments. A small fee will be assessed when using a credit card with FACTS. There will be a $35 charge for all returned checks. Parents enrolling on or after June 1st who want to pay on the 12-month plan must make up any missed payments.

 

 

ENROLLMENT

Enrollment and re-enrollment for the upcoming academic year will begin early in the spring semester. Please visit the Enrollment Process webpage to complete enrollment forms. TCS Family Accounts must be current, up to the submission date of the re-enrollment packet, prior to enrolling your student for the upcoming school year.

 

 

INITIAL PAYMENT

At the time of enrollment, an Initial Payment of the Annual Tuition Cost is due. A discount in the amount of $50 will be applied for each student enrolled before April 15th.

 

Tuition Initial Payment:

Enrollment for full school year (K4 – 12)                                                              $400

Your student’s position in the class is secure once all entrance requirements have been satisfied and the Initial Payment has been processed.

 

The Initial Payment is non-refundable.

 

 

Payment of Tuition:

Monthly invoices for tuition payments will be sent to the parents prior to the due date.

 

Tuition payments are due the first day of each month. Accounts not current at the close of business on the first day of the month will be considered past due. If the first day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, the due date will be the first day of business following the first day of the month.

 

Past due accounts will be given a grace period through the close of business on the 10th day of the month. Accounts past due in the amount of $100 or more at the close of business on the 10th day of the month will be assessed a $35 late fee.

 

If an account is past due at the end of the month, TCS may suspend the student from classes until the account is current. Parents anticipating financial difficulties should immediately contact the Administrative Pastor for consultation.

 

Official records, including transcripts, will not be released until a student's account is paid in full.
