Financial Policy

Temple Christian School is fully supported by student tuition payments. TCS does not receive any outside financial support.  TCS has a financial responsibility to pay our staff and vendors in a timely manner and therefore it is imperative that tuition payments are paid on time. Each year our school board meets annually to discuss the financial stability of the school and to review the tuition rates based on student enrollment.  All decisions for tuition rates are made by the school board.  Tuition payments are required to be paid on the 1st of every month.  A late fee of $35 is applied to any past due account of $100 or more as of the 6th of the month.

If tuition payments cannot be made on the 1st of every month, please contact the Administration Office to discuss the extenuating circumstance.

Payment can be made via FACTS or in the Administration Office.  If payment is made by a card, debit or credit, the charge is subject to a fee of 3.5% plus .15 per transaction.

Temple Christian School offers various discounts for tuition.

Financial Aid

 

Temple Christian School offers Financial Aid for all grades.  In order to apply for Financial Aid, you must have physical custody/guardianship of the student(s). Qualification for financial aid is determined by criteria set up within the FACTS Financial Aid System. Once initial qualification is determined, further approval as well as the amount of aid is decided and finalized within the Finance Department at TCS.

Student Referral Program

 

Families referring a new student will receive a credit as the new student completes a full semester. One credit per new family will be issued, regardless of how many new students are in that family. There is no limit to how many credits can be received, but IRS rules require TCS to issue a 1099 tax form to any family receiving more than $600 tuition credit.  For more information, please visit our Referral Program page.

Financial Suspension

 

If an account is past due at the end of the month, TCS may suspend the student from classes until the account is current. Any absences due to financial suspension will be unexcused; therefore, the student will not be allowed to make up any missed work and will be given zeros.  Only certified funds will be accepted as payment to be taken after a Financial Suspension.  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.

Late/unpaid tuition is subject to being reported to all three credit bureaus.  Accounts where students are subsequently withdrawn from school without paying the past due tuition will be turned over to a collection agency.

Class Trips/Graduation

 

Tuition MUST be current for any student to attend a class trip or participate in Graduation cermonies.  Payments made will be applied to past due amounts first before applying any monies to class trip fees.

Refunds

 

Refunds for overages or errors must be reported within 30 days of the payment date. Contact the school front counter administrative assistant to begin the process. Refunds will be processed with 7-10 business days.

Tuition contracts are for the term of the school year and must be paid in full according to the signed agreement. There are no refunds for early withdrawal. Extenuating circumstances should be discussed with the Administrative Pastor. 

Once a class trip contract is signed, there will be no refunds for amounts already collected.
