Tues/Thurs Part-Time Study Hall Program

This program offers CCA students assistance from qualified teachers in completing their satellite schoolwork. Resources will be provided for successful completion of homework assignments, e.g. computers. Please note that this program is not intended to serve as a substitute for parental involvement.
Part-Time Course Enrollment Program
A part-time support program is available to homeschool families interested in enrolling a student in individual courses at CCA. Homeschool students may enroll in up to 4 classes per year. Homeschool students must complete the admissions process in order to enroll in classes on a part-time basis (see Admissions section above). Upon acceptance, the academic supply fee will be prorated at a per course rate, but the full immersion learning fee must be paid for students eligible to participate. A part-time student who later wishes to enroll in CCA’s full-time program will be required to pay a transfer credit fee for high school credits earned outside CCA, subject to approval by the Principal.
Part-time students will not be eligible for graduation from CCA. An exception to this policy is for high school seniors who do not require a full-time schedule to graduate. The senior may request part-time enrollment, subject to approval by the Principal. Seniors enrolled on a part-time basis are required to participate in the CLAW retreat. Please see the Parent/Student Handbook for further details.
HS Independent Study and other Supplemental Course Enrollment
High school students registered on a full-time basis may be eligible for enrollment in independent study or other supplemental courses at a per course rate. Enrollment in the additional class(es) is subject to approval by the Principal.
Students in 7th-12th grades may participate in CCA’s athletic program. There is a $400 Athletics fee per sport for the first two sports in which a student is enrolled. The Athletics fee for the 3rd sport is $300. Athletic fees are non-refundable, unless there is not a sufficient number of students for a sport to make or if after tryouts are held the student
does not make a team in the requested sport. Participation is allowed in only one sport per season and any exceptions require the prior approval of the Athletic Director. Availability of particular sports is dependent upon student participation. HS Cheer is an activity for current students that is billed separately after evaluations occur in the spring and the squad has been selected. See program details for more information.

Learning Lab enrollment and fees are reassessed each school year.
Dyslexia Therapy Program
The CCA Dyslexia Therapy program is for 1st-12th grade students who have a diagnosis of dyslexia or other specified reading disorder. The program has two separate tracks depending on the level of therapy needed. The Special Programs Director will review each applicant’s case to determine the appropriate level of intervention required. The non-refundable fees for this program are as follows:

Curriculum/Books & School Supply Costs
Parents are required to purchase the needed curriculum and supplies for their student for each course by the first day of classes. CCA will provide families with curriculum lists necessary for each grade via email, through CCA’s online communication system and the school website on the Resources page. CCA’s vendor for textbooks and adjunct materials is MBS Direct (bookstore.mbsdirect.net). A link to their website can be accessed on the home page on CCA’s website, at www.ccawarriors.com. Teachers/Coaches may periodically require additional supplies for special projects, assignments, uniforms, etc. In such cases, the fees may be added directly to the family’s FACTS account.
All students are required to wear uniforms as detailed in the Student Dress Code in the CCA Parent/Student Handbook. CCA families are required to purchase uniform items for their student from Academic Outfitters or Academy Sports as
detailed in the Dress Code policy. Each family must purchase uniforms to meet their individual needs. Compliance with the student dress code is required by all students, including homeschool and other part-time students enrolled in individual classes. Some athletic uniforms and equipment are purchased by the family and are retained by the family beyond the school year. Athletic uniforms and equipment provided by CCA remain the property of CCA and must be turned in at the conclusion of each season.
A $25 fee will be assessed for each course added or dropped beyond the cut-off date. See Parent/Student Handbook for details.
A $50 fee will be assessed for accepting a student’s transfer credits. This fee is waived in the initial transfer of credits for new students if the credits are from an accredited source. See Parent/Student Handbook for details.
Discount amounts are offered and approved annually by CCA Board and Administration. Discounts apply only to tuition costs. Discounts will not apply to athletic fees, registration fees, or any other charge or fees. Only one discount can be applied at a time per family. All discounts are subject to the federal tax guidelines and allowances. All discounts are surrendered in the event of breach of contract.
Discounts are available to families under the following circumstances:
- Multi-student tuition discounts:
3rd student - 5% tuition discount
4th student - 7.5% tuition discount
5th student - 10% tuition discount
- Ministry tuition discount: for families where the head of household is employed in full-time ministry, which includes the following full-time positions: pastor, youth minister, music director or missionary. Proof of ministry is required in the form of a letter on church letterhead, signed by the chairman of the Board of Directors, deacon or other elder body of the church verifying current full-time employment in ministry. At the time of enrollment or re-enrollment, all families are required to submit a FACTS Grant & Aid application in order to be considered for this discount. The information provided to FACTS will be used to process the application. FACTS will then provide CCA with a determination of need which will be used to establish the family’s tuition discount and enable CCA to better access the financial needs of its ministerial families. This process must be completed every school year the ministry discount is requested.
- Employee tuition discount: for CCA employees pursuant to their annual employment contract.
Tuition and Fees Payment
The student registration fee is non-refundable and is due by check made payable to CCA upon registration. All families are required to enroll with FACTS Management Company for management of tuition and fee payments and incidental charges. Monthly tuition installments can be arranged through automatic payment enrollment with FACTS Management Company. Generally, the family account balance is divided into equal monthly payments based on the number of months remaining between the day of registration and the end of CCA’s billing year which is the last day of February. Annual FACTS account management fees are paid by CCA. Delinquent payments are governed by the terms of the CCA Family Contract of Enrollment.
All tuition and fees assessed by CCA are a financial obligation that must be paid to the school according to the established due dates. Student records, including report cards, transcripts and standardized test scores will be withheld until all amounts due have been paid in full. If there is an overdue balance, students are not permitted to re-enroll, transfer records, or graduate from CCA until their account has been paid. All family financial accounts must be clear at the end of each school year. If an outstanding balance remains as of June 1, a student’s enrollment/registration will be placed on Hold and their name will be removed from the registration roster until the amounts due have been paid. Please refer to the Family Contract of Enrollment for a detailing of the financial obligations and conditions regarding tuition and fees.
New Family Referrals
Any current registered CCA family whose referral results in the annual enrollment of a full-time student of a new family will receive a credit of $200.00 on their FACTS account for the referral, upon approval by CCA. The referral must be noted in the new family’s application, and a New Family Referral Tuition Credit Form will be completed for such referral. A maximum of three referral credits may be given to a referring family per school year. Referral credits are evaluated and, if approved, will be applied in November of each year. Only one credit will be issued per family referred. If more than one family is listed on the new family’s application, the tuition credit will be divided evenly among the referring families.
