Attendance at Covenant is based upon evidence that the parents are committed to the Lord Jesus Christ and to the principles and program of Christian education offered by Covenant. Therefore, the administration is responsible for screening new and continuing families relative to such commitment. The registration process includes a pastoral reference letter initiated by the administration. It is important that families are regularly involved in the life of an evangelical church.
The selection of families is not based upon denomination affiliation, race, or sociological factors.Covenant Classical Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its employment, educational and admission policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs. It is our desire to minister to the entire family; however, if our classes cannot meet the needs of a student, the student is not accepted.
September 1 is the birth date cutoff for enrollment, hence a child must be five (5) years old (kindergarten), or six (6) years old (first grade) on or before September 1 of that year. Covenant does not seek to push or frustrate a child when he/she is not developmentally ready. A child’s age is often not the best determining factor for readiness in school. A placement test is administered to new students entering Covenant in kindergarten through eighth grade. The nonrefundable application fee includes testing and the application process.
An existing family may re-enroll by signing a re-enrollment contract. There will be no fee if the family re-enrolls during the month of February. A late fee of $150 will be charged during the month of March and a late fee of $250.00 will be charged from April 1 forward.
A student may be un-enrolled before the beginning of the next academic year because of outstanding financial balances or frequent violations of school rules.
Parents must obtain a Withdrawal Notice from the School Office. This form is completed and submitted to the School Office 30 days in advance of the withdrawal date. All textbooks, library books, and athletic uniforms must be returned. The balance of the year’s tuition and any outstanding debts must be satisfied. A student’s records are not forwarded if the withdrawal process is incomplete.
Tuition is invoiced monthly and is due the first of each month according to the payment plan. If the payment is received after the due date, regardless of a weekend, holiday or school break, it is considered past due and a $25 late fee is assessed. Extended care fees are billed weekly. Monthly statements are emailed after the tenth of the month when there is an outstanding balance. There is a $20.00 fee for all returned checks. Any account that has two returned checks within a one-year period is required to pay cash. Parents are encouraged to contact the Financial Administrator as soon as possible concerning a problem with finances. If an account is in arrears of a month’s tuition or a two-week extended care fee, the student may be removed from enrollment and unable to return until the account is current. A student’s records are not transferred until all outstanding debts are satisfied. All debts must be satisfied prior to graduation for senior students.
