Application Fee

The application fee of $65 is required for each family applying for admission. This fee covers all admission processing costs. It is a non-refundable fee and must accompany the completed application form online. If your child is currently in FCA's Childcare or Preschool, the application fee is waived.

Enrollment Fee

 
The enrollment fee of $200 per child ($300 maximum per family) for Kindergarten - 12th Grade students is paid annually at the time of enrollment. As an option, you can receive free enrollment if you enroll your child between the dates of January 27, 2020 through March 2, 2020 (current FCA families). This fee reserves a seat for your student. It is a non-refundable fee and must be paid in full, both for new and returning student.

Incentives

 
For our new families, for merely being a new family to FCA, we will waive the $200 Enrollment Fee for your first year here. 
 
For our current families, we have the Parent Referral Program. The new family must put the FCA parent's name on their application of who referred them to FCA. Once the application is received, the Admissions Office will alert the FCA Finance Office of the referral. For every full time student enrolled, the FCA parent will receive a $200 tuition credit.  
 
For multi-student families, a tuition discount is offered for each additional student enrolled during the same term. Tuition is calculated beginning with the 1st student at the highest grade level.

Tuition Assistance

 
FCA has a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) that can help pay for a portion of tuition. The 2020-2021 Tuition Assistance Applications will be available online in March for new students. New students can apply online AFTER the student(s) has/have been accepted. Please keep in mind there is a limited amount of assistance money available for qualifying families demonstrating need. There is a $35 fee to apply for assistance. Tuition Assistance Applications must be filed by April 16, 2020. To apply, click on FACTS link.
 
FCA also has scholarships through the Ohio Department of Education. The EdChoice Expansion Scholarship is available for Kindergarten through 12th grade. The scholarship is based on income and the number of people in the household. The EdChoice Traditional Scholarship is based on if a student's current school is considered a low-performing desingated school. Student must be accepted at FCA before applying for these scholarships. Please contact Kara Stephens for more information.  

Withdrawal Process

If the student needs to withdraw during the school year, please notify the main office at least two (2) weeks in advance if possible. An exit interview must be scheduled with the Principal by the parent or legal guardian. This will enable us to notify the teacher, determine any balance or refund on your tuition account, and complete the necessary paperwork. In order to have your student's academic records transferred from Fairfield Christian Academy to a new school, you must sign a Records Release Form at the new school. Upon receipt of the signed Records Release Form, we will mail the records directly to the new school. Please note: all tuition and fees must be current before any records will be released.

Preschool:

  1. After August 1, one (1) month tuition for each child (based on a 10-month payment)

Kindergarten - 12th Grade:
