Dayton Christian students are now officially re-enrolled for the 2020-2021 academic school year. Parents who need to initiate the withdrawal process must contact their principal’s office. If your student is in PreK- Grade 6, please contact Beth Towle in the elementary office. If your student is in Grades 7-12, please contact Pam Sargent. Parents of DC Homeschool students should contact Lauren Malmstrom.
What is Continuous Enrollment?
Once you enroll your child(ren) at DC, you do nothing to re-enroll for future academic years. You’re assessed a non-refundable Annual Student Commitment Fee per student in March.
However, if your children currently attend DC and will not return for the 2020-2021 school year, you must complete the Decline Re-Enrollment Form by March 15, 2020 to avoid paying the Annual Student Commitment Fee and other late-withdrawal penalty fees. Please carefully review the schedule of fees below and plan accordingly. We consider any withdrawal notifications we receive after March 15, 2020 as late.
What are the fees?
As stated above, the Annual Student Commitment Fee will be billed to each student’s account after March 15, 2020. Students who withdraw after the March 15 deadline will be billed the Annual Student Commitment Fee and could be subject to other fees based on the withdrawal policy below.
|Date of Notification||Fee|
|Prior to March 15||No fee for withdrawal|
|March 15||Annual Student Commitment Fee: $150 grades K-12/$100 Preschool and Homeschool|
|March 16 – April 30||*$250 Late Withdrawal Fee|
|After April 30||*10% of gross annual tuition for late withdrawal|
All fees are per student and non-refundable.
How do we pay our annual student commitment fee?
Annual Student Commitment Fees will be added to your current FACTS agreement.
How will we be billed?
Your tuition payment plan will remain the same as it is for the current school year. If you wish to change your payment plan option, please log on to your FACTS account or call 1(866) 441-4637.
Are new students charged the Annual Student Commitment Fee?
No, new students applying to attend Dayton Christian are not charged this fee. It’s only applied to current students returning next year.
Why is it important to let the school know if we plan to withdraw?
Withdrawals have a significant impact on our planning, hiring and budgeting for the next school year. The school leadership must begin planning early for the upcoming school year if we are to be good stewards of our resources. Plans are made well in advance for staffing, programs, materials, curriculum, and facility usage based on the number of students we expect for the upcoming year. We strive to be fiscally responsible and to make wise decisions regarding our resources. For example, we make teacher hiring decisions each spring based on the number of students expected in each grade. Late withdrawals negatively affect all these plans.
Do I still need to contact the Admissions Office for any other reason?
Yes, there are circumstances that do require you to contact our Admissions Office. For example, please notify the Admissions Office about any changes in your student’s enrollment, such as transferring from our Homeschool program to our traditional school. Also keep us informed whenever you change addresses, phone numbers or email addresses, or have a change in marital status and name, so we can keep our records accurate and up to date.
