Continuous Enrollment

Continuous Enrollment


To help make life simpler and more convenient for our Dayton Christian School families, we have an automatic continuous enrollment process. Once you enroll your child(ren) you do nothing to re-enroll for future academic years. Since more than 90% of our families return every year, it makes more sense to simply plan on everyone returning unless you notify us otherwise.

Do I still need to contact the Admissions Office for any reason?

Yes, there are circumstances that do require you to contact our Admissions Office. For example, please notify the Admssions 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 or 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.

If you do choose not to return for the 2018-2019 school year, you must complete the Withdrawal Notification Form by March 15, 2018.

What are the fees involved?

A non-refundable Annual Student Commitment Fee of $150 will be billed to each student’s account on March 19, 2018.

If the Withdrawal Notification Form is submitted after June 30, 2018, a fee equal to 10% of the student’s gross annual tuition will be billed to your student’s account.  All fees are non-refundable.

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 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.

Will the school send a reminder notification?

Yes, during the January-March re-enrollment season, the Admissions Office will send a reminder notification well in advance of the March 15 deadline informing families who may be considering leaving our school to complete the Withdrawal Notification Form, which is available in DC Connect. The majority of DCS families can disregard our reminder and do absolutely nothing.
