Continuous Enrollment

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. This fee secures your child’s seat for the following academic year and allows the school to plan accordingly.

If your child(ren) currently attend DC and will not return for the upcoming school year, you must complete the Decline Re-Enrollment Form by March 1 of each year to avoid paying the Annual Student Commitment Fee and a fee equivalent to 10 percent of your child’s annual tuition costs.

What are the fees?

2023-2024 Tuition and Fees

As stated above, the Annual Student Commitment Fee will be billed to each student’s FACTS account after March 1, 2023. Students who withdraw after the March 1 deadline will be billed the Annual Student Commitment Fee and a fee equivalent to 10 percent of your student’s 2023-2024 tuition.

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 the following academic year.

Why is it important to let the school know if we plan to withdraw?

Withdrawals have a significant impact on our upcoming school year. Plans are made well in advance for staffing, programming, materials, curriculum, and facility usage based on the number of students we expect for the school 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.

Also, demand for Dayton Christian has led us to create waitlists for some grades. It is important for us to know if a student is not returning so that we can notify waiting families that a seat is available for the following year.

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.
