Tuition and Fees
Competitive Tuition Rates
We are anticipating continued growth for ACA. Our enrollment has grown considerably the past two years, and we project that we will have 123+ students enrolled for 2017-2018. That being said, please don’t hesitate to complete enrollment/re-enrollment forms as soon as you can to ensure room and placement for your student. We plan to have two Kindergarten classes; two First grades; two Second grades; and two Third grades this coming 2017-2018 school year. We anticipate each of these grades K – 3rd to be full by mid-March. We also expect our 5th grade to be full by the end of February.
While we haven’t solidified the availability to offer 9th grade next year and begin a High School, the possibilities are there. With ongoing parental support, more information will be given as we continue to explore the possibilities.
The ACA Board of Directors has approved a new initiative for our school. We are adding an annual ACA Capital Improvement Fund in 2017-2018. The fund will be $200 per/family per/year and will be due mid-October. These funds will be used to add classrooms or buildings as we grow. The yearly family fund will be the beginning of a process to repair and enlarge the facility as needs arise. The $200 charge is 100% tax-deductible.
Attached you will find Antioch Christian Academy’s Tuition & Fee Schedules for the 2017-2018 school year. For the last nine years, ACA has worked diligently to keep the total cost of educating our students to a minimum. A few years ago, the national average cost of educating a single child was $12,500 per child. For the upcoming 2017-2018 school year, ACA is educating your child for a total of $4,600, which is less than 1/2 of the national average. For Christian schools with comparable programs to ACA, the average cost of tuition and fees in the Oklahoma City Metro is $6,000+ per child
As you may know, ACA consolidated the previously numerous small student fees throughout the year into one cumulative fee of $600 per student. We are grateful to have received such positive feedback from parents thus far. What a blessing and a joy to work together on improvements! While the $600 cumulative fee delivers a very slim margin to cover our expenses as a school, it is our hope that you will continue to experience the long range benefit of a simplified fee process throughout the year.
The ACA Board of Directors gives three types of discounts for ACA Families:
- Early Re-Enrollment discount applies to tuition only and will be applied to all enrollment packets submitted by Feb 29th. It is a $50 discount.
- Payment Discounts apply to tuition only and can be obtained by selecting either the Single Payment or Semester Payment options. These discounts are covered on the tuition and fee schedule and range from $50-$100 per student per year.
- Family Discounts apply to both tuition and student fees and can be obtained by enrolling more than one of your K-8th students at ACA. These discounts are covered on the tuition and fee schedule and range from $100-$300 per additional student per year.
For your benefit, we have provided a Family Tuition & Fee Worksheet on the 3rd page of this packet. This should not be returned to the school. It is intended to help you clarify costs, discounts, due dates and payment amounts for your family.
