Other Terms and Conditions:
It is understood that enrollment for an academic year is contingent upon the student’s satisfactory completion of the previous academic year and the Responsible Party(ies) remaining in good financial standing with River Oak Christian Academy.
We agree that the term of my student’s continuous enrollment begins with this signed CEC and, thereafter, continues automatically through the completion of Grade 8 or, if necessary, until the Withdrawal Form is completed and received by River Oak Christian Academy.
We agree to keep our student’s demographic information, emergency contacts, and approved pick-up people updated in Ren Web or other recordkeeping systems maintained by River Oak Christian Academy.
We agree to maintain my/our selected FACTS financial agreement. We agree to the financial policies set forth in this agreement and acknowledge that we will review the Student/Parent Handbook each year for any changes to those policies and agree to abide by all rules and policies as set forth therein.
We pledge to pay tuition and fees in a timely manner. I understand that my child may be dismissed when the past due tuition and fees balance exceeds 20% of the family’s annual responsibility. In the case of unexpected financial hardship, it is our responsibility to contact the school office to arrange a meeting with the Head of School and/or School Board Treasurer.
A spot for the upcoming year will not be held for a student if any tuition or fees are past due by 30 days or more. All amounts due for the prior year must be paid in full by June 1.
We understand that there will be no reduction in tuition for time missed by our child due to illness or other reasons.
