FINANCIAL AGREEMENT

Philosophy

Greater Grace Christian Academy’s mission is to provide the highest quality Christ-centered education to the families it serves. GGCA understands parents, in some cases, are making great sacrifices in order to enroll their children in a Christian school. Our finance department is ready and willing to work with parents so that, by God’s grace, no one who desires to be in GGCA will be left out. As with any school the balance between the desire to provide education to everyone who wants it and the need to meet the monetary needs of the school’s operation (expenses, teachers’ salaries and overhead) is delicate. The following Terms and Conditions define the commitment each parent is making when registering their child in GGCA. We are prepared, within reason, to work things out so that the continuity of each child’s education is not interrupted, however these Terms and Conditions will be applied.

Tuition price

The tuition price includes the cost of books and a yearbook. Tuition amounts also include curriculum costs; a portion of which may be refunded depending on the outcome of an application to the Maryland State Dept of Education. Any refund due will be administered at the end of the 3rd quarter.

Withdrawal / Expulsion

If Students are withdrawn from school, the only monies that can be refunded are any monies paid beyond the quarter in which the Student(s) are withdrawn. No registration fees are refundable. Prior to the first day of school, any monies paid will be refunded upon withdrawal, except registration fees. Withdrawal only negates the charges beyond the quarter in which the students are withdrawn and the responsible party is liable for any charges unpaid. Expulsion will negate charges beyond the date of expulsion.

Activities Deposit

The activities deposit of $375 is payable up front to cover the possibility that a student(s) will participate in certain extra curricular activities, 5th through 12th grades only. The fees for the various extra-curricular activities are as follows:

Middle School Girls$160$235$180
