West Coast Christian School
A. Fee Schedule
B. Registration Fee
For new students, the registration fee must be paid at the time of enrollment. Returning students must pay registration fee during the “Re-enrollment” period. This fee holds a spot for student placement and helps pay for state required school insurance, matriculation fees (such as processing fees, record retrieval, copy fees, ect…), supply fee (covers all supplies, except for a KJV Bible and special art/science projects) and a Yearbook fee (providing the child meets the attendance requirement). This fee is non-refundable for those who choose not to attend West Coast Christian School.
C. Book Fees
All book fees must be paid in full for all registered students by July 1st. Any students that register after this date must have fees paid in full by the 1st day of class. There is a $10.00 charge for Re-do/Lost Paces. Re-do/Lost Pace costs are payable with following month’s tuition. If a student is without a book two days in succession, a book will be ordered and charged to the parent.
D. Tuition Payments
Tuition fees may be paid a year in advance, by the semester in advance, or in ten (10) equal payments per month. If you wish to pay for the entire year or a semester you will receive a 5% discount. Tuition paid monthly is due on the first of each month. Payments made after the eighth (8th) are considered late, and your account will be charged a $25.00 late fee.
Students attending one day or more of any month will owe the full month’s tuition. Final Report Cards and school records will not be released until all accounts are paid in full, including lunch account.
All accounts may be paid in the school office to the financial secretary or by mail to 718 N.W. 1st Ave., Crystal River, FL 34428. Please make all checks payable to West Coast Christian School or WCCS written in black or blue ink.
E. Financial Aid
Our mission as a school is to enable all families to place their children in the school environment they judge best. We offer financial aid discounts for the tuition in the amounts of $650.00 or $300.00, yearly discount depending on household income. This Financial Aid is available, for qualifying families, on Tuition only. Families who will qualify must complete a Financial Aid Application and submit a copy of last year’s income tax return form or W2s. In order to maintain eligibility, families must retain their qualifying household income and must keep all accounts current. Newly registering families must return completed paperwork by the date of enrollment. Re-registering families must return complete paperwork by April 30th.
Guidelines for Financial Aid
F. Delinquent Accounts
All accounts are considered delinquent if not paid by the eighth (8th) day of the month. A statement will be issued on the tenth (10th) with a late fee charge of $25.00 and as of the fifteenth (15th) the student will not be allowed to return to class until all accounts are paid in full. Accounts not paid by the end of the month will result in the dismissal of the student. Any accounts not paid in full by the end of the month will have thirty (30) days to pay account in full or make arrangements to pay account balance in full. If no actions are taken to pay account balances, the account will be sent to collections. Report cards and other academic records will not be released if accounts are in arrears. Payment arrangements may be made, two weeks prior to any due dates with our financial secretary in order to avoid dismissal.
G. Returned Check Fee
The first time a check is returned on any account there will be an additional $25.00 insufficient funds fee. The second time a check is returned, there will be a $25.00 insufficient funds fee, as well as a cash only policy. This means we will expect payment by cash or money order only for all your accounts.
H. Refund Policy
If for any reason your child is not accepted by West Coast Christian School, all fees will be refunded. Refunds will not be given for students who choose not to attend WCCS and those who withdraw from school.
I. Income Tax Form Policy
The receipt you receive, from the financial office is appropriate for tax purposes. Our Tax ID number is printed on the receipt. If you require an additional form at tax time, there is a $10.00 fee for each form. Please allow one week for preparation of any and all forms. Please keep your receipts if you need them for your taxes.
