Continuous Enrollment at Trinity Christian School
We are delighted that you joined the Trinity Christian School family this year! We hope your experience has been positive. As Trinity experiences growth across all grades, we use a simplified reenrollment process called Continuous Enrollment.
What is Continuous Enrollment?
In the past, re-enrollment had been an “opt-in” program. We annually ask every family, “Are you coming back?” Now, we use an “opt-out” process. By signing the Continuous Enrollment Contract, you will never have to complete re-enrollment forms again. Your child will be considered enrolled at Trinity through his/her high school graduation unless otherwise notified by a parent/guardian. Each January, Trinity will publish the following year’s tuition rates, the annual Continuous Enrollment fee, and any changes regarding enrollment. Prior to February 15, you can choose to opt-out for the next school year if you are not planning to return. If you do not opt-out, everything continues as usual, and your child(ren) are considered enrolled for the upcoming school year.
Other Benefits for Continuous Enrollment
Accurate Financial Aid Forecast
Better planning for class scheduling, books and materials purchasing
Efficient building plans and preparations
The reenrollment process for the Admissions Office is streamlined and efficient
Continuous Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions:
What does Continuous Enrollment look like?
You will be asked to sign the Continuous Enrollment Agreement or send an Opt-Out email to the Admissions Office by February 15.
A $110 per family Continuous Enrollment fee (non-refundable) will be charged through FACTS Incidental Billing on March 1 and due on March 15.
Families applying for financial aid must complete the Financial Aid application by April 15.
On June 1, you will be asked to update your Family/Student information in FACTS.
Each year in January, you will receive notification of the “opt-out” period.
What does the Continuous Enrollment Agreement look like?
I hereby opt into Continuous Enrollment. This means that my Trinity student will return to Trinity Christian School every year unless I notify the school otherwise.
I understand that I have until February 15 every year to notify the Admissions Office of any changes in my plans for enrollment.
If I decide to disenroll after the deadline, I understand that I will be subject to Trinity’s withdrawal policies.
You can find the Continuous Enrollment Agreement by logging into your FACTS Family Portal page, click the School tab, followed by the Web Forms tab, and then the Continuous Enrollment Opt-In form. There you will be able to sign and submit your agreement.
How does the tuition payment work?
The new tuition schedule is published in January. Beginning with the June payment, your tuition will be readjusted. Unless changes are made with FACTS tuition, your payment method will stay the same.
What if I need to know what my Financial Aid award will be for my children to return?
Families who complete their financial aid through FACTS by April 15 will receive a Financial Aid decision by June 1. Families with verified FACTS Financial Aid applications who have been notified by the school will have their June payment dates adjusted to June 10, to allow time to review their financial aid award and prepare for their first payment, if needed.
Families who withdraw within 10 days after receiving their Financial Aid Notification will be eligible for a full refund of tuition paid prior to the first day of school.
What happens if I haven’t signed my Continuous Enrollment Agreement (CEA) by February 15?
If you have not signed your CEA by February 15, your student will not be considered enrolled in the upcoming school year’s class. After February 15, the fee increases to $175, and placement is not guaranteed. Once the reenrollment is completed and a $175 reenrollment fee (non-refundable) is paid, the student will then be added to the waiting list and will be officially enrolled in his or her class as space is available.
What is the penalty if I leave Trinity after the opt-out period?
If a parent withdraws a student after the opt-out period, but prior to the start of school, the withdrawal fee is 1/12 of the annual tuition. The parent must notify Trinity of the withdrawal in writing.
If a parent withdraws a student after school has begun, then tuition is due through the last day of attendance, plus an additional amount equal to one month’s tuition (1/12 of the annual fee.) The book fee is non-refundable once school has begun.
The parent must notify the Admissions Office in writing and the notification must include the reason for withdrawal and the last date the student will attend Trinity. Tuition will continue to accrue until written confirmation of the withdrawal is received by the Admissions Office.
The loss of one month’s tuition policy (1/12 of the annual tuition) shall exclude families who make tuition payments while awaiting a Financial Aid decision. Families who withdraw within 10 days after receiving their Financial Aid notification will be eligible for a full refund of tuition paid prior to the first day of school.
