2018-2019 Variable Rate Tuition & Fees

At Shekinah Christian School, no student pays 100% of the cost of education. With our generous donors, supporting churches, endowment fund, and other activities like the Shekinah Festival, every student’s cost of education has already been supplemented by more than 20%.

 

We are excited to launch an additional innovative new way for current and new SCS families to access education at SCS: Variable Tuition.

Payment Plans

       

 

 

Pre-Payment in full: A 5% discount may be deducted if full annual tuition is received before August 1, 2018.

 

Monthly Payment Plan: 12 months (Aug - July) Tuition is billed the first Wednesday of each month. Payments are due by the end of each month.  Any outstanding balance at the end of each month will incur a 1.5% (18% annual) late fee. Accounts must be current at the end of each academic quarter in order for student/s to continue at Shekinah the following quarter.

 

Tuition for international students must be paid in full before the start of the school year.

             

 

Partial Year Enrollment

     
 

For students enrolling after the start of the school year, tuition will be prorated by the number of school days remaining in the school year.  Pre-payment discount is not offered for partial year.

             

Early Withdrawal During the Year

   
 

Students withdrawing between July 1 and the last day of school will be required to pay tuition for the entire quarter in which they withdrawal.  For example, if a student withdrawals July 10, prior to the first day of class, 25% of the annual tuition amount will be charged.  If a student withdrawals during the 3rd quarter, their final bill will reflect a total of 75% of the annual tuition amount less any tuition payment(s) already received.

             

Shekinah Festival

       
 

All parents are encouraged to participate in the annual Shekinah Festival which takes place in September.  This is a major fundraiser for the school, historically raising $450 - 500 per student. One half of the net proceeds of the Festival are distributed evenly per student as a tuition reduction/refund in the month of December.
