Financial Policies

FCA offers three means by which tuition may be paid:

  • Tuition may be paid in August for the entire year. Accounts paid in full before school begins will receive a five percent discount.
  • Tuition may be paid in ten monthly installments (August-May or September-June).

Payments are due on the first of each month and are considered to be late after the fifth. Payments not received by the fifth will be subject to a $25.00 late fee. Returned checks will incur a $35.00 service charge.

Students who withdraw or are expelled will be responsible for tuition based upon the quarter in which they leave the school:

before Oct. 1       25%  of tuition is due.

before Dec. 1       50%  of tuition is due.

before Feb. 1       75%  of tuition is due.

after Feb. 1     100%  of tuition is due.

If tuition is more than 60 days past due, students will not be allowed to attend school until the account is current. Students with tuition 45 days in arrears will not be permitted to take exams and grades will not be issued. Requests for an extension must be made in writing before 45 days have elapsed. Extensions are granted by the school board.

If an account is not current at the end of the year, FCA will not release final grades, diplomas, or transcripts until the account is current. Accounts must be paid in full before report cards or transcripts will be released. This would include any June payments.
