TUITION ASSISTANCE

A limited amount of tuition assistance is available for WCA families. To apply for financial assistance, please submit an online application at online.factsmgt.com/aid. The maximum amount of tuition assistance a family is eligible for is 40% of tuition. There is a fee assessed by FACTS when you apply.

LATE ENROLLMENT

Tuition for students entering after school has begun will be pro-rated based on the quarter the student starts.

WITHDRAWAL/DISMISSAL

A withdrawal form must be completed and received by WCA before a student is considered withdrawn.
If a student withdraws after 6/1/21 but prior to the first day of school, 25% of the annual tuition will be charged.
If a student withdraws or is dismissed after the start of the school year, but prior to the start of the 3rd quarter, 75% of the annual tuition will be charged. If a student withdraws after the start of the 3rd quarter, 100% of the annual tuition will be charged.

A written appeal from a family to the WCA Board President will be considered if extraordinary circumstances arise. (e.g. military transfer, loss of employment)

RECORDS & TRANSCRIPTS

Student records will be forwarded to other schools for students whose tuition, fees, and fine accounts are current. No records or transcripts will be sent from WCA to other schools or colleges for students whose financial obligations are not paid in full.

Financial accounts

No student will be permitted to attend classes, participate in school activities or have access to RenWeb whose financial account is more than 45 days in arrears. The school reserves the right to demand full semester payment in advance from families who have in previous years failed to meet their financial obligations on a timely basis, superseding the normal FACTS payment options.
