Cornerstone Christian Academy has partnered with FACTS Tuition Management Company to collect and process tuition. FACTS tuition management program is an automated payment system. What this means is that parents are preauthorizing their bank or credit card company to automatically transfer funds to CCA on the installment payment dates traditional to the school. No more mailing checks – unless one is paying the entire tuition upfront at the beginning of the year or upon enrollment. Preauthorized automated payments can be done conveniently from one’s checking or savings account, or by way of MC, Discover, or AMEX – NO VISA.
Your first tuition payment is due July 20, 2014. You may choose one of the payment options in the chart below. The 10-month payment plan begins July 20, 2014 and ends April 20, 2015. If you choose one of the tuition payment plans below, there is an annual fee of $41.00 to cover the cost of managing your account. If you pay in full by July 20, 2014 you do not need to pay the management fee.
Pre-K4 - 5th
|Payment Type||6th - 8th|
- Those who enroll after July 20, 2014: The monthly payment is based on the yearly tuition divided by the remaining months in the cycle through the final April 20, 2015 payment.
- Those who enroll after school begins: The yearly tuition is prorated for the number of school days remaining and then divided by the number of months left in the cycle through the final April, 2015 payment.
- Those who withdraw after registering with FACTS but prior to the beginning of the school year: If it becomes necessary to withdraw a child after registering with FACTS you have forfeited your first two tuition payments.
- Those who withdraw after the beginning of the school year: Once the school year begins and it becomes necessary to withdraw a child please, inform the school two weeks in advance with written verification and the reason for withdrawal. A withdrawal form is available in the school office, and a $1,000.00 (one thousand dollar) charge will incur at the time of request. You will be obligated to pay tuition through the end of the month in which you withdraw. Parents are required to have Tuition, Extended Care bills, Service Hour payments and any other outstanding debts paid in full at the time of withdrawal. Student records will not be transferred to another school until all balances are paid.

CCA’s Extended Care Program is licensed with the Maryland State Department of Education Office of Child Care. Our staff is extensively trained and meets all requirements for providing quality care in a licensed facility. In order to meet the Office of Child Care guidelines for student to staff ratios, each family must pre-register for the Extended Care Program. A $50.00 non-refundable registration fee per family is due to reserve a space in our Extended Care program. This fee will be credited towards your first month’s Extended Care costs.

Extended Care fees will be billed at the beginning of the school year and included in your monthly FACTS payment.
Students must be picked up by their respective tier time. Should a student not be picked up, you and/or your emergency contact will be notified. An additional fee of $1.00 per minute per child will be charged. This fee is to be paid in cash to the After Care staff when you pick up your child. Excessive lateness will result in suspension/dismissal from the Extended Care program.
No After Care is provided when CCA has a noon dismissal (1/2 day) or when Prince George’s County Schools close early or cancel after school activities due to inclement weather. There is no Extended Care when school is closed. If school is delayed in opening due to inclement weather, Before Care will open accordingly.
DROP IN CARE
Should emergencies occur, such as an illness, traffic, etc., Drop In Care will be offered. Drop In Care will not be provided for Before Care. You must notify the office by 2:30 pm to determine availability of space if requesting Drop In Care. If no space is available and you cannot pick up by 3:30 pm you will be charged $1.00 per minute per child for every minute after 3:30 pm. Drop In Care will be on a limited basis at a rate of $10.00 per day. In the event that Drop In Care charges occur, you will be notified and the amount will be added to your next monthly FACTS payment. Drop In Care will not be offered in the month of June in order that we may process all payments and records prior to the end of the school year.
