Tuition & Payment Policies

Payment Options

Tuition payment plans are set up in the FACTS Tuition Management System and include Tuition, Book/Technology Fees and Transportation Fees. FACTS is accessed through ParentsWeb. Various payment plan options are available, including annual, monthly and semi-monthly options, with all tuition and fees due no later than May 31st of the current school year.

A $200 per K-12 student ($100 per Early Childhood student) non-refundable tuition deposit is due at the time of initial enrollment and each subsequent year by March 1st. This deposit applies toward tuition. We offer a 4% tuition discount for accounts paid in full by the first day of school.

If a payment plan is not set up by June 1st or within 30 days of enrollment (whichever is later), the student may lose his or her reserved spot and his or her enrollment will be processed once payment is received. If the student’s grade is full, he or she will be placed on the waiting list.

Application Fee

A one-time, $50 non-refundable application fee is due for each new applicant to TPCS. This fee is paid during the on-line application process and does not apply toward tuition.

Financial Aid

Tuition assistance is available for students demonstrating a financial need. Go to the FACTS website (https://online.factsmgt.com/aid) to apply for financial aid. TPCS participates in the Indiana Choice Scholarships (vouchers) program and the Scholarships for Education Choice (Sagamore SGO) program, as well as offering direct assistance.

Families must re-apply for financial aid each year.

Merit-based scholarships are also available that do not require the financial aid application. See our website for applications and more information.

Family Service Agreement

To increase family involvement and lower overall costs to the school, families are asked to serve volunteer hours throughout the year. The service requirement is 40 credits (1 credit is roughly equivalent to an hour) per family per year for K-12, 10 credits for EC families with children enrolled more than 15 hours/week, and 5 credits for EC families with children enrolled up to 15 hours/week. If a family has students in both K-12 and EC, the maximum requirement is limited to 40 credits.

Our Volunteer Coordinators will be happy to match you with volunteer opportunities. Please call the school office for more information.

Families may opt out of the program by paying a buy-out fee at the beginning of the year of $400 for K-12, $100 for EC families with children enrolled more than 15 hours/week, and $50 for EC families with children enrolled up to 15 hours/week. If chosen, this opt-out fee must be paid by June 1st or within 30 days of enrollment, whichever is later.

Credits will be calculated from June 1st through May 31st each year. Any unserved credits after May 31st of the current school year will be charged at the rate of $15 per credit.

Late Fees

A 1% monthly service fee may be charged on all overdue balances. A balance is considered overdue 30 days after the charge is posted or 30 days after the due date, whichever is later.

Withdrawal Fee

A withdrawal fee ($500 per student for K-12; $150 per student for EC) will be charged for any student withdrawing from TPCS after enrollment/re-enrollment. In addition, prorated tuition will be charged through the end of the month in which notice of withdrawal is received by the TPCS admissions office. If withdrawal occurs prior to the start of classes in August, no prorated tuition will be charged, but the withdrawal fee will apply.

Incidental Expenses

Expenses generally not covered by tuition include:

  • Band instruments (5th-12th grades)
  • High school AP or dual-credit course fees
  • Middle school retreats or out-of-town field trips
  • Athletic fees
  • Lunch fees
  • Before & After School Care
  • Club fees
  • Yearbook
  • Lost or damaged library books or textbooks
  • Lost or damaged school-provided Chromebooks or chargers
  • Transportation costs for high school J-term trips (although note that the high school J-Term trip ground cost is included in tuition)

 

These types of expenses will be posted to your FACTS Incidental Fees account as they are incurred and will be due within 30 days or by the specified due date, whichever is later.

Non-Payment of Tuition Fees

If tuition or fees are outstanding at the end of any grading period, report cards will not be issued and records will not be released to any other school until full payment is received.  All tuition must be paid in full as accrued during the school year.  Any student with an outstanding balance from a prior year will not be allowed to start classes the following year.  During the school year, any student with a balance more than 45 days past due may not be allowed to attend classes and may be dismissed from TPCS.  Persons assuming financial responsibility for a student will be responsible for any attorney or collection fees in the event past due balances are turned over to collection.

International Students

Please note: We require students to arrive in the USA with a Debit Card carrying a balance of at least $1,000 US to pay for any personal expenses during the school year.

Tuition & Fees: We require a non-refundable tuition deposit of $5,000 per student, which is part of the total tuition. Tuition includes administrative oversight, TPCS orientation, events, ESL, tutoring, athletic and club fees, any testing administered at Traders Point, medical insurance, and academic and personal support.

Room & Board: Includes all housing and host family meals and transportation to and from school daily. 

Annual total cost per student, including boarding: $29,500

Note: Traders Point Christian Schools will consider enrolling students younger than 7th grade; however we do not provide boarding for any international student younger than 7th grade. International families enrolling such a student should plan to live with their student locally. Since boarding is not required, the annual total cost per student would be less than what is listed above.  the total cost will vary depending on the grade level of the student.  Please contact admissions@tpcs.org for more specific information.
