Registration Information

We realize that it takes a great deal of research, forethought, and prayer to release your child to the care and teaching of another person. The mind of your child is very precious, and we are aware of the great responsibility you have entrusted to us. Not only will we be striving to give your child the best possible academic program, we will also be aware of the importance of being good Christian role models to your child. At all times, we will treat your child with respect, kindness, love, and good humor, and we expect all children to treat each other and adults in the same manner.

Tuition & Fees

At registration, a non-refundable fee of $75 is due, and one month’s tuition fee is required. That tuition payment will be applied to the last month’s tuition (May). This tuition check may be given at registration (postdated for June 1st) or sent to the school by June 1st. May tuition checks will be deposited on June 15th.

Tuition may be paid by the month, the semester, or the year. Tuition payments are due on the first of each month and are delinquent after the tenth of that month. A $15 late fee will be applied after the tenth. Failure to pay overdue tuition after two months will result in dismissal of your child. We do not accept cash. All payments to the school must be by check or money order. There will be a $20 fee on all returned checks. There is a locked cash box available in the office for tuition payments. Please walk into the office and deposit your tuition in that box.

Nacogdoches Christian Academy plans its expenditures annually based on the summation of annual, individual student tuition. The vast majority of expenditures are one-time or annual commitments (such as curriculum materials or salaries) and cannot be adjusted after the start of the school year. Therefore, by sending a student to Nacogdoches Christian Academy, parents/guardians are committing to pay the full annual tuition, regardless of attendance. Parents/Guardians may petition the School Board for reimbursement due to unique and/or unforeseen circumstances.

Scholarship applications are available in the office to any current or prospective student. A new scholarship application must be submitted for every school year. The current year’s Income Tax Return must be turned in by May 1st before the Scholarship Committee meets.

The tuition tables below show the monthly tuition for 10 months (Aug. – May). All registration fees (due at registration) and the last month’s tuition (due on June 1st) are non-refundable.

Families with more than 1 student attending Nacogdoches Christian Academy are eligible for a Multiple Student Discount. In calculation discounts, children’s tuition will be ranked from highest to lowest, with the lesser tuition(s) receiving a 10% discount.
