Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is continuous enrollment?
Continuous Enrollment simply means that when you re-enroll for the 2020/2021 school year you are enrolling from that date until your child graduates, or until you let us know otherwise, by submitting an "Intent to Withdraw Form".
Q: Will I see changes to the re-enrollment process THIS year?
The only change you will see this year is that you will be signing the Continuous Enrollment Agreement as you complete your recommitment/re-enrollment packet. After attending a Momentum meeting, you will receive an email to let you know when it is time to complete the recommitment packet in the FACTS Family Portal for your student(s). This will be the last time you sign an enrollment agreement. If these steps are not completed by February 28th, the Enrollment Fee increases by $50 per student.
Q: What happens during the 2020/2021 and future enrollment seasons?
In future years, tuition and fees will be announced at the annual Momentum Meeting as usual. The difference is that you do not have to complete the online re-enrollment forms again! Your student is already enrolled for the following year, and your Enrollment Fee will be processed via FACTS on March 15th. If your child will not be returning for the next academic year, you will need to submit an "Intent to Withdraw Form" by February 28th to avoid owing the Enrollment Fee.
Q: What if someone else pays my student's enrollment fee? Can they pay by check instead me paying through my FACTS account?
Yes, enrollment fees can be paid by check from someone else and it will simply be applied to your FACTS balance. However, due dates still apply so the check must be received by March 10th so that it can be posted in time to avoid the automatic withdrawal.
Q: What about policy and tuition changes?
Policies are detailed in our handbook, which can be found on the school website. Tuition will be announced at annual Momentum Meetings in late January / early February and published on the website prior to the February 28th Intent to Withdrawal deadline. It is the parents’ responsibility to review the handbook for any policy changes.
Q: What if we don't know yet if we're returning and need more time?
In future years, submit the "Intent to Withdraw Form" by February 28th to avoid paying an Enrollment Fee. You may re-enroll later, if there is space available. Re-enrolling after the deadline will be subject to the increased Enrollment Fee of $200.
Q: If my child is continuously enrolled, can the school choose to unenroll my child?
Yes, Cole Valley Christian Schools continues to reserve the right to withdraw a student at any time due to student performance or behavior issues - or if families have delinquent financial obligations.
