PHCA: K-12 + Preschool
There is a cost associated with all types of education. Some costs are financial, others are not so tangible. It is definitely a sacrifice for some families to send their children to a Christian school, but parents must keep the end result of their child's education in perspective when considering the cost.
Descriptions and details of each of the required costs of your child's education at Plaza Heights Christian Academy are outlined below, but to see a simple chart of costs, please click on one of the two links below:
A variety of payment plans are available. All payments must be completed by April of the current school year and are due on the 15th of the month. A late fee of $20 will be assessed for any monthly tuition payment received after the 25th of the month. Any family that falls behind more than one month will be withdrawn from school. There will be a $20 fee assessed for any returned check. We reserve the right to place an account on automatic draft to ensure prompt monthly payments.
In the case of a withdrawal from PHCA (Preschool-12th grade), a full month’s tuition is due for any partial month that the student attended. Accounts must be paid in full before records will be released or transferred.
It is the desire of the school board that the opportunity of a Christian education be available to anyone who desires it. To that end, we have contracted with SMART AID for Student Tuition to determine if a family qualifies for financial assistance. Click HERE to apply online for Financial Aid through SMART AID.

We also offer discounts to families with more than one child attending PHCA. Families in full-time ministry of an evangelical church, and those who are full-time ministerial students are also given a discount.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All fees are non-refundable and must be paid before any discounts can be applied to tuition.
Application Fee: (non-refundable)
A one-time application fee is for students making first-time application to the school. This fee must accompany the application.
Enrollment Fee: (non-refundable)
For new families, the enrollment fee is due within two weeks of acceptance but not later than the first day of classes. The enrollment fee for returning families is due when the application is submitted.
Book Fee: (non-refundable)
The book fee pays for expendable books such as workbooks and test booklets, reusable textbooks, teacher’s books and classroom curriculum aids. Students may be charged an additional fee for lost books or books that show excesive wear or damage.
Testing, Trips & Activities Fee: (non-refundable)
This fee helps defray costs for labs, field trips, special classroom activities, TerraNova testing and scoring in the spring, etc.
Tuition Management Fee: (non-refundable)
The tuition management fee covers the cost of setting up an account for your family to make monthly payments. A tuition management company maintains all of our accounts and collects on unpaid accounts, which benefits all our families. This fee may be waived if paying in full before the first day of school.
As stated in the Admissions Policy, a child is not considered enrolled until all fees are paid. After July 15th, any spot being held by an enrollment fee only will be considered open to our waiting list.
Monthly tuition payments are due on the 1st, 10th, 15th or 20th of the month. A late fee of $20 will be assessed for any monthly tuition payment received after 10 grace period. Any family that falls behind more than one month will be withdrawn from school. If any account is suspended for non-payment, there will be a $25 reinstatement fee charged.
