Withdrawal Fee

It is assumed that a family is enrolling for the entire year and budgets are set accordingly. If a student is withdrawn before the end of the school year, a 2 week advanced written notice should be given to the office. Because tuition is paid on an eleven month period, families are expected to pay the current month’s tuition plus an additional 1 months tuition. Report cards and/or transcripts are released to the parent or other schools only when the student’s financial account is current. Special Note: Families who have paid the year in advance will pay the current months tuition plus 2 months tuition. (First and last month).

Financial Aid & Assistance

Central Christian School is committed to providing a quality Christian education and instilling godly character in each and every student. We understand the financial committment that a family makes when they choose private or Christian education. Central’s goal is to partner with families who have financial needs. Therefore, a limited amount of financial assistance is available to qualifying applicants.

Financial assistance and aid recommendations are made by FACTS “Grant and Aid Assessment”, an independent company which provides Central with a confidential financial needs report. This report assists the Scholarship Committee in determining the amount of tuition assistance granted. Assistance covers between 10% and 50% of tuition and does not cover any fees. Financial assistance is not available to Pre K students.

Currently, the majority of our financial assistance is provided through our Student Scholarship Organization, GOAL. Through this program, Georgia tax payers can redirect Georgia income tax dollars to eligible Georgia private and Christian schools. The state of Georgia has defined parameters as to who is eligible to receive financial assistance. Limited assistance is also available through the Central Foundation (See the link on the web site).

Central welcomes donations of any amount to our unrestricted scholarship fund. Your financial gifts would be a tax deductible contribution and would make a tremendous impact on a student’s life.
