UCA Tuition Schedule 2017-2018

* VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
The school board has developed a tuition pricing plan that will incorporate a 25% tuition reduction for all families who are willing to become a cooperative family. A cooperative family offers some assistance back to the school by taking on one or more jobs. (See all job listings here.) A family who attends UCA without out taking on any job functions from the available list of jobs would simply pay the regular tuition rates without any reduction. Please note that only the jobs that are officially listed will carry with them a reduction in tuition.

Registration Fees for all students attending UCA:
First Child - $50 anually
Second Child - $40 annually
Third Child - $30 annually 
Fourth Child and up - No charge
Online registration due by July 10th. Actual registration fees due by August 1st but can be paid at the parent teacher meeting.  (A late fee of $10 will be applied to late registrations.)


Academic Tuition Breakdown (Use this rate if your child takes any academic classes at UCA)
Basic Tuition (Includes One Child  / One Class) -  $95 per month
Each Additional Child (Includes One Class) - $33 per month
Each Additional Class (academics/electives) - $24 per month [for choir add $5]

Elective Only Tuition Breakdown (Electives Rates are for students taking ONLY Choir, Drama,
and/or Yearbook.) 
Basic Elective Only Tuition (Includes One Child / One Class) - $68 per month [for choir add $5]
Each Additional Child (Includes One Class) - $33 per month [for choir add $5]
Each Additional Elective Class - $24 per month [for choir add $5]

Elementary Enrichment Tuition Breakdown (For students in 7th grade and below taking enrichment)
$81 per month if your elementary student is your first child enrolled at UCA
$66 per month if your elementary student is your second child enrolled at UCA
$59 per month if your elementary student is your third child enrolled at UCA
$52 per month if your elementary student is your fourth child enrolled at UCA
(These rates include all elementary enrichment classes, but please add $24 for any additional academic classes.)

Tuition Notes:
Tuition can be paid monthly by postdating nine monthly checks and giving those to the treasurer prior to (or on) the first day of school.  All checks should be dated for the 15th of each month. After a student begins school, dropping out before Christmas would mean a refund of only the second semester's tuition would be given.  If the child drops out in the second semester, or after he/she returns from the Christmas break, there would be no refund of tuition.

Financial Assistance:
If anyone needs financial assistance for next year, the best way to achieve that is to help out in some capacity at school.  We have several possible venues for parents and/or students who would like to help out to reduce their tuition.  Please contact Jeremy Counts at 615-485-2116 if you are interested.

Sports Tuition Breakdown:
A student participating in sports only needs to be registered and enrolled at UCA and take at least one class.  There is not a requirement on what class he/she would need to take, it could be either an academic or an elective.  In addition, any child participating in sports will need to pay their annual sports dues, as well as purchase any needed uniforms.  The sports dues are payable prior to their first game being played.  

2018-2019 Annual Projected Sports rates:
Varsity Basketball, Volleyball, and Soccer  - 
$190/year + $45 for uniforms if needed ($55 for basketball uniforms)

Middle School Basketball, Volleyball, and Soccer -
