WCA Parental Agreement

For All Students:

In assuming the role of the teacher at home, the following guidelines must be followed:

 

  • WCA Parents/Students will read & abide by the WCA Handbook.
  • I understand that as a parent I am responsible for the training of my child/children and will not hold Western Christian Academy responsible for any lack of academic achievement or progress. Therefore, the lack of communication or academic progress may result in expulsion.
  • Students have up to 12 months to complete a year of curriculum or 6 months for a semester.
  • Students are expected to finish one unit per subject approximately every 3 weeks.
  • Check your student’s lesson plan(s) daily either on paper or online to make sure your student is making progress.
  • Due to WCA’s high quality mastery-based philosophy, lessons, quizzes, and tests require a 80% or higher score.
  • Students must do at least one project and/or essay per unit (10 per subject). Others can be skipped if you feel necessary.
  • I understand that I am responsible to purchase any supplies necessary for my student’s projects or labs. Lab kits for four WCA high school science courses are available for purchase on our website. Please call our office if you are considering this option.
  • I understand if I do not complete the Student Update Form before my student’s deadline that an annual registration fee of $150 is required.
  • I understand that a notice of withdrawal or a request for an official transcript must be made in writing or email. The first transcript will be sent free of charge but additional requests will be subject to a $10.00 processing fee.
  • A $25 processing fee is assessed for a non-sufficient funds check, credit or debit card decline, or a stop payment. A $20 late charge is assessed if payment is not received within 15 days of payment due date.
  • Check your email a minimum of twice per week for WCA school communications. Please add these email addresses to your address book or contact list so important communications are not blocked or delivered to spam.:
    • wca@westernchristianacademy.com
    • admissions@westernchristianacademy.com

Students using Parent Teacher booklet program:

  • K-6th grades scores should be reported every nine weeks (the Quarterly Report Form can be mailed, emailed, or faxed).
  • I understand that WCA is not responsible to replace missing items after 10 days from the invoice date, so shipments must be checked immediately upon receipt.
  • I understand that items being returned which are damaged in shipping back to WCA or showing signs of handling will not be accepted for return or credit.
  • I understand that units that require repeating due to a low test score will have an additional cost.
  • Grades will be reported as “Incomplete” for outstanding balances, even if the academic work is complete.
  • I understand that no refunds are given for registration and testing fees.
  • Allow 30 days from receipt of written notice of withdrawal for processing of any of the following tuition refunds:
    • Withdrawal before curriculum is shipped:  Full tuition refund.
    • Withdrawal during 1st month:  The first quarter’s tuition (or 3 monthly payments) is required to cover school transfer labor, online records setup, placement testing, booklet curriculum shipping/handling, and other expenses. Unused materials must be returned to WCA in good condition or there will be an additional charge.
    • Withdrawal during 1st semester:  3-5 months’ tuition is due depending on when the withdrawal request is received by WCA.
    • Withdrawal after 2nd semester begins:  6-10 months’ tuition is due depending on when the withdrawal request is received by WCA.

Students using either Online program:

  • I understand I need to keep my teacher-level password secure from my child to ensure academic integrity. I will not allow my student(s) to learn or access my username or password for any reason. If a student is found to be short-cutting and/or not following WCA procedures, that student will be required to be on a higher level WCA teacher-involved program. This means tuition costs will go up for the remainder of the academic year, plus the Parent will lose access to their teacher-level username and password.
  • Grades will be reported as “Incomplete” for outstanding balances, even if the academic work is complete.
  • I understand that no refunds are given for registration and testing fees.
  • Allow 30 days from receipt of written notice of withdrawal for processing of any of the following tuition refunds:
    • Withdrawal before online curriculum setup:  Full tuition refund.
    • Withdrawal during 1st month:  The first quarter’s tuition (or 3 monthly payments) is required to cover school transfer labor, online records setup, placement testing, online curriculum setup, teacher placement, and other expenses.
    • Withdrawal during 1st semester:  3-5 months’ tuition is due depending on when the withdrawal request is received by WCA.
    • Withdrawal after 2nd semester begins:  6-10 months’ tuition is due depending on when the withdrawal request is received by WCA.
