1. Applications will begin to be accepted in late January of each school year. A $150.00 nonrefundable registration fee must accompany all student applications.
2. Interviews with new families and the screening of new students will be scheduled during the months of March through April and as needed thereafter.
3. The application process is delineated on the Application for Admission. Please refer to it for more detailed instructions. Briefly, the admission process requires the following:
Completed Application for Admission
- Registration fee of $150; for multiple registrations, this fee will not exceed $400 per family
- Copies of standardized test scores and report cards from the past two years
- Birth certificate (for Kindergarten students only)
- Copy of updated immunization record
- Signed Parental Contract
- Student screening/testing (scheduled with school office)
- Parent/family interview (scheduled with school office)
4. When a student is accepted, a non-refundable resource fee of $500 for Kindergarten through Eleventh Grade is due within two weeks of acceptance. A non-refundable lab fee of $35 is also required for Ninth through Eleventh Grade students.
5. The admission process is not considered final until the following items are complete:
- Tuition paid in full or a completed automatic bank draft form
- Records from child’s previous school are received
- Health form is completed by child’s physician and received in the office
- Emergency contact form is completed and turned-in to the office
6. The headmaster will determine final acceptance and grade level placement of students.
7. Parents will receive written notification of the decision regarding acceptance of the child.
8. Student enrollment is contracted for the entire school year. Once the admission process is complete, it is expected that the parents will fulfill their monetary obligations to the school regardless of whether the child completes the school year or not. RCCA hires teachers based upon the number of students enrolled. The loss of a student due to disciplinary problems, transfer of parents, sickness, etc., does not remove the school’s requirement to pay the teacher. Therefore, we require the parent to obligate themselves for the entire school year. Exceptions to this policy will be considered when submitted in writing before the beginning of the school year.
9. Parents agree to support the policies of the school as affirmed in the Parental Contract and in the Student-Parent Handbook.
10. The headmaster has the authority to deny a student re-enrollment for the following school year. Denial of re-enrollment is not a direct disciplinary act, nor is it the equivalent of suspension or expulsion. It is an action done, in the opinion of the headmaster, for the benefit of the child and/or other enrolled student.
Explanation of Terms:
Corporation Membership – We require at least one parent be a Christian. As concerned parents of students at RCCA we would expect you to have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of RCCA. This understanding implies a willingness to have your child exposed to the Christian teachings innumerate in the school’s Statement of Faith. Parents should be willing to cooperate with all the written policies of RCCA. This becomes crucial in the area of discipline, schoolwork standards and active communication with the respective teacher.
Current Immunization Record – North Carolina requires all students attending any school to have on record either a current immunization record or an exemption statement. Kindergarten students must have a completed Health Assessment Report on file before the first day of school. This form may be obtained from your family doctor or the school office.
Emergency Medical Contact Form – RCCA will not dispense non-prescription medicine (e.g., Tylenol, Tums, etc.) or prescription medicines without written parental permission on file. Prescription medicines must be accompanied by a signed doctor’s permission. The written parental permission for prescription medicines must contain specific directions to the teacher. In regard to students who require Epipens, the school will need the following: Epi-pen storage location, a list of individuals approved to administer, parental instructions including a medical action plan, and a signed waiver.
