COME FOR A VISIT!
Covenant Christian Academy offers tours by appointment and information packets upon request. Our Office Hours are Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Application and Testing
The admissions process includes an appointment with the principal, pre-entrance testing and an application packet. Parents should bring copies of report cards, achievement test results, etc. We have a readiness testing for kindergarten and a placement confirmation testing for other grades. All applications are made to the governing authority of CCA, who reserves the right to accept or reject any application. The admission procedures include the submission of a written application form with the application fee, an application review, a family interview, payment of the registration fee, and testing to enable the administration to make a responsible decision. The principal will use the information to assess the student's academic aptitude and to identify potential problems. There is an application and testing fee. This fee is due at the time of the testing and is non-refundable (unless the student is not accepted).
If an applicant is unable to keep a scheduled appointment time or is running late, please contact the school immediately so alternate arrangements can be made. Applicants that do not show up for their scheduled appointment, will be marked as a "No-Show" and may be refused future appointments.
After testing and the initial appointment, applications are reviewed and parents are notified of the results. The review process will determine entrance or rejection of all applicants. If the applicant is accepted, the next step of the process is registration.
Only the authorized guardian of a potential student may apply for admission to CCA. An authorized guardian is defined as a person who meets the current IRS criteria to claim the applicant as a dependent on their current federal tax return. Proof of the parents/guardian's compliance with this requirement may be requested by CCA at any time. This requirement must be met as a condition of continued enrollment and serves as the basis for qualification for multiple child discounts and financial aid.
It is desired that both parents profess their faith in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. However, at least one of the two parents must have a saving faith in Jesus Christ and attend a local church on a regular basis. (John 3:3,1; 1 Peter 1:23). All applicants who are accepted are done so on a six-week trial basis.
The registration process begins after acceptance of applicant. Covenant Christian Academy will request academic and health records from previous schools. We set up transportation arrangements for bussing and initiate a permanent file for the student. There is a registration fee. This fee is charged to reserve a place in class for the student and establish student files. Parents of kindergarten children must provide a copy of the birth certificate and an up-to-date immunization record or state exemption waiver. A child must be five years old by October 1st to be eligible for kindergarten in September. All students admitted to the school will be expected to perform at or above grade level, attend school regularly and submit to school policy and regulations.
For new students, this fee is due when you're notified that the child is accepted. Returning students should include the registration fee with their re-enrollment form. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.
All students admitted to the school will be expected to perform at or above grade level, attend school regularly and submit to school policy and regulations.
Tuition and Fees
Parents will sign a financial commitment form at the time of acceptance. It is expected that parents enrolling their children will meet their financial obligation to Covenant Christian Academy (CCA) of the Lehigh Valley by paying tuition and fees on time. If monthly payments are chosen, Covenant Christian Academy uses a local bank, ESSA, for the direct debiting of payments. Parents may also pay in person at the bank. There is a separate book bill, and the books become the property of the family. As stated above, there is an application/testing fee and a registration fee.
There is a book fee, charged per student, to cover the textbooks and workbooks a student will need during the school year. Book fees are due by July 1st.
Please feel free to call our office for current fee and tuition amounts.
Covenant Christian Academy reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant and/or to discontinue enrollment of a student.
