Continuous Enrollment 

Last year, nearly 90% of all eligible King’s Way families returned to school for the current year. Continuous enrollment simply means that a seat is reserved for your child through graduation. Once your continuous enrollment contract has been signed and submitted, you will never have to go through the re-enrollment process again. Your continuous enrollment contract renews automatically each year until your child graduates, or if necessary, until you choose to opt out. More FAQ’s can be found here.

Continuous Enrollment FAQ's
  • What is Continuous Enrollment?
    Continuous Enrollment (CE) is a process in which a student’s enrollment is automatically renewed each year with a small “down payment” on each child’s tuition for the following school year. This continuous enrollment down payment will not only reserve your child’s place in class for the next year, it will also assist KWCS administration in effectively planning for staffing and curriculum. Traditionally, King’s Way has been unable to solidify staffing, programs, materials, or curriculum until families sign and submit their re-enrollment contracts. We take the stewardship of tuition dollars entrusted to us every year very seriously. We want to invest these tuition dollars wisely so that we can provide the best education possible for our students.
  • Why Continuous Enrollment?
    Continuous Enrollment (CE) not only simplifies your life, it allows KW to better fulfill our purpose and mission in the lives of our students. You will no longer have to opt-in for re-enrollment; rather re-enrollment will now be an opt-out process. In other words, once you sign your one-time Continuous Enrollment Agreement, you will never have to worry about it again.
  • Is there a Continuous Enrollment payment collected?
    Yes. Beginning February, 2021, a Continuous Enrollment Deposit (CED) will be applied annually to your SMART TUITION account. This amount is subtracted from your child’s total yearly tuition. If you opt out after your payment has been drawn, your tuition deposit is non-refundable.
  • What if we’re not sure what we’re doing the following year?
    Each year, parents will have an opt- out period between January 1 and January 31. If you decide that your child will not be returning for the following school year, you simply log into Blackbaud and fill out the opt-out contract, indicating your child’s intent to not return prior to the deadline. You will not be charged the CED. If you opt out after your payment has been drawn, your tuition deposit is non-refundable. Should you wish to re-enroll after you have opted out, the $50 New Student Application Fee will be applied. 
  • What about unique circumstances? I am planning on keeping my children at KWCS through graduation, but what if God has other plans for my family?
    We’ve built flexibility into this contract. So, for major life changes/unique circumstances like not qualifying for variable tuition, if KWCS can no longer meet your child’s educational needs, or if there is some unforeseen circumstance that our Superintendent approves, there will be no financial penalty.
  • How do families benefit from Continuous Enrollment?
    We have created a simple and efficient process for our families that saves you time. In addition, with increasing enrollment, we anticipate our classrooms being near waitlists for some of our grades; by opting into CE, you’ll have a seat for your child until graduation.
WITHDRAWAL Information
  • If a student is withdrawn from KWCS after the first tuition draft, but before the first day of school, any payments submitted will not be refunded; however, no withdrawal fees will apply.
  • If a student is withdrawn from KWCS after the first day of school, any tuition payments submitted will not be refunded, and a 10% withdrawal fee of the remaining year’s tuition will be charged.

Enrollment Policy
  • King’s Way students will be continuously enrolled through the completion of Grade 12, or, if necessary until the student chooses to opt-out.
  • A Continuous Enrollment Deposit (CED) is applied to every students account upon submission of the application/re-enrollment contract.
  • Continuous Enrollment Deposits (CED) are non-refundable. The exception to this policy is granted only if space is not available, or if the application is denied; then the deposit, less $50, will be refunded.
  • If tuition and/or lunch accounts for the current year have become delinquent by June 1, the CED paid toward the next school year will be forfeited as well as the student’s place on the class roster.
  • The first month’s tuition payment is due in July. If the first payment is not received in July, the student’s application will be withdrawn and his/her position on the class roster will be forfeited.
  • Tuition payment due dates. See tuition chart above for payment options. A $40.00 late fee will be assessed on all accounts not paid within 10 days of the selected due date.
  • A returned check fee of $25 will be charged for NSF checks.
  • If tuition is past due at the end of the school year, official transcripts will be withheld and not transferred until the account is brought current.
  • If a student is withdrawn from school after the first day of school, a 10% withdrawal fee for the remaining tuition balance will be assessed to the family.

 

Ways to pay your Student's Bill
  • Use your Smart Account to make payments. Pay online with credit/debit or bank account (a 3% convenience fee is added if you use credit/debit).
