Wimbish Adventist School operates its budget on two main sources of income: registration & tuition fees, and charitable donations.
An earnest effort is being made to keep the cost of attendance as low as possible while at the same time maintaining the highest levels of quality and professionalism in our educational program. Our goal is to make Christian education an opportunity available for everyone.
Although the cost does involve some degree of financial sacrifice, it is our belief that the future dividends will be far greater in value than the investments.
Registration Fee: $400.00 per student, $50.00 of which is due at the time of application and is considered a non-refundable processing fee. The remainder is due July 1st. The registration fee covers textbook rental, library materials, insurance, and purchase of consumable items, such as art supplies, etc. No student will be permitted to start school without the registration fee being paid in full.
Late Registration: $25.00 (This fee is charged to all students enrolling after the first day of school).
1st child. $425 /month
2 children $800 /month
3 children $1050/month
1. Tuition payments are based on ten months beginning in August and ending in May. Payments are due on the 1st of each month, with August tuition due on or before the first day of school.
2. Payments not received by the 10th of the month will be considered overdue and a $20.00 late fee will be added. If an account become 30 days overdue, a meeting must be scheduled with the school board to establish a plan to bring the account current. Delinquent accounts in excess of 60 days will result in the student not allowed back into class, and the account may be turned over to a collection agency. Checks returned for “insufficient funds” will be assessed a $25.00 returned check fee.
3. A 5% tuition discount will be given if registration fees and the entire year’s tuition are paid in full at the time of registration.
4. Accounts must be paid in full at the end of each semester in order for the student to take final exams and/or receive final grades, march at graduation, send transcripts to another Adventist school, or register for the new year.
Requests for Tuition Assistance
Parents who have a real desire for Christian education for their children, but whose circumstances are such that they need financial assistance, should contact a member of the finance committee (school board chair, treasurer, teacher, or pastor) to obtain a financial aid application. Applicants will be requested to provide the previous year’s tax return and current family budget. Students receiving financial assistance must maintain a C average and a good attendance record.
Parents who are members of other churches should discuss with their pastor the possibility of their home church providing financial assistance.
A total financial plan and payment schedule must be worked out prior to registration.
In addition to financial tuition Wimbish Adventist School requires that each family contribute 8 hours per Quarter to the school. This can consist of several things: field trips, chores, helping with programs or fund raisers, etc. Many of you will easily fulfill this requirement as you already contribute more than 8 hours per quarter.
You may choose to buy out of the 8 hours for a charge of $25.00 per quarter. You may also get a grandparent, aunt, etc. to fulfill the requirement.
Eight hours may be done during the summer, before school starts. See Mrs. Fillman if you have any questions.
