While a worthwhile investment in the growth and well-being of a child, tuition for private schools can be very expensive. We are grateful that the Ohio Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the Toledo First Adventist Church, as well as private donors, subsidize our tuition so that our costs can remain relatively low.
Tuition Rates Per Child Enrolled, Grades K-8: $4,000 (2020-2021 rate)
Ten percent of total tuition (or of your portion, if a scholarship recipient) is due before the first day of school in August and on the 15th of each month thereafter, through May, totaling 10 monthly payments.
All parents much sign a tuition contract indicating their compliance with the financial policies. The registration fee and first month's tuition must be agreed upon by the principal and treasurer and indicated on the tuition contract.
Non-Refundable Tuition and Fees:
A non-refundable fee of $225.00 for all grade levels is due at registration. Any prepaid tuition amounts for students leaving at any point in the school year are not refundable. Monthly tuition amounts for students who withdraw with a balance due will not be pro-rated. It is imperative that your account is kept current to ensure that the daily programs of the school run smoothly and efficiently. Registration fees paid in monthly installments are not eligible for the reduced early registration rate.
A $25 charge will be assessed for all checks returned due to insufficient funds.
Past Due Accounts
If an account is two months past due, the person responsible for the account must make satisfactory arrangements for payment or withdraw the student. Report cards, diplomas, and graduation ceremony participation will be denied for students whose accounts and fees are delinquent. A student who has an unpaid balance from the previous school year may not be permitted to re-enroll until full payment is made.
If an account is delinquent and the student no longer attends Toledo Junior Academy, a fee to transfer the record will be added to the unpaid balance.
Financial assistance applications are available to families who qualify. Application forms are available from the school office. We must receive the previous year's 1040 Income Tax Form (a W-2 will not suffice) from each family requesting assistance.
Parents and others can purchase gift cards at face value, and various percentages of the profit from those purchases can be credited toward tuition accounts. The purchaser may choose which students account the amount is applied to. This fundraiser supplements our general budget and can be most successful if parents are involved.
TJA has various activities that may require additional money throughout the school year. These may include field trips (costs will vary), lunches, snacks, class pictures, special projects, yearbook, graduation, 8th-grade class trip, etc.
