Available Tuition Discounts
Williamsburg Christian Academy realizes that tuition at our school can sometimes pose a financial burden on prospective and enrolled families. In order to help families offset the costs of tuition to hopefully bring their total costs into the scope of their budget, there are a number of ways that current families or new families to the school can save on annual tuition through available discounts, which are listed below:
Pastoral Family Discount: WCA desires to partner with churches and ministry organizations in our community. We offer a tuition discount for full-time Christian ordained ministers employed as a minister by a local ministry or church. The minister must be a parent or legal guardian of the student to qualify. The discount applies to tuition only; the minister must complete the Application for Christian Minister’s Discount to determine qualification.
Full-Time Employed First Responders and Active Duty Military Personnel Discount: WCA desires to honor those who are serving our communities and Nation to keep us safe by offering a 15% discount for their service.

Family Referral: A $500 discount will be applied to your tuition statement for any family you refer to WCA and who is enrolled for at least one school year. To be eligible for the referral discount, you must be identified by the referred student’s family at the time of their WCA application for enrollment. The discount is applied to your account when the referred enrolled family’s student(s) begins their second semester at WCA.
Early Enrollment Discount: Enroll your student(s) for the upcoming school year before March 1 to avoid the new school year tuition increases (Tuition only). Early enrollment will allow you to pay tuition at the 2018/2019 published tuition rates. To qualify for this discount, your current tuition account must be financially current, and a minimum per-student payment of $500 for Preschool and a minimum payment of $600 for grades K – 12. must be paid in full before March 1.

Families with multiple students enrolled will have a maximum required payment of $1,000 to be paid in full before March 1. The balance of the fees must be paid in accordance with the Fee Schedule Policy.
Your family may qualify for multiple discounts; however, combined discounts may not exceed 25% of your student’s total tuition costs. All discounts apply to tuition only. If at any time, your student withdraws from WCA before completing the school year, these discounts are subject to revocation and will be charged back to your student’s tuition account.
In addition to discounts, families that can meet means-testing for assistance may also be available for financial aid. For more info on our available financial aid, click here.
