Monthly Installments and FACTS
All families selecting the monthly installment payment plan must have a FACTS account (click here for details). FACTS payment service, which acquired RenWeb, will impose a $45 fee per account. Annual and semi-annual plans will not be charged this fee.
An annual registration/enrollment fee of $500 per student is due with the enrollment contract for students in preschool, kindergarten, and grades 1-8.
Lower and Middle School students may choose to bring a lunch from home or purchase a hot lunch at school. Lunch is included in Preschool and Kindergarten tuition.
Parent-Initiated Withdrawal Date
The student's official last day of school at Cornerstone Academy will be based either on the date the Front Office receives the withdrawal notice or if mailed in or emailed, the date post marked on the envelope or the date email was sent.
Early Withdrawal Fee (last revised 2020-2021)
Effective immediately on the first day of school for all grade levels (Preschool-8th grade) for the entire school year, all parent-initiated student withdrawal(s) are subject to a $1500 withdrawal fee per student. The fee is necessary because the school has made salary commitments to school employees and the school has purchased student resources based on the fact the student will be enrolled for the entire school year. The withdrawal fee will only be waived if the school receives an official written withdrawal letter by Monday, 8/10/2020, 12:00pm (PST).
No withdrawal notification (to waive early withdrawal fee) will be accepted on Tuesday, 8/11/2020. A phone call to the school does not constitute notice of a student withdrawal.
All payments for school lunches, field trips, and all paid school electives (in-school or afterschool; such as dance, piano, tutoring programs, and future offerings) are non-refundable and non-transferable (even in parent or school-initiated withdrawals).
Delinquent/Past Due Account
Account is considered delinquent/past due if outstanding balance is NOT PAID IN FULL by the due date indicated on the statement notification from Cornerstone Academy. Delinquent/past due accounts will be subject to late payment fee of $30 each month until balance is paid in full. If the parent(s)/guardian(s) make no effort to contact or make arrangements with the school, the student will be dropped from enrollment and a collection agency will be notified.
Late pickup: $10.00 per 15 minutes (last revised 2018-2019)
Returned EFT / Returned check: $30 per FACTS ACH transaction or check
Holiday/Summer Extended Care: $50 per day (7am-6pm). May be offered on weeks when K-8 is not in session, but preschool is in session. Subject to cancellation if a minimum of 15 students do not register.
