In addition to tuition, the Book, Supply and Technology Usage fee is used to equip classrooms, provide student and teacher materials, support curricular enhancements and improve instructional technology. This fee includes rental and usage of textbooks and equipment (which remain the property of CCS). It also covers lab fees, software licenses, weekly readers, consumables, supplies, enrichment, student admittance to home games and standardized academic achievement tests. Also included in this fee, we will provide all your classroom supplies (craft material, field trip shirt, lunchroom supplies, printing supplies, cleaning supplies, lab fees) and school supplies (binders, planners, paper). This convenience allows us to buy at a savings and keeps you from having to shop for these items individually.
It does not cover individual sports equipment, private lessons, field trip costs, tournaments and competition fees.
This fee cannot be discounted and is not covered by any financial aid offered.
The Book & Supply fee is nonrefundable whether it is paid in advance of a school year or rolled into monthly tuition payments, unless a student is withdrawn before June 1st of any upcoming school year. This fee is due regardless of when a student registers and is payable to CCS as we make staffing and early curriculum purchases, etc. based on your enrollment. If you are registered and elect to withdraw anytime after June 1st you are responsible for this fee for each child.
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth...For where your treasure is there your heart will be also." Matt. 6:19,21
There are 3 components included in the total price of enrollment: (1) Registration fee (2) Tuition and (3) Book, Supply & Technology Fee
Fee schedules are subject to change yearly. Fees will not change mid-year.
Tuition can be paid yearly or in monthly installments. Monthly payments can be spread over 12 months beginning June 1st (or over 10 months beginning August 1st). We are pleased to offer you a convenient, online method to enroll for your payment plan with FACTS ManagementCo. which manages monthly billing for CCS. You will be given the option of paying on the 5th or the 20th of each month. Enrollment with FACTS must be completed at least 14 days prior to your first payment date. (Example: If you choose the 5th as your due date you will need to finalize this with FACTS by July 17) If you want to enroll on the 12 month payment plan to reduce your monthly payment, you will have to enroll by May 17th.) It will be required that our families enroll with FACTS if they choose to pay by installments. Therefore, AFTER you have paid registration fees AND received a letter of acceptance, you will need to enroll with FACTS and choose a billing option. There is an annual fee to FACTS of $41 or $45 depending on which option you choose. Any questions? please contact the school at 256-734-0734 or FACTS Management Co. at 866-441-4637.

Tuition Financing-Understanding that your child's education is an investment, several options are available:
Since 2018, college savings 529 plans can be used to pay for private school from elementary school onward. This option allows up to $10,000 annual tax-free 529 account (such as Alabama CollegeCounts Fund) withdrawals to pay your CCS tuition.
In addition, we have made arrangements with several local bankers to make tuition loans available to our parents with payments over 10 months.
Also, private school's tuition, like CCS, qualify for Coverdale IRA and tax-deferred educational savings plans. Unused balances can be kept for college expenses. Grandparents too can open or deposit to these accounts.
