VIEWS: 4 PAGES: 18

									Dear Parent,

Hello! Thank you for your interest in Alpha Christian Academy. As an
outreach-ministry of First Christian Church of Winter Park, we believe
every child deserves a great beginning from Preschool through 8th grade in
a loving Christian environment. Our mission is to partner with parents and
the church in laying a strong academic and spiritual foundation built on a
Christian worldview.

At Alpha Christian Academy your child’s academic education and
spiritual growth is important to us and we support you in your endeavor to
fulfill your biblical responsibility. We have chosen to use the A-Beka
curriculum which is an accelerated and educationally challenging
curriculum. We have carefully hired qualified faculty who are prepared to
teach your child academically and share the love of Christ on a daily basis.
Our vision is that the children placed in our care will develop a personal
relationship with Jesus Christ and in turn, grow and mature to loving God
with all their heart, mind and soul. Daily we strive to assist your child in
developing intellectually to their fullest potential with Biblical standards
that will one day assist them in becoming productive and responsible
citizens.

Please contact the school office at (407)647-4222 if you have any
questions or would like to schedule a tour of our facilities.

May God bless your family and guide you as you consider Alpha as your
child’s future school.

In Christ’s Service,


Tara Newman

                             Statement of Cooperation
I agree to support and adhere to the following policies and financial arrangements:
1. Each child will be required to purchase designated uniforms. Boy’s hair will be no longer than
   collar length and must be neatly trimmed; also, no earrings. Girl’s no long earrings are permitted
   due to health and safety reasons.

2. You agree to support the Discipline Policy implemented by Alpha and enforced by all teachers
   and the School Administrator.

3.    In regard to health, parents will be notified to pick-up a child suspected of having a
     communicable disease or develops a temperature of 100 .1 as well as any other signs or
     symptoms which include, but are not limited to, any of the following: vomiting, diarrhea, rash,
     pink eye, head lice or skin infection. The child shall not return until the signs or symptoms are no
     longer present. Also, no medication will be dispensed without written direction from a physician,
     duly signed, dated and with parent’s written consent. Medication shall only be administered by a
     teacher or aide. If a child has a food allergy, it is the responsibility of the parent to provide for
     that need. If a child is well enough to attend school, they should be well enough to go outside for
     physical activity, unless there is written direction from a parent or physician, duly signed and
     dated.

4. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide the school with updated information as it relates to
   health records, emergency contacts, change of address, change of telephone numbers and those
   approved to pick-up your child.

5. Tuition is based on 180 days of education and is divided into ten equal payments. It is due the
   1st of each month, beginning August 1st and continuing through May 1st. Tuition is considered
   late after the 10th and will be assessed a $20.00 late fee (strictly enforced). A second $20.00 late
   fee is charged if the balance is still not paid by the 20 th of the month. Students may not continue
   to attend the Academy if accounts fall more than one month in arrears. Tuition may also be paid
   annually. Monthly tuition payments are due regardless of absence due to illness, vacation, etc. If
   a student does not attend ACA or withdraws during the school year parents will be responsible
   for all fees and tuition accrued through the month in which the student is withdrawn.

6. No records, transcripts, or report cards will be released until all accounts have been made
   current. None of the aforementioned items will be released to other institutions without the
   parent’s written permission. All files are kept confidential.

7. Extended care students should arrive no earlier than 7:00a.m. and must be picked up no later
   than 6:00 p.m. If students remain at school beyond 6:00pm parents will be charged $1.00 per
