TUITION & FEES
New students must submit a non-refundable application fee of $50 with a completed enrollment application.
Upon acceptance, a student must pay a non-refundable registration fee. To secure placement for the coming year, a student must satisfy all financial obligations, including the presentation of proof of awarded scholarships and the payment of all applicable fees, including application, registration, and curriculum fees.
When a student's monthly installment payments are scheduled to begin in June, the student may include the curriculum fee as part of the 11-month payment plan. Otherwise, a student's curriculum fees are due in full no later than June 30. Seats are considered forfeited by all students who fail to pay or make arrangements to pay the curriculum fee by June 30.

Children of City of Life Church members are eligible for a discount on the above rates. A "member" is defined as an adult who has attended a church membership class at least six months prior to registration and who actively supports City of Life Church through regular church attendance, involvement, and consistent financial contributions.
Monthly tuition payments are collected through SMART (the SMART Management Company), a separately incorporated tuition management company, which COLCA utilizes to manage the school's tuition payments. When a parent establishes an account with SMART on behalf of a student, the company will charge the parent an annual fee of $46. Then SMART will deduct the agreed upon monthly payment on either the 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th of each month, beginning in June and concluding in April. COLCA's Admissions Department will assist parents in completing a SMART agreement to cover the monthly tuition payments.
Students who rely on an external scholarship for the payment of tuition and fees may not attend classes until the COLCA Admissions Department receives proof that the scholarship has been awarded and all financial arrangements with the school are completed. The student's seat is not reserved until all financial obligations are met. Students Enrolling Late (after June 30th)
Installment payments for the school year are made from June through April. Consequently, all application, registration, and curriculum fees are due immediately when a student enrolls after June 30. Additionally, a portion of the annual tuition will become due immediately when a student enrolls late. Students cannot attend classes without satisfying these requirements.
Additional ExpensesAll students are required to purchase uniforms. There are additional costs associated with graduation (caps and gowns). Other fees apply if a student wishes to purchase class pictures or yearbooks or if a student chooses to participate in missionary trips, the school's lunch program, team sports, field trips, the homecoming dance, the annual high school prom, or Before & After-School Care.
The following scholarships are available to qualifying children who attend City of Life Christian Academy. For information regarding these scholarship programs and for instructions on how to apply, please visit the website of the applicable scholarship.
