Transcript Release Policy

All student billing accounts must be paid in full before Heritage Christian School will release academic records/transcripts to another school.

Official transcripts and diplomas will be withheld if a senior’s account has not been paid in full by the last day of their academic year.

Annual Family Commitment Fee (All Returning Students)

The annual family commitment fee of $250 per family is billed each May. When paid, the annual family commitment fee reserves seats for the upcoming school year for each student currently enrolled, and obligates the family to the withdrawal policy should their enrollment plans change. Students who will not be returning for the next school year must notify the Admissions department by completing the withdrawal notification form by March 31. Students who withdraw for the upcoming school year after March 31 will be subject to the withdrawal policy below. The annual family commitment fee is non-refundable.

Withdrawal Policy & Fees

It is our desire to remain fiscally responsible and to be good stewards of the financial commitment our families have made to their children’s education. As such, to maintain a sound operating budget, Heritage Christian School has authorized a schedule for payment of tuition in the event a student withdraws after they have enrolled.

Please note: All student billing accounts must be paid in full before Heritage Christian School will release academic records/transcripts to another school. Academic records may also be withheld for not returning library or athletic equipment and uniforms or non-payment of related fees. Official transcripts and diplomas will be withheld if a senior’s account has not been paid in full by the last day of their academic year.

Withdrawals After Enrollment
