Financial Agreement

For Shiloh Christian Schools to consider accepting an application for our child to attend Shiloh and reserving a place for our child in the School; or reserving a place on the waiting list in the School for that child to attend Shiloh in that child's expected grade level; and for consideration of said School making plans to provide sufficient teachers and resources for the education of our child, WE, the parents, agree to the following:

Enrollment Fee

Once the student is enrolled, all enrollment fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE, unless the School is unable to accept your child as a student because of the results of the tests or for any reason given by the School, and we understand that the School has the complete discretion to refuse to accept our child as a student. It is understood by us that the filing of this application with the School is used by the School to determine the number of teachers necessary within the School and determine the commitment of other financial resources to assure our child will receive a proper education. After the enrollment fees are paid, if the application is withdrawn by us as the parents of the child, for any reason, we understand that this fee is NOT REFUNDABLE or TRANSFERABLE unless we are required by our employer to transfer from the Northwest Arkansas area prior to the beginning of the school year. ENROLLMENT FEES WILL NOT BE REFUNDED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE, ONCE THE APPLICABLE SCHOOL YEAR HAS STARTED.

Tuition Agreement

We agree to pay the tuition for the following student [                            ] using the tuition schedule which is attached to this application and made a part hereof as if set out fully in this application and desire to use the following payment plan. Should we be required to leave the Northwest Arkansas area due to employment, we understand that we will not be held responsible for the full semesters tuition (confirmation from employer will be required). However, if our child attends any portion of the month, the entire tuition for that month will be due. We further agree to complete the attached pre-authorized bank draft withdrawal form if we elect to use the automatic bank draft method.

Specialty Fees

All Specialty Fees will be billed at the beginning of the first and second semester. All Specialty Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Specialty Fees are defined as Athletic Fees, NWACC Tuition, AP Test Fees, Etc.

Directed Services

We understand that the charge for Directed Services will be billed to us per the Shiloh Christian School fee schedule.

Note: If paying for enrollment fees by check, the application(s) will be held pending receipt of payment by our Business Office. Application enrollment/fees paid using a credit card are not held pending for receipt of payment.
