We are bringing together ACA families, past, present, and even future, for an evening of music, fellowship, and fundraising. The focus of the evening will be the launching of the NEXT 20 years; or, in keeping with our musical theme, we are “Arranging A New Score!”  

Childcare will be provided in the ACA Performing Arts Building for ages 4-12. Be thinking about who you would like to invite to this wonderful evening of music and fellowship. Tickets are available in the school office and are $30 each.  Please get your tickets and reserve a spot for childcare by Monday, April 23rd!  Let’s get the word out!

ENROLLMENT & FINANCIAL AID

Re-enrollment contracts are now due. To hold your student’s place in their grade, please turn in your enrollment contract as soon as possible.  We are already enrolling new students, so don’t delay!

The FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program has opened for applications for financial assistance for the 2018-2019 school year. Financial assistance is available for our families as needed. We understand that private education is a sacrifice. For that reason, we want to make sure our tuition is one of the lowest in the greater Tulsa area. We also do what we can to assist those for whom a private Classical Christian Education might otherwise not be possible. If you know of a family whom you feel should consider ACA, please encourage them to set up a time to tour or shadow in the very near future. Don’t let financial circumstances impede a family from an introduction to ACA.  And please remember that if you have received financial aid this year, you must still apply for financial aid for the 2018-2019 school year.



CHANGE TO FACTS PAYMENT PLAN OPTIONS

If you are not paying tuition in full or using the two payment (at semester) payment plan through the front office, the FACTS payment program allows you to set up monthly payments. However, PLEASE NOTE that FACTS can no longer accept credit card payments beginning with the next school year. Changes to the credit card laws no longer allow them to keep credit card information on file for monthly drafts.  They will only be able to accept bank draft (or ACH) payments for this process. If this change will adversely impact your payment plan, please reach out to Mr. Ahrens at [email protected] so that other arrangements may be considered.

As a reminder, the payment plans are as follows:

12-month plan: Payments start in May or June. FACTS contracts must be submitted in April.

11-month plan: Payments start in June or July. FACTS contracts must be submitted in May.

10-month plan: Payments start in July or August. FACTS contracts must be submitted in June.

Our FACTS payment enrollment forms are now available in the office.  If you have questions about our tuition payment plans, please contact the school office or Mr. Ahrens at the above email address.




MOMS PRAYER TIME

Join a group of ACA moms to pray for our school, our kids, our teachers & administration, and our families.  They will be meeting on Thursday mornings at 8:15 in room 104 (off of the Great Room across from the 2nd grade classroom).  There are no commitments… just come when you are able to join them! If you arrive early (before 8:00) you can grab a cup of coffee in the school lobby!



COFFEE & FELLOWSHIP

Join us each morning when dropping off your child(ren) for school. Take an extra few minutes to park and start your day with some great fellowship as well as a great cup of Java Dave’s coffee. We have been enjoying these mornings with our teachers and parents and we would love to see you there. The coffee bar is open in the lobby between 7:30 - 8:00 a.m. each morning.
