A big welcome to those receiving the Charger Newsletter for the first time this week!

 

HEN HOUSE SUMMER MEETING

The Hen House’s purpose is to Help, Encourage and Nurture the teachers, students, and families of ACA.  If you are new to ACA or just haven’t found a place to get plugged in, we would love for you to come out and join us.  Mark your Calendars for our only Summer meeting THIS Saturday, June 23rd, 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. at All About Cha in Broken Arrow (820 N Aspen Ave, Broken Arrow, OK 74012).  We will enjoy some time of fellowship and vote on officers for this coming school year.  Come and share what you would like to see us accomplish in 2018-19! All About Cha has an upstairs private meeting room that we can use free of charge.  They only ask that we not bring any outside food of drinks. So come hungry and enjoy some of their delicious breakfast foods, specialty coffees, and teas.

 

SECONDARY CLASS SCHEDULE

Please see the Secondary Class Schedule attached below.  Please call the school office if you have any questions about the course offerings, want to know what your student’s schedule looks like, or would like to schedule an appointment.  You can also reach us at [email protected] or [email protected]

There are some new courses this year including our new Introduction to Computer Science which includes experience in coding, a new Dialectic Bible class, Spanish I, and Classical Greek. Also Mrs. Anderson will be teaching a new class on Friday mornings called Mission: Geography, which combines an investigation of world geography with a study of historical mission work in these countries and modern persecution of Christians.  If your student is interested in one of these new classes, please be sure to let us know!  



DONATE YOUR BACKPACKS

Since your students have finished up the school year, consider donating their used backpack to change someone’s life.  Imagine if everything you owned had to be carried with you everywhere you go… a backpack would make a world of difference for you.  “Keepers” takes used & worn backpacks and donates them to homeless men and women who need someplace to store their things. You can drop off your used backpacks at the ACA office this summer during our normal office hours.  Please see the flyer attached below for more information about “Keepers”.

 

2018-2019 SCHOOL CALENDAR

Attached below is the School Calendar for next school year.  Please note the dates for Parent Orientations and the first day of school in August!



HELP NEEDED

When school starts in August, one of our families will need some help with after school transportation.  The student will need to be taken to his mother’s place of employment, Tulsa Spine & Specialty Hospital near Tulsa Hills, each day after school.  The driver will be compensated. If you, or your high school driver, is available to help with this, please contact the ACA office and we can put you in touch with the family.  918-832-4600 or [email protected] 

 

 

UNIFORM CONSIGNMENT SALE COMING SOON

Has your child outgrown his/her uniforms?  If they are still in good condition, you can consign them later this summer at ACA.  Beginning July 9th, you can drop off uniform items you would like to consign at the ACA office (Mon. - Thurs. 9:00 - 4:30).  Our “Uniform Consignment Store” will be open for shopping during office hours July 23 - August 9, and at each of the Parent Orientation evenings.  Be sure each item is tagged with your name, the size of the item, and the price you are asking.  Please see sample tags attached below.  We have found that it works best to pin your tags onto the clothing.  One dollar of every item sold will go to ACA and the rest will be paid to you.  Any items that are not sold will be returned to you the first week of school. You can also donate uniform items in good condition to the school.



EXTENDED DAY REGISTRATION FOR 2018-2019

It’s time to enroll in ACA’s Extended Day Program for the 2018-2019 school year. This program is for students K4-8th grade from 3:15 - 5:30 pm daily. Our program is growing, so register early to save your child’s spot with us for next year after school!  Please see the registration form attached below.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dawn Murphy-Williams at 314-952-3320.




FINANCIAL AID

The FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment program is open 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:

11-month plan: Payments starting in July. FACTS contracts must be submitted in June.

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

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.



OFFICE HOURS

The school office is on Summer Hours and will be open Monday - Thursday, 9:00 to 4:30.  If you need to reach someone outside of office hours, please email [email protected] .
