Our admissions process is designed to help both the parents, and the Day One administrators, determine if Day One is the best fit for each child seeking to enroll. The acceptance and ongoing enrollment of any child at Day One Christian Academy is contingent upon approval from the director, who is responsible for assuring the overall welfare of the program. The director will also consider enrollment for children with special, medical conditions or developmental needs, after a screening process is complete.

Should your family decide to join ours at Day One Christian Academy, the following enrollment paperwork is required to be submitted 48 hours prior to your child(ren) starting our program:


A Letter of Acceptance will be emailed indicating a date to secure each child's enrollment status with an annual non-refundable $225 Enrollment Fee. Failure to remit Fees and/or any part of the Enrollment Packet may result in forfeiture of your child's enrollment status and automatically place your application into the waiting pool.


The following forms will be available for signature in the tuition office once your child is accepted to our program.

  • Policy and Tuition Agreement
  • Simply Giving Enrollment Form
  • Parent Handbook Policies Agreement

Tuition Payments
Families are required to enroll and pay monthly tuition fees through Simply Giving. This method provides a convenient and efficient management of the tuition collection process, including an automatic bank draft, with options for drafting your payments on a monthly/bi-monthly basis. You can also pay for drop-in, application and enrollment fees, or make contributions/donations.

Tuition is calculated each school year and divided equally on a monthly basis, so that partial weeks and/or months are not pro-rated. All fees for the current school year are required to be paid prior to attending the first day of the new school year.

Tuition Discounts
Qualifying families will receive only one of the following discounts:

  • A 10% Discount is offered to the eligible sibling whose tuition is the lowest.
  • A 10% Discount is offered to the parents of children whose family is actively serving in the military.

The greater of the discounts will be applied to the monthly tuition. Documentation of financial responsibility will be required from grandparents and/or legal guardians prior to receiving the discount.

Scholarships are available. Please email  for the application or for more information.
