*** While we allow students to use the iPad 4 and Air, we strongly encourage parents to upgrade their child’s device in order to extend the useful life of the investment. We make no guarantees with regard to what Apple,  app developers, and textbook publishers do in terms of the date they retire or end of life hardware, update apps, and/or lose backward compatibility with existing apps or services. Therefore students should only use older hardware (iPad 4) if these devices are already in parents’ possession and parents realize they may run into issues during the school year necessitating a mid year upgrade. Parents should not purchase an iPad model that is more than 3 years old at time of purchase.

The tuition charged by Valley Christian Schools may be paid in one of the following ways:

  • Prepaid in full by July 1, 2019 (Payable to Valley Christian Schools).
  • Payment on the 11-month plan, starting July 2019 and ending May 2020, using FACTS Tuition Management, subject to credit review at VCS’ option. Extra classes will be charged on a pro-rata basis.
FACTS Tuition Management

Monthly tuition payments must be set up with FACTS for Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) from your bank account on the 1st or 15th of each month. If you do not specify, the default will be the 15th of each month. More information regarding your FACTS account can be found on the enrollment site beginning February 1, 2019. FACTS does not administer the non-refundable deposit fee of $500 for the Leigh Campus or $1,200 for the Skyway Campus as these are paid online during enrollment.

Please be aware that FACTS offers a very attractive "Peace of Mind" insurance policy for the very modest price of $20 per year. A death in a student's family can disrupt his/her academic life due to the potential loss of educational funds. In the event of the death of the responsible party or his/her legal spouse, FACTS will pay the remaining balance up to $30,000 (except amounts that are delinquent). Also, the Peace of Mind insurance is only available to individuals who are under the age of 70 at the time the coverage begins. Unfortunately, we have had to deal with situations involving deaths in the family several times in the past few years and we believe that this insurance policy is valuable to many families during a family hardship. We highly recommend signing up for this benefit. No other tuition assistance will be available from the school above any amount previously granted during a hardship of this type.

Additional Programs and Policies

Miscellaneous Fees and Charges

Separate fees are charged for athletics (afterschool sports), certain electives, iPad App fees, e-textbooks, parking, scheduled busing, and other miscellaneous school activities (such as field trips). Such fees are in addition to those set forth in the schedule above. These fees are charged as incurred. Please be advised that students at the Skyway Campus also must purchase digital books, workbooks, and possibly other items as required by the course being  taken.

Skyway iPad Programs

All sixth through twelfth grade students will be required to have a student-owned iPad dedicated for school. The recommended specs can be found on our website at VCJH iPad Recommendations and VCHS iPad Recommendations.

Youth with Promise Programs

Note: Financial Assistance must be re-applied for each year.

The Financial Assistance application deadline will be Wednesday, February 6, 2019. The applications will be processed in the order received, so earlier submission of qualified applications will increase the likelihood of being awarded financial assistance, as available funds normally run out quickly. For more information regarding our Youth with Promise, please visit our Financial Assistance page If you have any questions or need further information, please email Josie Ko at jko@vcs.net.

Academic Support Services

Valley Christian Schools offers a wide range of academic support services to assist students with learning challenges. Information is available at each campus office.

After-School Enrichment

Afterschool enrichment and extended care are available for an additional fee for students at the Leigh Campus. For more information, call (408) 559-4400.

Bus Service

We offer extensive bus service on selected routes in Santa Clara County at an additional charge. Busing sign-ups will be part of the online enrollment process. Free shuttle service runs continuously in the morning and afternoon from the Fehren Park and Ride lot, located approximately ¾ of a mile north of the campus on Monterey Road. Free morning shuttle service is provided from the Ford Road Park and Ride located approximately two miles south of the campus on Monterey Road. Times for the Ford Road shuttle service can be found on the busing website. We encourage families to take advantage of the shuttle as it serves to lessen the traffic on campus and can easily save a parent an average of 20 minutes per day picking up or dropping off their child. Please note that security is provided at the Fehren Park and Ride lot continuously each school day from approximately 6:30am to 6:45pm.

Early Withdrawal

Tuition is payable for the entire semester for any student whose enrollment covers any portion of the period. The school principal should be notified at least ten days in advance of the final date a student will attend school. All charges related to the student's enrollment must be paid up to the date of withdrawal.

Returned Checks (NSF)

Accounts will be charged a $30 service fee for all returned checks. After two returned checks, subsequent payments must be made by cash, cashier's check, or certified funds. Valley Christian, at its discretion, may require quarterly payments in advance for habitually delinquent accounts in order for your child to maintain attendance.

Missed Payment Fee

A $30 missed payment fee will be assessed by FACTS for each missed EFT payment attempt. Accounts remaining past due are reported to a credit reporting agency. A student is subject to immediate dismissal from Valley Christian Schools if their tuition account becomes 30 days past due.
