- The family is moving more than 50 miles away from PCA; or
- The student is unable to attend PCA due to medical reasons.
Families enrolled in the Tuition Refund Program pay a $200 fee per student. This amount is added to the total tuition.
Families who pay annually may choose to participate in the program. Families who pay monthly must participate in the program.
Families submit in writing their reason for withdrawal. If it meets the TRP criteria, families receive a refund equal to 80% of the unused portion of tuition.
Families paying annually who do not participate in the TRP program at the time of enrollment are not allowed to participate at the time of their departure.
