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

  • Prepaid in full by July 1, 2017 (Payable to Valley Christian Schools);
  • Payment on the 11-month plan, starting July 2017 and ending May 2018 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, 2017. 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 "Peace of Mind" insurance policy for the very modest price of $17 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). The Peace of Mind insurance is only available to individuals who are under the age of 70 at the time the coverage begins. There have been several situations involving deaths in the family 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 (after-school sports), certain electives, iPad App fees, e-textbooks, parking, scheduled busing, and other miscellaneous school activities (such as field trips).

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

After-school 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 3⁄4 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 $25 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.
