Continuous Enrollment

Re-enrollment is an annual data collection process that schools use to update enrollment records of the current student body. This information is used as the school makes plans for the following school year. Basically, the simple question is: “Are you coming back to school next year?” For our leadership team at Liberty Christian School, we need to know how many students we will have on the first day of school.

LCS leadership does a lot of planning to ensure that we’re prepared to fulfill our mission excellently every year. Until LCS families “sign on the line” that they’re coming back each year, we can’t make solid plans for staffing, programs, materials, curriculum and facility usage. We take the stewardship of tuition dollars entrusted to us every year very seriously. We want to invest these tuition dollars wisely so that we can provide the best education possible for our students.

Up until this point, re-enrollment has been an “opt-in” program. We annually ask every family, “Are you coming back?” In a sense, we’ve been penalizing the vast majority of families by forcing you all to go through this process every year. Last year, for instance, we retained 84% of our student body. So EVERYONE had to go through re-enrollment for the sake of the 16% that, for one reason or another, left our school community.

By signing your Continuous Enrollment contract, you will be flipping that script. Rather than an opt-IN annual re-enrollment process, LCS’s annual re-enrollment will become an OPT-OUT process. In other words, if you’re coming back after signing your “Continuous Enrollment Contract,” you’ll never have to worry about this again.

Once all of our families are on the “Continuous Enrollment Program,” the typical re-enrollment season (January through April) will simply be a communication reminder from the Enrollment Office informing the families that might be thinking about leaving our school to notify us prior to the end of March. If last year is any indication, this means that 84+% of LCS families will have the convenience of ignoring this message and doing absolutely nothing!

LCS families that are re-enrolled, but break the contract by dis-enrolling their students after the specified date will be contractually obligated to pay $750. While the penalty may seem steep, this is a necessary step to insure continuity and consistent tuition pricing.

All current families are exempt from the penalty as we transition to the Continuous Enrollment model. Penalties will commence in 2019.

We’ve built flexibility into this contract. So, for major life changes/unique circumstances like moving 25+ miles away from our school, or if LCS can no longer meet your child’s educational needs, if we ask your family to leave, or if there is some unforeseen circumstance that our Administration approves, there will be no financial penalty.

Under the traditional enrollment model, we would have to keep doing some form of this process every year. Continuous Enrollment is a once-and-for-all process. Once you sign your Continuous Enrollment Contract, you’ll never have to deal with re-enrollment again (unless your family plans change). Again, “Set it, and forget it!” In the event that things do change, you’ll have until the end of April every year to simply notify the Admissions Coordinator and face absolutely no penalty.

  • I hereby opt into Continuous Enrollment. This means that my LCS students will keep coming back to LCS every year unless I tell the school otherwise.
  • I understand that I have until the end of April every year to notify the Liberty Christian School Admissions Coordinator of any changes in my plans of enrollment for my child/ren by signing and returning a completed Student Withdrawal form.
  • If I breach this contract by disenrolling my child/ren after April 30th, I understand that I will be contractually obligated to pay $750 as a penalty. (All current families are exempt from the penalty as we transition to the Continuous Enrollment model. Penalties will commence in 2019.)
  • Unique Circumstances: Liberty Christian School recognizes that family plans change. Families disenrolling after the announced deadline will be exempt from penalty under the following circumstances:
    • Moving/Relocation 25+ miles away from Liberty Christian School.
    • Educational needs for the student that can no longer be met at Liberty Christian School as determined by the LCS Administration and faculty.
    • Disenrollment at the request of Liberty Christian School.
    • Other circumstances as approved by the Administration.

Continuous Enrollment will start in March 2018. Contracts are due by April 30, 2018. We look forward to serving LCS families in this way and making the process even more convenient!

Simplicity. No more redundant forms to fill out. No more re-enrollment fees to pay.

Guaranteed placement. With increasing enrollment, if we approach capacity in a certain grade, by opting into Continuous Enrollment, you’ll be locking down that coveted seat for your child.

We will begin Continuous Enrollment on March 1st. The LCS Office will send you an E-mail with easy step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process. It will only take you a couple of minutes. You’ll have until April 30th to complete it.
