Paying for Christian Education
It is our goal that an education at CCA be available to those who desire a Christian education. Student work opportunities, tuition discounts, scholarships, and need-based tuition assistance are available to help make this goal a reality. 529 Savings Plans may also be a resource for families. See below for more information regarding these possible finance options.
Tuition and fees information is provided at the Educational Success Consultation visit.
STUDENT WORK OPPORTUNITIES
CCA operates a student work program that enables students to earn a paycheck which is applied toward their student accounts. The work program also provides students with work experience and students are taught how to be good employees. Work opportunities provide students with schedule flexibility and extracurricular activities such as music and sports are regularly accommodated. Student workers are greatly valued for their contributions toward the efficient operations of the school.
Student reader, clerical, custodial and childcare positions are available. Washington State minimum wage is earned and students age 14 and older may apply.
