Tuition & Fees
We checked out other schools in the area, and we found that MVC offers the highest quality and value for our child.

The cost of a quality private school education is substantial. At Monte Vista Christian we recognize that sometimes in life, circumstances arise that might require a student to withdraw during the school year. Because tuition is nonrefundable, it may be in the best interest of parents/guardians to participate in our Tuition Protection Plan.
The purpose of the Tuition Protection Plan is to allow a partial refund/waiver of tuition owed under the annual tuition contract in the event of a Day Student’s withdrawal during the school year. This Plan provides a means to recover a percentage of the fees paid or to waive a percentage of fees owed for tuition if a student withdraws after the first 10 days of classes.
For example, if a student withdraws voluntarily on December 31 and is enrolled in theTuition Protection Plan, the Plan would cover 60% of the fees associated with the period following withdrawal (in this example, January 1 to the close of the school year). Any remaining percentage of tuition installments yet to be paid (in this example 40%) is due in full at the time of withdrawal.
Tuition will be refunded or waived for the period following withdrawal for the reasons and at the amounts listed below:
• Withdrawal for Medical Reasons: 100% of tuition for period following withdrawal
• Withdrawal for Non-Medical Reasons: 60% of tuition for period following withdrawal
• Dismissal from School: 50% of tuition for period following dismissal
Withdrawal for Medical Reasons: Includes disability or mental disorder certified by a licensed doctor that prevents enrollment in a school environment for the remainder of the current school year. If requesting a medical withdrawal, the reason must be stated from the beginning of the withdrawal process and substantiated by a medical professional.
Withdrawal for Non-Medical Reasons: Voluntary withdrawal.
Dismissal: Students dismissed from the school for academic or disciplinary reasons.
Election to participate in the Tuition Protection Plan can only be made during the re-enrollment period for Day Students. Families who choose not to participate in this Plan and whose student(s) withdraw or are dismissed during the school year will be responsible for the complete balance of annual tuition.
