Refund Policy

McKinney Christian Academy has financial and contractual arrangements with faculty, staff, vendors, etc., which are made before the beginning of each school year. These obligations and commitments require MCA to MANDATE that all enrolling families commit financially for the entire school year.

In order for MCA to meet its contractual obligations to faculty, staff, and others, we do not offer a refund on any tuition and fees for any reason including, but not limited to, job relocation, change in parents’ decision for student to attend, etc. If for any reason an enrolled student fails to attend or to continue in attendance at MCA for the contracted school year, 100% of the tuition is still due and must be paid in full.
