Admission

Continuous Enrollment

Casady School is pleased to announce that it is moving to Continuous Enrollment, a process that will be simpler and easier for our families.
This year will be the last time Casady parents will be asked to complete an Enrollment Contract. Each year, 95% of our families re-enroll so we asked ourselves, why do we ask our families to re-enroll every year? It is always our priority to serve our community the best way we can, which means constantly re-evaluating our processes.

The process for the 2020-21 school year will look much like it has in the past. There is still one last contract to submit. Continuous Enrollment Contracts will be issued on January 29, and it is critical that we receive Enrollment Contracts for current students by February 20 so that we may begin to plan and invite prospective mission-appropriate students and their families to join our Casady Community.
 
This year's re-enrollment process will be the same. Your student’s Enrollment Contract will appear on the MyCasady page of the “Responsible Signer” for your family. Your family will be asked to review the contract, select a payment plan, pay the required enrollment fee, and submit the information accordingly to complete the re-enrollment process. If you do not recall your family’s “Responsible Signer,” please contact Ami Naik in Casady’s Admission and Enrollment Management Office at naika@casady.org or 749-3185. Please note that contracts not submitted by February 20 will incur an additional $50 fee each month.
 
Enrollment fees, payment plans, and student billing will continue through SmartTuition, so your family’s login and account information will remain the same. If you need assistance with your login for SmartTuition, you may contact the company directly at 1-888-868-8828, or if you have a question about student billing, Melissa Jenkins in Casady’s Business Office is also available at jenkinsm@casady.org or 749-3165 to assist you.
 
We know you share our excitement as we plan for 2020-2021 so that your family continues to enjoy a truly enriched Casady experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 15 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: What is Continuous Enrollment?

    Continuous Enrollment is a contract that enrolls a student for the upcoming year and all subsequent years or until:
    • The student graduates
    • The family decides to opt out
  • Q: Why is Casady moving to continuous enrollment at this time?

    It is always our priority to serve our community the best way we can, which means constantly re-evaluating our processes. As we find ourselves in a world where auto renew and auto draft are a part of our everyday vocabulary, and have become commonplace practices, we believe this is the right time to make the transition to a similar method for enrollment. We want to mirror those business practices that our community is familiar with, while at the same time providing a cleaner and easier enrollment process for our families.
  • Q: What is going to be different this year when I sign the contract, and how will the process change again next year?

    The process for enrollment this year will be no different than what you have become accustomed to since we introduced online enrollment four years ago. You will receive, review, and submit an enrollment contract for each child, select a tuition payment method, and initiate a payment of your enrollment fee.

    The change will come in year 2 (enrollment for the 2021-22 school year) when you will no longer receive a contract to submit. Should any changes be necessary, you will contact us by the deadlines we’ve provided and your requested changes will be made. We will send plenty of reminders and notifications as deadlines approach.

    If you are like the majority of our families who re-enroll each year and make no change to their tuition payment plan, you will not have to do anything moving forward!
  • Q: Can I choose to opt-out of Continuous Enrollment?

    No, at this time Casady School has made a decision to move forward with Continuous Enrollment to ease the re-enrollment process. We know that this process will be a benefit to our families.
  • Q: What if I’m not sure I want my child to be continuously enrolled until they graduate?

    If at any time you decide you want to withdraw your student’s enrollment, you can do so. You will need to be mindful of the “Opt Out Deadline” which will be February 20 of each year moving forward. Should you withdraw beyond that point, there will be an enrollment fee or tuition penalty.
  • Q: Where can I find a copy of my signed contract going forward?

    The signed contract copy is always saved in your MyCasady profile by clicking on “Files & Forms” and checking off “show completed form” under each child’s name. Please call the Admission and Enrollment Management Office at 405-749-3200 with additional questions or if you are unable to locate the contract copy.
  • Q: Will I need to add my bank account information each year after this contract?

    No, once you enter the information this year, it will stay there until the parent changes it.
  • Q: If I choose the 1-payment option and want to take advantage of the 1% discount, what is the deadline for my tuition payment?

    For the 2020-21 academic year, the 1% discount will apply to full tuition payments made within three weeks of receiving the enrollment contract.

    Beginning with the 2021-22 academic year, full tuition payments must be made by February 20 of the year prior to the upcoming academic year in order to receive the 1% discount.
  • Q: What if I need to change my payment plan selection in 2021-22?

    The payment plan selection can be changed by calling the Business Office / Student Billing at 405-749-3165.
  • Q: What if I want my annual enrollment fee to be charged to a different account vs. the tuition payment?

    Starting for the 2021-22 school year (February 29, 2021) the annual enrollment fee will be deducted automatically based on the banking information that’s in the SmartTuition records when you signed the Continuous Enrollment contract. However, you can call SmartTuition or Casady's Business Office / Student Billing at 405-749-3165 to change the payment source.
  • Q: What if I am applying for Financial Aid and not sure if we can afford Casady School tuition for the coming year?

    The Financial Aid committee has Open Enrollment each fall. So long as your Financial Aid application has been submitted by the Open Enrollment deadline, you will receive notification of your grant before the “Opt Out Deadline,” annually on February 20. If you need more time to consider your grant, and you ultimately decide the grant is not workable for your family, you will be able to withdraw and receive a refund of your enrollment fee.
  • Q: What happens if I withdraw my child after the Opt-Out deadline (February 20)

    If a student is withdrawn after the opt-out deadline, the enrollment fee will be nonrefundable.
  • Q: What if we learn after the Opt Out Deadline that we are moving and our enrollment fee has already been drafted?

    Once the re-enrollment period is over and the Opt Out Deadline has passed, there will be a scheduled auto draft of enrollment fees on February 28 for all re-enrolling students. Enrollment fees are non-refundable, and it is our way of anticipating enrollment for the following Academic Year. Think of it as a placeholder for your child.
  • Q: What happens if I withdraw my child after May 31?

    Per the terms of the enrollment contract, any student withdrawn on or after June 1 will be required to pay 25% of tuition, unless the reason for withdrawal is for reason of a family relocation of over 75 miles from the SCHOOL.
  • Q: What will be the process next year?

    The timeline for Year 2 and beyond will be:
    • January
      • Reminder email about auto-enroll and opt out
      • Email with 2021-2022 tuition announcement
    • February
      • Reminder email about opt out date
      • Opt Out Date – February 20 (annually)
      • Auto Draft Date – February 28 (annually)
    • May
      • Last day to withdraw without a tuition penalty: May 31 (annually)
