One of the purposes of existence for Hamilton Heights is to provide a quality academic environment at an affordable tuition. Hamilton Heights has one of the lowest tuitions of any accreditted school in the greater Chattanooga area. Any applicant that is accepted for enrollment is considered a student at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy and is responsible for all tuition payments when due, as long as they are officially enrolled. Students who decide not to attend Hamilton Heights after acceptance will be considered enrolled until an official withdrawal form is signed by the parent(s) and the administration of the school. Students have 30 days to withdraw, from the start of the academic school year, to receive a partial refund of tution. Acceptance of enrollment constitutes an agreement to pay the full academic year's account, comprised of both the total tuition and all related fees and expenses of the student. The school is entitled to be reimbursed for any attorney's fees and costs incurred in the collection of any unpaid balances. Payments can be made online via Renweb, by cash, check, most US credit cards, or wired eletronically through the bank.
