New Parent Top FAQs

Thank you for your interest in Castle Rock Christian Academy.

Our mission is to partner with Christian families to provide a Christ-centered learning environment designed to equip students to become transformational student leaders.

The partnership between the school and families is a critical component of the culture and climate we work hard to maintain for the students.

Acceptance into the school requires parents to confirm they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and support our statement of faith established by our Pastoral Board. Proverbs 22:6 states: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” We believe the next generation of leaders must know God in order to lead lives that will help them transform the world around them.

As a private school, tuition is vital to our ongoing success. Information about tuition rates, discounts, assistance, and payment plans can be found here.

All tuition is paid through FACTS, our tuition management program.

Reimbursement is not given for snow days or student absences due to illness, vacations, etc.

A non-refundable registration fee of $300 is due at the time of enrollment to ensure your child’s space in our school.

Elementary School students wear uniforms that may or may not include the Castle Rock Christian Academy logo embroidered on the student’s polo shirts, which can be purchased through Land’s End.

Students may wear khaki or black slacks, shorts, jumpers (Kindergarten), or skirts from a local retail store. Spirit shirts and hoodies are optional and also may be purchased from Land’s End.

The school also offers our free “Give and Take” closet so that parents have a source to give outgrown uniforms and take the next size for their growing children.

For more details, please refer to the dress code policy in the Family Handbook.

We do not serve hot lunch or any breakfast.
Students need to bring a healthy sack lunch, a water bottle (no sodas or energy drinks please), and a nutritious snack (fruit, vegetables, etc.) each day.

If a student forgets to bring lunch, we can provide an emergency lunch when needed.

Please Note: To ensure that everyone has enough time to eat and enjoy lunch, please send food that does not need to be heated in the microwave. Due to severe allergies, we ask that you refrain from sending any nut products in your child’s snack and lunches.

Current Parent Top FAQs

We want to retain every student each year. Traditional enrollment models require families who wish to return to re-enroll every year — a process that can seem both tedious and stressful.

We us a Continuous Enrollment process. This allows us to create an opt-OUT process for annual enrollment, which reduces stress and creates fewer steps for families who wish to remain with our school. Once a family signs their Tuition and Continuous Enrollment Agreement, they do not have to sign it again.

The enrollment fee will be billed to the family’s account each year, which will guarantee the student’s space in the school. The payment will be divided and included in the family’s remaining FACTS payments for the current school year, beginning in March to reduce the financial impact of each family’s monthly budget. Families who opt-out before March 1 are expressing their intent not to return to CRCA and are therefore not charged the continuous enrollment fee.

Castle Rock Christian Academy provides parents a web-based service called Family Portal.

This is a password-protected personal account for each family. This service enables the school to communicate with parents regarding all things regarding the life of the school. Family Portal is where the application and enrollment process is completed. You can find general information like announcements and the calendar of events. Parents can see academic information, such as grades and school/teacher communications.

Please regularly check Family Portal, district code TR-CO.

Each of our campuses have different times for arrival and dismissal:

Lower Campus (K-4) |  8:00 – 3:00
Upper Campus (5-9) |  8:30 – 3:30

We understand that life happens, and there may be an occasional instance when you arrive late to pick up your child. We are happy to accommodate these occasions. However, continued instances of arriving late will mean we will have to arrange for after school care, which is an additional cost.

Any child not picked up ten minutes after school will be kept in the school office. The parent/guardian must then come to the office to sign his/her child(ren) out.

Please be prompt in picking up your child(ren).
