Registration/Enrollment Procedure

  1. Complete the application online (click here to apply) and submit a copy of the student’s most recent report card, a copy of recent (within two years) standardized test scores, an unofficial transcript from current school, and the non-refundable $75 testing fee. Please note that prospective students must go through the entire enrollment procedure before being accepted; space availability in a classroom does not guarantee admission.
  2. Once the above mentioned items have been received and reviewed, the school will continue the enrollment process by scheduling a shadow day, a testing date, collecting the required $175 registration fee, and scheduling a subsequent family interview with the site principal. For Upper School (7th-12th grade) admissions, the prospective student must attend and participate in the interview as well. The registration fee will be refunded if the school does not accept the student.
  3. Acceptance will be based upon the spiritual background of the family, the academic, social, and emotional suitability of the student, and space availability. Decatur Heritage Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admission policies or financial aid process.
  4. Parents will be notified as to the status of admission within five business days after the interview. Information regarding enrollment and the waiting pool is confidential.
  5. Upon acceptance, several additional DHCA forms will be required along with copies of the student’s birth certificate, social security card, and up-to-date blue immunization record. A payment plan must be selected through the finance office. The annual tuition rates for the 2020-2021 school year are: K5 (half day) – $4,928, K5-6th – $7,469, 7th-11th – $8,178.50, 12th – $8,288.50. Semi-annual and monthly payment options are also available.
  6. Financial aid is available. DHCA uses FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment Services for needs assessment. The application is completed by the family online at
