Cary Christian School is a not-for-profit corporation incorporated in 1994. At least one parent or guardian must be a corporate member to enroll children at Cary Christian School, and annual dues are required to continue enrollment (re-enrollment). Corporation membership allows members to attend the monthly general session of board meetings and vote on incoming board members. Annual dues are $70 (joint) and $55 (single). For more information, please contact the main desk at (919) 303-2560, ext. 216.
The CCS by-laws require that at least one parent be a member of the CCS corporation for their children to attend CCS. The membership offers voting rights, the privilege to attend board meetings, and the ability to re-enroll for the following academic year.
CCS corporate memberships must be renewed each year on a calendar year basis. To make this convenient for our current families who pay tuition via monthly bank drafts, a bank draft for the CCS Corporate Membership Fee will automatically take place, usually in November, from the bank account used for your family’s tuition drafts.
You will be drafted at one of the following membership levels:
Joint/family – $70 annual fee (both parents are Christians living in the same household; two voting members; non-refundable)
Individual – $55 annual fee (unmarried Christian, Christian married to a non-Christian spouse, individual Christian parent of a two-household family; one voting member; non-refundable)
This bank draft will serve as your acknowledgement that you agree with CCS by-laws. There will be nothing else for you to do!
If a family’s membership is not renewed, the family will be:
