Pastor Discount

All vocational pastors of Bible-believing Orthodox, Protestant, or Catholic Churches will be entitled to a 30% tuition discount for every student for whom they are an immediate parent or guardian.


A 30% discount on the pastor's total family tuition may be awarded upon approval (Preschool K3 through Grade 12). The discount only applies to tuition (not fees).

A qualifying pastor could be either:

  • a senior/lead pastor, preacher, or minister,
  • a pastor of children, youth, or music, or
  • a pastor in an executive position


For the purpose of this policy and regardless of job title, "pastor" shall not be defined simply as an employee or volunteer of a church, but rather only those vocational pastors who:

  • have charge over areas of pastoral/preaching ministry (applicants for the discount will be asked to describe job duties and scope), and
  • derive the majority of their individual income from employment as a pastor.


The employer must be a church with regular Sunday worship services and qualifications for membership, not a para-church organization or ministry. 


  1. Families receiving the 30% pastor discount will not be eligible for Tuition Assistance or the Multi-Child Family discount.
  2. The Pastor's family must successfully complete all WCA enrollment or re-enrollment requirements including the payment of fees, meeting deadlines, etc.
  3. Awarding of the Pastor's Tuition Discount is subject to final approval of WCA.
  4. The application must be submitted prior to the start of school in order to be considered. For any new family enrolling at WCA during the school year, application must be submitted within 30 days of enrollment.
  5. In the event that students receiving a Pastor Discount are withdrawn from WCA  and later re-enrolled, the pastor discount, upon return, is subject to the current discount rate.
