Health Insurance

No student will be accepted without health insurance. If a student's health insurance does not cover the entire cost of a doctor's visit or hospital experience, South Merrimack Christian Academy and/or the host family is not responsible for the remaining balance owed.

Tuition and Fees

Please click here to view our 2021-2022 International Student Financial Policy.

A student's account must be paid in full by the first day of school. A deposit fee is required to front the cost of miscellaneous charges that may accrue throughout the year. On the last day of school, a credit balance on the student's account will be refunded to the family. If the student plans to return the next year, the credit balance will remain on the student's account to be applied towards the coming term. All financial obligations must be met before Report Cards, Transcripts, Diplomas, and other school records will be released.


SMCA does not make arrangements for homestays. Most families require their own compensation for accomodations, however these terms are arranged apart from the academy.
