Welcome to all of our new and returning families!

The Enrichment Center of Western Pennsylvania (ECWPA) is a non-profit organization. We strive to support the community we have built and the services we provide; our fees structure supports that mission. Our fees are set to cover our costs rather than to make a profit from our members.

We strive to minimize our teaching supplies/material costs and technical costs while maintaining quality programming. We take advantage of volunteer support and leverage our financial resources toward our overall goal of supporting homeschooling families and empowering parents as the primary educators of their children. We promote initiative, diligence, excellence, and the dynamic expression of Christian faith in academics and service, all at the lowest cost we can sustain.

We welcome donations! Please contact our Director, Megan Eggers, at megananneggers@gmail.com should you feel called to offer a monetary donation, provide a scholarship to a family in need, or support our center with a donation of goods or services.   Remember, as a non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible.

Membership Fee and Family Class Registration Fee 

The annual Membership Fee covers your digital membership (receive our emails, access to our private organization webpage and your personalized info ‘private’ page) and insurance costs of our organization. The annual fee is applied when you first sign up for membership (regardless of your first month of signup). It is then renewed when you register for class(es) in the following Center year. Membership fees for each ‘family’ are $43 total regardless of the size of your family. This covers individuals, all students, and family members in your immediate household.

The Family Class Registration Fee.  This is a separate / additional fee which gives you the right to participate in our classes, attend our private events, as well as run for election and vote for Board members serving ECWPA (if you are in good standing). This is a per semester calculation / fee, which is currently $75 per family regardless of the size of your family.  This fee supports the overhead costs of running ECWPA, including rent, etc.

These fees are due on or before the 1st day of classes and may be paid via PayPal, Venmo, Cash, or Check.

Individual Class Fees 

Individual Class fees are variable. These fees are strictly for the materials costs / supplies to run the class(es) (unless otherwise noted in the class description) and are to be paid directly to the individual moms / teachers. Instructions on how the individual teachers prefer to be paid for their class materials / supplies will be noted on your family invoice.


Payment Dates and Late Charge Fee

Our standard payment plan is as follows:

All monies are due on or before the first day of classes for that semester.

A Late charge of $50 will be added to your account if the Annual Membership Dues and Semester Family Registration Fee have not been paid in full prior to October 1st for our Fall semester and March 1st for our Spring semester.

We are sensitive to the challenge of paying in full for multiple courses and multiple children at one time. If you need other arrangements, you must reach out to us prior to the 1st day of classes in writing to: payments@ecwpa.org

Note: students with unpaid balances forfeit their class seat at the next rolling registration period or upon the first day of classes unless alternate arrangements have been communicated and approved.

Invoicing and Forms of Payment

Your family’s invoicing, including your child(ren)’s classes cost(s) details and full balance due amounts are now available online on your individual ‘private page’ of our website.  

We accept cash, check and online payments via Paypal or Venmo.

Payment Assistance and Payment Arrangements

Partial and/or full scholarships are available on a limited basis. We also offer alternative need-based payment arrangements. We do not wish cost to be a prohibitive factor for students and families to participate in our programs. We are a supportive community and we strive to honor and encourage one another during difficult seasons in life. Please reach out to us if you need financial assistance. Requests will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

Refunds and Withdrawals

Membership Dues and Semester Family Registration Fees are non-refundable.

As curriculum and class materials / supplies are planned and purchased well in advance, the mom / teacher may not refund fees that have already been paid should your student have to leave the class during the course of the year.

We, however, honor an add / drop period during the first two weeks of classes. Should you find a course not suitable for your child(ren), you may transfer paid monies to another course.

Communication is key to any good relationship. Should you have a concern about your class registrations or find your child is struggling to adjust to class, please let us know so that we can help.

We will make every effort to meet your needs. In fairness to all members, families will not be permitted to register for new classes until their financial obligations have been met from the previous semester.


Returned Check fee:

ECWPA will assess a $30 fee for returned checks to cover our bank charges. We cannot redeposit returned checks.
