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 and technical costs while maintaining quality programming. We take advantage of volunteer support whenever we can 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 Executive 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 the digital membership 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 all family members/students in your immediate household.

The Family Class Registration Fee is required to become a member of ECWPA. This gives you the right to participate in 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 $55 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 by the 1st day of classes and may be paid via PayPal, Venmo, Cash, or Check.

Class Fees 

Individual Class fees are variable. The fee is calculated based on a combination of factors, including instructor time, resources, curriculum, and any technology needs. Individual class fees are currently based and collected per semester.


Tuition 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 Christian 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.


Payment Dates and Payment Plan

We are sensitive to the challenge of paying in full for multiple courses and multiple children at one time. Our standard payment plan is as follows:

Deposit: Due upon registration within 2 weeks of sign-up

 Remaining Payments are due: First day of Fall and Spring semester terms.

*A second mid-term payment date may be added upon request. Please submit your request in writing to: payments@ecwpa.org

Note: students with unpaid deposits will 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 is now available online on your individual ‘private page’ of our website. 

A paper invoice will be provided the second day of classes or upon request. Full account balance and details are available online through your ECWPA member account. 

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


Refunds, Withdrawals, and Late Payments

Deposits and individual class fees already paid are non-refundable.

As curriculum and supportive services are planned well in advance, we 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 credit 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.

If your scheduled payment is late for any reason, please communicate with us!  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 $15 fee for returned checks to cover our bank charges. We cannot redeposit returned checks.
