 American Collegiate Academy Parent Referral Program

Committed to Education

At American Collegiate Academy, the Parent Referral Program is our way of saying thank you for sharing the benefits of our services. Parents of current and former students may receive a $100 gift credit to our School Spirit shop or $50 Visa gift card  for each referred new student who enrolls.

Eligibility Criteria

The following criteria must be met to be eligible for the gift card:

  • The referrer is a parent or guardian of a child either currently or formerly enrolled at American Collegiate Academy.

  • The parent or guardian of the referred student signs an Enrollment and Tuition Agreement and pays the enrollment fee if applicable.

  • The parent or guardian of the referred student enters the referrer's name in the online enrollment form field "If you were referred by a American Collegiate Academy parent, please enter their name." Notifying the Principal or Athletic Director, sending an email, or writing the referring parent’s name on Tuition & Enrollment Agreement does not meet this eligibility requirement.

  • The referred student is not a sibling of a current or former student. (Parent referrals of siblings are not eligible.)

Gift Issuance

The referring parent will be issued a $100 Gift Credit or $50 Gift Card by email from American Collegiate Academy. If the referring parent cannot be reached by email, he or she will be notified by mail.

American Collegiate Academy may modify, suspend, or cancel the Parent Referral Program at any time without notice. Effective starting March 1, 2021.
