Our amazing volunteers have been busy planning our new and improved after school programming! Some of these will be one time events, running on a trial basis so we can determine interest. Others, like our new coding club, will be happening weekly! Look out for more details about these events coming soon.

Important Enrollment Updates

Important Reminder: The enrollment fee is due before submitting and completing your enrollment. You may pay it all at once before submitting the packet, or pay in ten month installments. If you choose the installment plan, we can include the enrollment fee in your monthly tuition and distribute it across the ten months. Please let Mr. Paul know which option you prefer (treasurer@ephesusjracademy.org) so that we can update your tuition agreements as needed.


New Families: In order to finish your enrollment and submit the packet, you will need to log back into our admissions website and use the account you created when submitting your application: https://aec-sda.client.renweb.com/oa/login.cfm?memberid=5326

Click “start enrollment packet” and follow the directions to finish. There will be a section in the enrollment packet that takes you to our online tuition payment plans. You must create an account there first before completing your enrollment packet.

Students who do not bring $1 or are inappropriately dressed will be asked to change.


Important Dress Down Reminders
