Family Incentive Referral Program

Word of mouth plays a crucial role in how families discover UMCA Rich Tree Academy. To foster this, we have established the Family Referral Incentive Program, designed to encourage our UMCA community to help bring in prospective students.

Refer a new family to UMCA and get $1,000 cash or credit towards your tuition!!

  • The Basics

    The program is open to all families of past & current UMCA students and past or current UMCA staff. Referred families must be new to UMCA, i.e., they do not already have a child enrolled in or registered in any grade at UMCA (and have never been enrolled in the past). The referral credit applies per family referred, not per student.

  • How To Qualify

    Referring families qualify for the tuition credit when the new family provides their name as having referred them on the Pre-Registration Form submitted by August 31, 2024, for the 2024-2025 academic year.

    A new family may only list one referring family on the Pre-Registration Form.

    For the purpose of clarity and to avoid any confusion or conflicts, ONLY the name of the referring family listed on the Application Form completed by the new family will qualify to receive the referral credit for the 2024-2025 academic year.

The Finer Details

For current UMCA families 

  • There is no limit to the number of families that can be referred.

  • If the referral credit exceeds the referring family’s tuition fees for the 2025-2026 school year, the excess can be applied to the 2026-2027 school year tuition fees.

  • There is no cash value to the referral credit.

  • The referring family’s tuition will be credited in September of the 2025-2026 school term.

    • If tuition has been paid in full, a refund cheque will be issued, or credit towards the 2026-2027 school term will be applied.

For UMCA Alumni + UMCA Staff 

  • UMCA Alumni families and UMCA staff who make a successful preschool or elementary referral but do not currently have a child enrolled in the school will receive a $1,000 cheque, provided the referred family completes the enrollment process and remains enrolled for the full academic year.

  • UMCA Alumni families and UMCA staff who make a successful high school referral but do not currently have a child enrolled in the school will receive a $75 cheque (per credit), provided the referred family completes the enrollment process and remains enrolled for the full academic year.

For everyone 

  • The referred family must follow and complete the regular enrolment process—submission of a registration form, approval by UMCA, and successful completion of a placement test for the student. The final decision for student acceptance rests solely with the School’s administration.

  • The referred family’s enrolment must continue in good standing for the full 2024-2025 academic year. 

  • Referrals may not be made retroactively.  Referrals must be made at the time of the new family’s initial registration and cannot be added after the registration form has been submitted.

  • Parents cannot refer their own children.

  • In the event of a conflict or a deemed abuse of the Family Referral Incentive Program, UMCA reserves the right to settle all disputes based on the program’s terms and conditions. The resolution reached by UMCA will be a final determination. Any disputes must be raised within 30 days of the incident.

  • The Family Referral Incentive Program may be discontinued at any time at the discretion of UMCA. UMCA reserves the right to change any and all information.

  • Eligible referrals are for preschool, and elementary school – referral credit is $1000 per new family.

  • Eligible referrals are for high school students – referral credit is $75 per credit
