Fees for English Novels Automatically Added

Dear Central Academy students and families,

UPDATE: JULY 12, 2022:

Online registration opened yesterday.  However, families have reported that their English novels have not been added to their accounts as expected.  I spoke to the person who is working on adding those novels to student accounts.  There were some technical difficulties, but the novels will be added automatically within the next week or so.  You will not need to take any action to get those books added.

I’m so sorry for these technical difficulties.  We will get it straightened out as soon as possible.  The novels will be issued to students as they need them and we will not let these technicalities interfere with student access to the materials they need.

Thank you for your patience!


Every year, students enrolled in English at Academy need a set of novels or texts that they can annotate.  We will automatically add the costs of these books to your Infinite Campus fees.

There are two common ways to pay for your books:

  • After you complete online registration, you can pay online for school fees including your English books for Academy.
  • If your family qualifies for a textbook fee waiver or reduction, please do not pay for the books during online registration.  We will automatically adjust the cost of these books (free or half price).  We will know within 24 hours after you complete Online Registration if you qualify for the textbook fee waiver or reduction.   If you do not qualify for a textbook fee waiver or reduction you can pay for these books as you would any other school fee after school starts.

If you want to provide your own copies of the books, you may do so.  Just let Academy’s Office Manager, Herkisha Burkett, know that you would like the fees removed.

Donate to support English students

Central Academy pays all or part of the novels for students who receive free or reduced textbook fees. The cost of the books listed above is what we pay our vendor– we do not mark up the cost of the books for students.  Most classes require $23 – $31 in books per student.

If you would like to sponsor a student, please use the link below to donate.  All donations to this fundraiser will go to offset the cost of books.  Thank you for supporting our advanced learners!
