Online Bus Donations

Dear TJCA Families,

We are pleased to announce we have now added bus fee payments online at  In addition to adding funds for your student’s use in the lunch line, you can now pay bus fees as well.  Simply follow the instructions below to create your parent account, if you have not already done so, and add your students.  There you will be able to click on the Preorder tab, follow the instructions posted and view fees listed on their due dates.  This service offers you the ability to prefund your student’s account for use as a declining balance in the line and pull from that balance when paying fees online.  You can track all transactions for the past 30 days, transfer funds between students and have an email reminder sent to you when an account balance gets low.  Deposits and payments can be made through ACH (checking or savings) or Credit/Debit Card payments.  Each child’s account will be updated nightly so that preorders and account balance information will be current the following day.

If you have not already done so, please create a parent account. This requires you to:

  1. Go to
  2. Click “Create Account” on the top menu bar.
  3. Fill in the required information on the “Parent Account Sign-Up page.”
  4. Select NC for the state
  5. Create a User ID and Password
  6. Choose Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy from the “School District” drop down menu.
  7. Click the “Accept” box, and then click “Signup.” An email will be sent to your email address that will contain a “verification code.”

After you receive the “verification code” you may begin to add your children’s information. To do this, you will need to:

  1. Go to and login using your previously created user ID and password.
  2. Enter the “verification code” to verify your account and email address.
  3. Begin adding your children’s information according to the guidelines provided. You will need each of your children’s student ID #’s to add each student.
  4. After the students are added you will be able to make payments to your student’s account, pay fees, and view account activity.

Note: A parent account can be linked to many children, but a child can only be linked to one parent. 

We urge you to take full advantage of this system.

Note: There will be a per transaction convenience fee of $2.00 for checking/savings and $4 for credit/debit at check out.  These convenience fees are only associated to financial deposits and not necessarily purchases or preorders.

Any money that is not spent by the end of the school year will be available the following school year. If you have any questions about this or any other food service program, please contact the finance office at 828-657-9998 ext:1328.
