PAYMENT PLAN Tuition may be paid in one of the following ways:
Annually - Tuition is paid in one payment for the entire year and must be paid by June 1st. There is a 3% savings for this option.
Monthly - Tuition is paid in either 10 monthly checks postdated the 1st of each month (August 1st-May 1st) or 12 monthly checks postdated the 1st of each month (June 1st-May 1st). Postdated checks must be given to the financial secretary. These will be secured and deposited monthly. The 12 month payment option is not available for K4 students.
Credit Card - This option is available through the student's Gradelink account and tuition is due on the 1st of each month (August 1st-May 1st). A 3% service charge may be added to your bill each month for this convenience.
Payment is due before services are rendered.
Tuition is due on the 1st of the month. A late fee of $25 will be added to accounts not paid by the 10th of the month.
If accounts are more than 10 days late, services will not be rendered.
All returned checks will be charged a $30 fee. After two returned checks, all payments must be made with cash, money order, cashier's check, or credit card.
Tuition will be pro-rated for students entering school during the course of the year.
Students who attend any day of a given month will owe full tuition for that month. When a student withdraws during the course of the year, tuition charges will be pro-rated on a monthly basis. The student's account must be paid in full in order for report cards, transcripts, or records to be released.
All registration and book rental fees are non-refundable.
