Tuition





Fall 2018


Tuition:

Tuition is based on the average number of days per month that students are in class and the amount of time in the class. This allows for adequate budgeting of school expenses and income throughout the 10-month school year (September-June) and 2-month summer (July- August). No allowance is made for illness, holidays or inclement weather conditions.


Tuition can be made in 10-monthly installments or in one yearly payment. The yearly payment will include a 5% discount for prepaying.

Vacations:

Families may request up to a two-week vacation from academic days once a school year (September-June). Families may also request a one-week vacation once during the summer (July-August). Tuition will not be charged for these three weeks. During the school year the two weeks may be taken consecutively or one week at a time, however, the week may not be made up of a day here and a day there. A one-month notice is needed.


Late Fees:

Monthly tuition is due by the 1st of each month and is considered late if not received by the 5th. If tuition is not received by the 5th, there will be a $15 per day fee until payment is made in full. If tuition is not received by the 10th, your child will not be allowed to return to school until payment is made in full. There will be return check fee of $15 for all checks returned by the bank.


Sibling Discount:

A 10% sibling discount for one additional child from the same family is given on class tuition only. For each additional child, you will receive a 15% discount on class tuition only.  If schedules are different, the lower tuition rate will be the discounted rate.
