TUITION PAYMENTS & COLLECTION POLICY
Payment Plan: Tuition may be paid annually (one payment), semester (2 payments), quarterly (4 payments) or monthly (10 or 12 payments).
Annually: A 3% discount is given if tuition is paid in full by June 30th.
Semester: Payments are due August 1st and January 1st.
Quarterly: Payments are due August 1st, November 1st, February 1st and May 1st.
Monthly: You may choose 10 or 12 month plan and you may choose to have the money withdrawn from your bank (ACH) on the 5th or the 20th (or both) of the month. The 12 month plan starts in June and goes through May. The 10 month plan starts in August and goes through May. These payments are to be made by direct withdrawal from a checking or savings account and an authorization form must be completed at least two weeks prior to the first withdrawal date. By signing the Tuition and Educational Investment Contract online, you are agreeing to accept the responsibility for the tuition and pay according to the payment plan you have chosen.
All families are required to have a payment plan on record with Deb Murphy, Bookkeeper. This and the ACH Form (if chosen) needs to be in by July 1st.
If you do not choose a payment plan as listed above or if you do not make your payments as listed above, there will be a non-compliance charge to your account of $50 per semester.
Collection of Tuition & Consequences:
If payments are not made as agreed, the student will not be allowed to take their first semester exams. Therefore, a minimum of one-half of the tuition and all fees must be paid prior to the first exam day in December.
The student will not be allowed to take second semester exams (which could result in not graduating) unless tuition and fees are paid in full prior to the first exam day in May.
In the event a family finds themselves in extraordinary circumstances, a written request for an exception to the first semester payment policy can be made to the Principal. The written request is to include an explanation of the circumstances accompanied by a proposed payment plan. The Principal has the authority to make such an exception if it is deemed appropriate. A family’s payment history will be examined in making such a decision. There are no exceptions to this policy at the end of the second semester.
