Payment Options

Upon acceptance into the program, a non-refundable deposit of $1000 is due immediately to confirm your child’s spot in our program. This payment will be applied to your first tuition payment due on June 1st. All payments are made online. A $50 late fee will be applied if payment is received after the due date. If payment is more than 2 weeks late, payment will be due in full for the year in order to remain in program.

We offer families 3 different payment options for tuition as outlined below. All tuition payments are non-refundable.

Payment Option A: Annual tuition will be divided into 4 equal payments due on June 1st, August 1st, October 1st and December 1st.  Payments are made through Tuition Express using a checking or savings account. This must be set up in advance with the director.  All payments will be processed automatically on the 28th day of the month prior to the due date of payment. We will waive the 3% processing fee per charge if you decide on this payment option.

Payment Option B: Annual tuition will be divided into 4 equal payments due on June 1st, August 1st, October 1st and December 1st. Payments are made through Tuition Express using a credit card (Mastercard and Visa are accepted). You can set up payment with your credit cards directly through your Tuition Express account, and process your payment prior to each of the 4 due dates. There is a 3% processing fee for each charge.

Statement of Non-Refundable Deposit

After a child is accepted into one of our schools, a $1000 non-refundable deposit is necessary in order to secure a place for your child on the class list. This deposit will be credited to the tuition fees. There will be no partial refunds of deposits or exceptions made to this policy.

Early Withdrawal Policy

There are no tuition refunds for any reason. If you need to withdraw your child from the program before the end of the tuition school year, all tuition payments paid to date are forfeited and you are required to make scheduled payments while enrolled.
