There is no tuition charge for students in kindergarten.
Tuition is charged for preschool age children (3- and 4-year-olds). For the 2017-2018 school year, the annual tuition is $4,000. The tuition payment is $400/month (includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks).
Monthly payments are based on one full academic year’s charges divided into ten (10) equal installments so that the monthly payments do not fluctuate. Each payment is due on or before the 15th day of the month prior to the month of service. A late fee of $15.00 will be assessed for payments received fifteen (15) days after the due date. All fees will be added to the next month’s tuition payment.
2017-2018 Payment Schedule:
|Month|| Due Date (in office)
|| Late Fee added (Close of Business)
Should you enroll your child any time after the first day of school, the tuition payment due for that month will be prorated based on a daily rate of $22/day and is due upon enrollment. If you withdraw your child before the end of the school year, your final bill will also be prorated by the daily rate of $22/day. Tuition is not refundable for any reason.
