Payment of Tuition and Fees
An annual Registration Fee of $200 is due at the time of enrollment. $75 of this fee is nonrefundable and the remaining $125 will be applied toward the tuition payment for your child's first month of preschool. If your child is withdrawn from preschool before their first month of attendance, the entire $200 Registration Fee will be nonrefundable.
For those registering before May 1, 2021, the last month’s tuition (June) is due by May 1, 2021. For those registering after May 1, 2021 the last month’s tuition (June) is due at the time of registration.
Paying the registration fee and last month’s tuition reserves your child’s place in class for the entire school year.
The last month’s tuition can be applied to early withdrawal as long as the Enrollment Modification or Withdrawal Form is signed and submitted at least 30 days prior to the date of intended withdrawal. Please refer to the 2021-22 Tuition and Fees Agreement for further details.
September’s and all other tuition payments are due monthly, by the 5th day of each calendar month.
