Tuition is paid in 10 payments during the first week of classes of each month from August through May. Late payments will incur 2% interest per month. If at the end of each quarter a family is not up to date with tuition payments, the school reserves the right to not admit their children for the following quarter until tuition is paid.

Commitment to Pay:
Registration in the school implies a commitment to pay tuition for the full year even if your son or daughter does not finish the school year (whether it is due to a decision of the parents to remove the student, or a decision of the school for academic or behavior reasons). Exceptions may be made for health reasons (with a letter from a doctor) or job-related moves (with a letter from the parents explaining the situation). Students with previous arrangements to attend only one semester will be asked to pay the full registration fee plus one half of the year’s tuition.
