Tuition for Kindergarten through Grade 8

Tuition and fees as outlined on our enrollment contract and shown below, may be paid in ten (10) monthly payments starting in August through the school’s authorized collection agency (FACTS). An annual FACTS enrollment fee of $45.00 will be deducted from the responsible party’s account within 14 days of enrollment in the plan.

Our $750.00 annual fundraising fee, $150.00 technology fee and the $50.00 Home School Association dues may be paid in these ten (10) monthly payments. A 3% discount is offered on the “tuition only” portion of the yearly tuition cost if paid in full prior to July 31st.

The first tuition payment must be made in order for your child/ren to start school, as well as any outstanding financial obligations from the prior term The tuition contract with FACTS requires the full payment of tuition under all circumstances. Withdrawal, suspension, or expulsion does not terminate a parent/guardian’s responsibility to pay the full tuition.

The school has the right to deny privileges such as field trips and extra-curricular activities, and/or suspend service to a student for non-payment of tuition and/or fees.
