Deposit (fall term): A deposit of one tenth the total tuition or equal to one monthly tuition payment (if entering mid-term) is due upon acceptance into the program and in advance of attendance, or by June 1 for fall enrollment. This deposit will constitute one of ten equal payments (10 payments total for a full term). Payment number two will be due the first day of September or the first day the child attends school (if after September 1). Deposits are not refundable but are applied to tuition at the end of the term. (see TUITION CONTRACT below).

Tuition Contract: A tuition contract is issued for each party who registers a child for the fall or summer sessions. Signers of this contract are responsible for tuition as long as the student is enrolled. Tuition payment will be expected for the balance of a fall term if a student is withdrawn after March 31. Deposits are never refunded, nor is a monthly payment prorated should a child be withdrawn.

Annual Insurance Payment: Parents agree to pay an annual insurance fee to cover the Student's individual portion of the school's total insurance obligation. This is due June 1 or upon acceptance to the school (should this occur after June 1) in the amount of $250.00, or a prorated amount if the Student enters the school after September 1. This fee is nonrefundable.
