First Monthly School Bill
Your first monthly school bill is due on August 15th or no later than the first day of school. After the first complete day of school, all fees are non-refundable as well as tuition and curriculum for the first month. Also, if a student attends any part of a month and withdraws from the school, that month's school bill is due. 
 
Multi-Family Children Discount
If you have more than one child enrolled in the school, your first child’s tuition will be at the regular rate. Each sibling thereafter will receive a $10 discount per month.
 
Past Due Accounts
All monthly school bills are due on the 15th of each month. A $25 late fee will be charged if your full payment is not received by the 25th of each month.  
 
If you have not paid your school bill in full by the last day of the month, your child will not be allowed to return to school on the first day of the next month. 
 
The school depends on the cooperation and dependability of parents to keep the school operating. While we try to accommodate and understand financial hardships, the school will follow these guidelines as it relates to past due accounts:  
  1. No child will be allowed to return to a new school year with a past due account from the previous school year.
  2. Your child's transcripts, records and grades will not be released until the account is paid in full.
  3. Graduating seniors will not receive their diploma or transcript until the school account is paid in full. For graduating seniors, school accounts must be paid in full ten (10) business days prior to graduation.

Lunch
The school does not have a cafeteria. Students can either bring their lunch or purchase a school lunch from the freezer, such as a personal size pizza or cheeseburgers. The lunch room does have microwaves, but please be mindful that we are not responsible for assisting children with cooking their lunches from home in the microwaves. Anything that needs to be heated in the microwave needs to be child friendly.
