Payment Policies

The Fall-Spring Tuition is based on a 10 month schedule which can be paid in full in the beginning of the year for a 5% discount or can be broken up into Ten equal amounts and be paid monthly.  
Mini Session tuition is due at the time of registration.

  • Tuition is due on the 1st of each month.  
  • A late fee of $15 will be applied to any accounts unpaid by the 10th of each month.
  • There will be a $25 fee applied to any returned checks.
