Fee Payment Options

Upon receiving a placement offer, a non-refundable deposit of $2,000 is required to secure the placement.  This deposit is applied to your child’s tuition. The balance of the tuition is payable in your choice of three schedules:  

  1. Full-payment schedule where balance is due in September.
  2. Semi-annual schedule where balance is payable half in September and half in February.
  3. Monthly schedule where balance is due in ten equal payments from September through June (a monthly charge of $40 is payable if you select this option).
