Fee Payment Schedules

  • Upon receiving a placement offer, a non-refundable deposit of $2,000 is required to secure the placement.  This deposit is applied to the 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). 

There are two fees applicable to families new to CFIS:

A one-time, non-refundable New Family Membership fee of $2,000 due May 1 prior to the year starting school.

A one-time Building Fund Loan of $4,000 due September 1. This fee can be returned to the family once the last child leaves the school if there are no outstanding payments, or the family can choose to donate it back to CFIS.
