Financial and Payment Guidelines - A non-refundable tuition surcharge will be due in February of each year for each child. A new student surcharge will be due within two weeks of acceptance. This surcharge reserves a place for your child. The balance of the tuition, along with a new student fee, is due on June 1. A nine-month payment plan with an interest charge of 10% and financial assistance are available. For information or to receive a financial assistance packet, contact the Senior Accounting Manager at 972-980-6361 in the Business Office. All monthly payments, under the Tuition Payment Plan, are due on the first of the month, beginning June 1. A past due charge of $35 per month will be assessed for any past due payment.
A Tuition Payment Plan and Tuition Refund Program Enrollment Form MUST be completed and signed before a family may be considered for the Tuition Payment Plan. Any family who fails to complete the Enrollment Form will be deemed to have chosen to pay tuition in full, and any tuition and fees not paid by the due date shall be considered “Past Due” and shall be subject to past due charges of $35 per month.
Only those families participating in the Tuition Refund Program are eligible to participate in the Tuition Payment Plan. A student’s account must be current on August 1st for the student’s spot to be held.
A student may not start school with a delinquent account. A student who begins school or begins extended day after the first of the month must pay the tuition for the entire month. A student may not attend classes if his/her account is 60 days past due without a payment plan in place with the Business Office with approval from the Head of School.
Montessori Primary Care, Before and After School Enrichment, Athletic, Summer Camp and After School Activities fees are payable in advance. A student will not be allowed to continue extra-curricular programs if his/her account becomes delinquent.
All tuition payments are for the entire academic year. No refunds will be made if a student is withdrawn, except that portion made available to participants in the Tuition Refund Program.
No student records, including progress reports and references, will be released until all accounts are settled with the Business Office.
If a family has a history of chronic delinquency (defined to be the occurrence of at least one incidence of a “90 days past due” condition in the previous 12 months), the school, in its sole discretion, may (a) decline to enroll a student for succeeding academic years or (b) require a payment plan in place that is approved by the Head of School before offering further participation in the Tuition Payment Plan.
