Fundraising: $1500 Annual fundraising per family.

As is the nature of any privately funded educational institution, all of the funds necessary to provide students with the highest quality program available cannot come from tuition alone. Therefore, parents are asked to participate in fundraising activities. Each family will be responsible to raise the amount listed below through our fundraising program or may opt out of fundraising and make the tax deductible payment at their own expense in three installments.

Late Fees: $25
Late fees will be charged when tuition, student fees, and fundraising quarterly payments are overdue. There is a 5 day grace period before late fees are applied. Avoid paying late fees and enroll in our Automatic Tuition Payment Plan.
