Parents may choose to pay tuition in 1 installment, 2 installments, in 10 monthly payments, or in 12 monthly payments.
Tuition Insurance: Families who choose to pay in 1 installment have the option to purchase tuition insurance but it is not required. Families who choose to pay in 2, 10*, or 12** monthly installments will be required to purchase tuition insurance. Tuition Insurance is a one time fee of ~2.5 % of your student's tuition price and is paid in the first tuition installment. Tuition insurance safeguards parents financial investment in the event of a job change, move, or another event that would necessitate a mid-year withdrawal. More details about the insurance program will be given when students sign their Enrollment Contract (if requested) and for all students when they sign their Tuition Agreement, if accepted.
* 10 monthly payments are made from August – May
** 12 monthly payments are made from July – June
