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 ~2.25-2.5 % 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. For more details about the tuition insurance program, parents may reach out to our finance department at any time! 


10 monthly payments are made from August – May
12 monthly payments are made from July – June
