2020-2021 Tuition Past Due Balances

  • Past Due Balances for SENIORS: In order to clear seniors for graduation, school policy requires all financial obligations on campus to be paid in full by May 14th. Exceptions are not made to this policy, so we kindly ask that you plan accordingly to ensure your senior is cleared to receive his/her graduation cap and gown.

  • Past Due Balances and Missed Payments: Tuition is due on the 5th of every month unless other arrangements have been made. Past due balances and missed payments have an impact on the cash resources used to meet our financial obligations. Accounts with past due balances greater than 60 days could impact the re-enrollment status of your child. Again, if you have experienced or are experiencing financial hardship, please work directly with our Business Office staff as soon as possible.
