We encourage every family to check their ALMA account on a weekly basis.

Checking your account regularly will allow you to view any incidental charges and/or updates to your account and more importantly allow time if there are any adjustments that need to be made prior to the billing due date.

As we are coming to the end of the month, please check now for any unpaid fees. 

Please be reminded that monthly tuition billing will load to your account on the 1st of each month. All charges are due by the 5th of the month. 

If your family is signed up for ACH, all monthly charges will draft on the 3rd. Late payments will incur a 1.5% late fee charge. We appreciate your efforts and partnership to meet these expectations.  

Please do not hesitate to contact the Business Office with any questions and/or concerns.
