FACTS Information
We offer payments of 1 payment, 2 payments, 3 payments and monthly payments (July - May). If you would prefer a different schedule than you have currently set up, just let the business office know and we can make those changes for you!
All families are required to be on automatic payments unless tuition is paid in full before the beginning of the school year. If you would like an invoice payment you must be on a pay in full schedule with payment due in July.
No payment changes will be made within 7 days of a scheduled payment due date. If you need a change, it must be requested more than 7 days in advance or the change cannot be made.
We have moved all payments for the school to be paid through FACTS including all incidental billing such as field trips, library fines, school dances, Kids Klub, Extended Day, and yearbooks. All fees added to your FACTS bill will result in an email notification of the change. You should then log in to FACTS to see the change made. Feel free to contact the business office with any billing questions you might have.
