- Monthly Payment Option; Done by bank draft on the 5th or the 20th of the month.
Payments will be divided into 10 payments. The first payment will need to be paid by cash or by check on or before the first day of school in August. Parents or Guardians will need to provide the bookkeeper with a voided check on the first day of school and sign the bank draft form that the bookkeeper will provide for the remaining nine payments. Nine payments (September-May) will be automatically withdrawn from either a checking or savings account by electronic withdrawal. The payment will be withdrawn on either the 5th or the 20th of each month, with the date selected by the family. An authorization for an electronic withdrawal form must be completed for families who select the monthly payment plan. The authorization form should have a voided check (checking account) or a savings account deposit slip attached. Whenever a change of bank or bank account occurs, the school office must be notified and a new authorization form completed.
Whenever a change of bank or bank account occurs, the school office must be notified and a new authorization form completed.
Insufficient Funds Fee:
There will be an Insufficient Funds Fee of $25.00 assessed each time an electronic withdrawal is attempted and there are not sufficient funds available. This fee will be assessed (you will receive an insufficient funds notice from your bank as well) and collected by electronic withdrawal along with the missed tuition payment on the next scheduled withdrawal date (5th or 20th of next month). For example, if a payment was due on the 5th and insufficient funds were available to make the withdrawal, then a $25 fee, plus a double tuition payment would be withdrawn on the 5th of the following month (the next scheduled withdrawal date) to bring payments up to schedule.
