How is tuition handled?
Parents have several options: tuition may be paid in full at the beginning of the year, it may be paid biannually with the first half due at the beginning of the school year and the other half due at the beginning of the 2nd semester, or parents may enroll in a tuition management program (FACTS). FACTS automatically deducts monthly tuition payments from either a checking or savings account. The 12 month plan begins deductions in June, the 11 month plan begins in July, and the 10 month plan begins in August. All monthly payment plans end in May.
