If you made arrangements to pay by a different method and your account is delinquent and is not paid by the 15th of the month, you will be charged the $15 late fee as listed on our Tuition Policy AND your credit card on file will be charged. We do not send out monthly statements. You may view your transactions via your Family Portal account. Tuition remains the same regardless of the number of classes in the month.
