Payment of Tuition

Tuition may be paid in one of the following ways:

  • One installment due August 15, 2022.
  • Semi-Annual payments with 1/2 of total tuition charges paid by August 15, 2022, and the remaining 1/2 due by January 15, 2023.
  • Quarterly payments with payments being made by Aug 15, 2022, Nov 15, 2022, Feb 15, 2023, and May 15, 2023.
  • Monthly payments made through the FACTS Tuition Management Program, where tuition payments are made automatically from your bank account. Semi-Annual and Quarterly payments can also be made through FACTS. Monthly tuition payments must be made through FACTS. Monthly tuition checks cannot be accepted. » Sign Up For FACTS

Failure to pay tuition when due will render the student ineligible to attend the Academy. In cases where tuition and other charges are past due, the Academy is authorized to withhold reports to parents and/or transcripts to other schools or colleges. Tuition payments not received when due and in accordance with the Academy’s payment policies will be assessed a late fee.

Refund of Tuition

The dismissal or withdrawal of a student during an academic year will not release the obligation of the parent or guardian for that school year’s tuition charges.
