Installment Options (Terms)

The annual materials & books contribution is currently $65. (Waived in 2020/21, students order books directly.)
The first time registration fee for new students is currently $65.

The annual materials & books contribution and first time registration fee have to be paid on or before September 1st (via payment of the down-payment).

Payments towards the annual tuition can be made in 1, 2, or 4 installments (except for adult classes that have to be paid in a maximum of two installments - Sept 15, 2020 and January 15, 2021).

Payment in a single installment does not carry any admin fee and provides you with one parent team t-shirt as a gift.

Important: A down-payment of $150 is due at registration or as soon as possible thereafter (and on September 15 the latest) to finalize the enrollment. The percentages below refer to:
Annual Tuition - Down-Payment = Remainder Tuition.

Registration fees and Book & Materials contributions are separately due on September 15.

For tuition amounts, please refer to the Tuition page or simply use the Tuition Payment Assistant.

*Half the admin fees (i.e. $7) can be deducted if all installment checks are pre-dated and received on or before September 25, 2020.

Payments that are more than two weeks late carry an additional $25 late fee per month. A payment is considered late if less than the respective amount of the 4-installment option is received more than two weeks after the respectively indicated due date.

Why this format? Minimizing the number of transactions minimizes admin workload and headcount, which in turn allows to keep the annual tuition as low as possible.

NB: Admin fees are per transaction (e.g. per check or card payment), not per student.


Important: for exact amount or to pay in several installments, please refer to the Payment Assistant.
