PAYMENTS

• Tuition is paid on annual basis. To facilitate the finances of some parents, we are making available three additional modes of payment.
When a semi-annual or monthly mode of payment is chosen, payments are due on the first day of the month due.
A service charge of $25.00 will be added to all tuition payments received after the 10th day of the month due.
If payment is not received by the 20th day of the month due, student will not be permitted to enter the classroom until full payment of the amount in arrears is paid.
Students in grades 7th through 12th will not be allowed to take the Quarterly or Final examinations if payment is not received before the date of the exams.
If payment is not received by the 30th of the month due, student will be dropped from the Academy roles. Emphasis on these standards is of great importance for the well being of the Academy, and the policy will be strictly enforced.

• Partial months attended by students shall be paid as full months. If a student withdraws, reimbursement will be made for month or period pre-paid in which the student will not be attending classes from the day parents officially notifies the Academy of the withdrawal.

• If the bank returns a payment check, payment will be considered as in arrears. Returned checks will not be re-deposited and the debt must be paid within the next 7 calendar days, including a $100 returned check fee. After the 7 calendar days, if the payment in full is not received, students will not be allowed to attend classes.

• An arrears report forwarded to Credit Bureaus.
• Legal procedures for collection of debt.
• Payment plan at the discretion of the Academy only.

The Academy cannot guarantee a place for students until they are fully registered and all fees are paid. Please understand that because many grades are full of many candidates applying for admissions, priority in enrollment will be given to students who have paid required fees and are up to date on tuition payments. If the payment of all the Academy fees due on or before August 1, 2020, is not received by the first day of Academy, students will not be allowed to attend classes until such assessment is paid in full.
