Parents/guardians are asked to complete & submit a student enrollment contract and a non-refundable registration fee of $250.00 per student by March 16, 2012 The registration fee guarantees the student a seat for the upcoming school year. Failure to pay the registration fee will not guarantee a student a seat for the upcoming school year. Continued enrollment is not automatic and the school reserves the right to admit or deny admission to any student at the discretion of the administration. “The education of a student is a partnership between the parents and the school. Just as the parent has the right to withdraw a child if desired, the school administration reserves the right to require withdrawal of a student if the administration determines that the partnership is irretrievably broken.”
Returning parents will have received the 2012-2013 Student Financial Contract form with the student’s registration and tuition plans by February. New incoming parents/students will receive the contract upon a student’s acceptance. Enrollment, admission, and assignment to a class will be completed upon completion of all financial obligations. The student contract clearly states all fees are non - refundable upon enrollment. The contract lists the current tuition rate and payment options as follows:
Registration Fee: The 2012-2013 fee was due by March 16, 2012 or 10 days after acceptance.
Curriculum Expense: The 2012-2013 curriculum expense fee were due by July 2, 2012 or 10 days after acceptance.
One Payment Plan: Tuition and curriculum expenses are payable in a single installment, due on or before July 1st, with a $100 discount for each child enrolled at St. Michael School. No discount after July 1, 2012.
Two Payment Plan: Tuition is payable in two installments: the first half of all charges are due on or by July 1, 2012 and the final half is due on or by November 1, 2012.
Nine – Twelve Payment Plan: Tuition is payable in nine to twelve installments. The first payment plan will start in May. Payments will be deducted electronically from your savings or checking account through the FACTS payment program. There will be a one time enrollment fee of $40 for the FACTS program for this calendar year, which will be included in your first monthly installment. Credit Card through the FACTS Program will be assessed 2.5% Convenience fee.
The FACTS plan is an automatic cash transfer plan in which cash is automatically transferred to the school. This program removes the school from the role of “bill collector” and still allows us to minister to any special need that may arise within a family. It also saves the school the cost of postage and printing of statements, as well as the time required in bookkeeping and collection for over 230 separate tuition accounts. This program also allows parents to monitor their account online to track on their own – pls. check with office on special details. Parents also benefit by not having to write a check each month and mailing or delivering it to the school and risking the account of being delinquent. If tuition becomes delinquent students will be released from school and the account will be sent to a collection agency.
Late Fee/Returned Check Fee: There will be a monthly late fee of 1% of the payment due. There is also a $25 fee for any check returned to St. Michael School by the bank because of insufficient funds, etc.
Families desiring to withdraw a student from St. Michael School should provide written notification two (2) weeks prior to planned withdrawal. This time frame will allow administration personnel time to complete transfer documents, compile student records, and provide final billing in order to rectify outstanding accounts. If this is regarding a military transfer the school would need a copy of the transfer orders. Final grades will try to be tabulated but can not be guaranteed to be available upon the student’s final day. Parents are encouraged to leave a mailing address in order for the school to provide remittance and mail any corresponding documents. Each situation will be handled on a case by case basis.
