ACADEMIC YEAR 

Students are enrolled full time for an academic year of twelve months and the entire tuition should be payable in twelve equal installments, by semester or annually for the period of September-to-September the following year. Parents are not exempt from their tuition obligations as a result of the student’s absenteeism from school due to sickness, suspension, extended class trips, other travel, school closures for break or family vacations. 

In order to achieve success in your child’s education, and to assure the proper curriculum of the teachers' program, parents are invited to respect the academic calendar and make sure their child attends class without unjustified absenteeism. 

At the beginning of the year a yearly calendar will be shared to the parents.

New enrollments are subject to a $300 Registration Fee plus a $150 Refundable Deposit. Those costs are due at the time of application. The Registration fee is non-refundable. The Refundable Deposit is refundable in full at the end of student's enrolment period, provided that no outstanding fees apply to the student's account and a proper 4 weeks notice of intention to withdraw the child has been given.The Refundable Deposit may be used to cover school property damages or item loss caused by the student, unless the parents have provided a reimbursement already.

IMPORTANT:  

The monthly fee plan is not a pay as you go plan. Every month is due and has to be paid to respect equity and fairness towards all parents whom are paying the full amount for the year. If you child is not present at school it is your responsibility to cover the whole Academic year fees.  The school has the right to refuse admission for a child until the tuition is courteously paid. Vacation holidays taken inside the school term (Such as DECEMBER, APRIL, MAY or JUNE) are not exempt from payments. Every month is due and your payment should be arranged prior to your departure. Failure of payment will require a New Registration fee upon the child’s return to school. Places will not be kept for any child while they are away from the school without normal payment being made. 

Child sickness or short-term absence from school does not affect payment.
