Ways to Pay

NEW – Credit Card

For the 2018-2019 school year, we are piloting a Credit Card payment option.  In order to be able to offer this option to our parents, we need to add a 2.2% processing fee to each transaction.  At this time, the credit card option is only available for regular preschool tuition. You can pay for enrichment and other fees with the methods outlined below.

To pay by credit card, you will go to the Make a Payment page on our website (not the Parent Portal).  Choose the amount you want to pay and you will be directed to a PayPal page to finish your transaction.  You do not need a PayPal account to use this feature.

Automatic, recurring payments cannot be set up using credit cards.

Annual Tuition Payment – The one exception to the 2.2% processing fee is for all annual tuition payment made before May 15th (Extended from May 1st)  If you choose to pay your annual tuition by credit card, you will not receive the 2% discount.  Instead, you will not be charged the 2.2% processing fee.  After May 15th, the 2.2% fee applies.

ACH – Recurring

Fill out and return an ACH authorization form. Your current balance will be debited on or soon after the 1st of every month.  This includes regular tuition, any enrichment classes, registration fees, etc.
