Upon initial acceptance the program, you were asked to make a tuition deposit equal to one tenth of annual tuition. Each year in June, you are asked to again make a tuition deposit. This deposit is used to hold your child’s spot in the program and is applied to the final month of the following school year.
The tuition deposit (equal to one tenth of annual tuition) can only be refunded if one month (30 days) written withdrawal is given.
