- 1/2 of total tuition charges paid by August 15, 2017, with remaining 1/2 due by January 15, 2018.

Failure to pay tuition when due will render the student ineligible to attend the Academy. In cases where tuition and other charges are past due, the Academy is authorized to withhold reports to parents and/or transcripts to other schools or colleges.
Refund of Tuition
The dismissal or withdrawal of a student during an academic year will not release the obligation of the parent or guardian for that school year’s tuition charges.
