Payment Plans

Payment plans give families the option to budget each semester’s bill over a three or four-month period with zero interest and no credit check. A nominal fee is charged at the time of enrollment ($45.00 for three payments, $40.00 for four payments). Payments are automatically deducted from a checking/savings account or automatically charged to a credit card.

*Please note: Funds could be held one day prior to the due date in anticipation of the upcoming ACH.
