After much research and investigation, we have partnered with FACTS Management Company to help us manage our tuition payment program and financial aid assessments. We are excited to be working with them and are confident this program will offer greater efficiency and financial stability for the school while providing convenience to families.
You will realize these benefits by using FACTS for your tuition payment plan:
1. Payment Dates: You may choose either the 5th, 15th, or 25th of each month as your payment date. Automatic payments can be made from a checking or savings account or from a variety of credit cards, if applicable.
2. Convenience and Security: Along with multiple payment plan options, your payments are processed securely through a bank to bank transaction.
3. Peace of Mind Insurance: FACTS offers this optional benefit for only $14 per year per family. In the event of death of the Responsible Party or spouse, the remaining tuition balance owed for the current school year is paid to the school.
4. Consumer Account: You may check your personal account or make payments online from the convenience of your home or office anytime.
Families will have 4 payment options through FACTS:
ONE FULL tuition payment, DUE by August 1, 2015 (no charge)
TWO Tuition payments, DUE by July 31, 2015 and January 29, 2016 ($10 fee)
TEN MONTHLY Tuition payments, beginning in July, and ending in APRIL ($43 fee)
TWELVE MONTHLY Tuition payments, beginning in July, and ending in JUNE ($43 fee)
This is not an option for families that have a student in the preschool program, in 8th grade, or that register for school after May 15, 2015.
Additionally,j there are 3 monthly payment date options: 5th, 15th, and the 25th of each month.
All accounts must be set up at least 30 days before the first tuition payment is to be made. We are strongly encouraging parents to set up the account between April 2, 2015 and May 31, 2015, so that tuition payments may begin in July. Any account that is not set up by May 31 will not be given an option to pay tuition over a 12-month period.
All FACTS accounts must be set up online. All finalized tuition payments will be communicated to families in June, as long as all other documentation is in order by May 31, 2015. Any portion of the registration, tuition payment preference form, or actual tuition payments that are not up to date and complete, will delay your tuition payments from beginning, and you will not be given a 12-month option.
