TuitionRegistration, Tuition Options and Summary of Fees
All students presently registered at Strickland Christian School who plan to return next year must re-register by March 9, 2018 for the 2018/19 school year or lose the registration fee discount and preferred status to new enrollees. The contract and all forms needed for enrollment are available to download from the school’s website. You may re-register your child by signing a new contract, completing the registration forms, and paying the $300 registration fee. All signed contracts, registrations forms, and checks must be given to your child’s teacher or to the school office by March 9, 2018. All contracts and chosen tuition payments are subject to approval by the office. Returning students who register after the March 9th deadline must pay the full $350.00 registration fee. Students may not register unless any balance owed to the school, including tuition, late fees, Extended Care tuition and lunch fees is paid. Siblings of returning students will be honored with a preferred status over new students if they also register by March 9th. The registration fee for siblings who have never attended is $350.00 since they are new students. The activity fee of $110 may be paid at registration or spread throughout the year. A one-time facilities fee of $250.00 must also be paid for each new student at the time of registration or added to the monthly tuition payments.
All new students may secure tentative enrollment by signing a contract, completing the enrollment application, and submitting the registration payment in the amount of $350.00. If space is not available on or after March 9th, then the $350.00 becomes refundable. If you then wish to remain on a waiting list for the first available space, you may leave the $350.00 on deposit and retain a preferred status. If space for your child is available, the check becomes non-refundable upon notification by the school office. A one-time facilities fee of $250.00 must also be paid for each new student at the time of registration or added to the monthly tuition payments.
Upon notification that your contract has been approved, the registration fee and the facilities fee become non-refundable, and payment of the full year’s tuition becomes due on May 10, 2018. The director may agree to an alternative monthly payment schedule; however, the contract is a guarantee that the entire year’s tuition will be paid in full. All monthly payments will be made to Smart Tuition. If a parent moves a distance of at least thirty miles from the school for employment purposes and furnishes a letter from his employer, the outstanding tuition balance will be forgiven.
To reserve a place on the waiting list prior to open enrollment, a prospective new student must submit an enrollment application and a non-refundable application fee of $100. The application fee is credited to the student’s account upon registration. See the enrollment application on our website for all the details.
Strickland School partners with Smart Tuition for the processing and collection of monthly tuition and fee payments. Parents who choose a monthly option must register online with Smart Tuition and choose to make their payments by the 5th or the 15th of each month. Payments are made directly to Smart Tuition and credited to the school’s account. Parents may check their account and make payments online (www.smarttuition.com), pay by credit or debit card, check, cash or automatic bank draft. Smart Tuition will charge a $30 declined payment fee and a $40 late fee.
