    2019 - 2020 Pre-Kindergarten Financial Policies

    Revised 09/20/2019

     

    Pre-Kindergarten tuition for the 2019 - 2020 school year is $3,270.00 plus an additional $327.00 non-refundable deposit due at registration. The tuition may be paid monthly with ten equal payments of $327.00. Each payment covers 18 days of service. The deposit** will remain in the student’s account and will be applied to the Pre-K student’s final monthly payment before entering Kindergarten. Early monthly payments are always welcome and will be credited to the student’s account accordingly.

    After touring the school, an application can be submitted to the magnet office, prior to the close of the on-time Choice Application window. Once the application is received, it is processed via a lottery.  Typically, parents/guardians are notified by the end of April via email. The communication will inform you if your child was accepted or wait-listed. 

     

    If your child is already enrolled in the preschool program, below is a Payment Reminder Schedule for both Tuition and Extended Day.
